Claudia's story

Claudia, 45, is divorced with four children. They live in their own house located in the district of Llochegua.

Claudia is a mother who works selling clothing and footwear. She got into this business thanks to her beloved sister who already had a business like it, and who was the one who encouraged her so she could generate her own income. The husband she had left her and she took charge of the family, but the income she had from agricultural work was not enough, so she took her sister's advice and started her business selling footwear.

In the beginning she began with a small quantity, which little by little got bigger thanks to the good reception she has, especially at the beginning of the school year. Generally she works with the help of her younger children who also do their part, with the goal that the family can have prosperity. Claudia is happy with the business because it gives her a very good profitability thanks to the fact that the footwear she sells is of good quality.

This is her second loan with MFP, for which she promises to make her payments punctually. Claudia is satisfied with the work of her communal bank because they are working very well.

With the 2,000 nuevos soles (PEN) she will buy more footwear.
