A loan of $575 helped to buy merchandise to stock her grocery store.


Merly's story

Merly is 42 years old and lives in her own house with her husband and 4 dear children, for whom she expends all her efforts. Merly, thanks to her high energy, now has a grocery business that she manages well. Her sales have been higher than in the past. Still, she is trying to improve the store so she can attract more customers. Merly works on her own in her store, which is in a section of town where there is little business competition. Her plan is to grow her grocery business by expanding the store and stocking more products. This will be her 5th loan cycle with MFP. She promises to continue making her payments on schedule and complying with her communal bank, as the members stand together. With the 1,500 nuevos soles, she will buy merchandise to stock her grocery store.
