Susan's story

Susan, 21 years old, is a fighter. She lives with her mother, Yolanda, her father, Walter, and her brother, José, in their own house, which is in the Chilca district. She is studying civil engineering at a renowned university, where she pays monthly tuition. This is why she started a business selling household products. In time she put together the necessary items to open a simple hardware store, although she is missing a lot. She hopes that her effort will yield results and that she can make her business known and above all profitable. Her main sales are of cement, iron, nails of all sizes, and gravel. She says that the weekends are when she makes the most income, and she also says that she opened a restaurant with her mother. Now she wants to improve the income she earns, since she wants to finish her studies and start new projects. She knows that in order to achieve this she needs a good amount of money saved. She belongs to the "IDME" communal bank, and this is her eighth loan with MFP. She hopes for your cooperation in order to continue with her goals. On the other hand, she promises once more to make her payments on time. She is also happy to be part of her communal bank because all of its members are responsible and supportive. Susan will use the loan to purchase a shelf where she can put soft drinks and other drinks for her restaurant as well as plates and cutlery to serve the guests.
