A loan of $1,325 helped to buy more cereals.


Zocima's story

Zocima is 50 years old and widowed with three children. They live together in a house that they own situated in the center of the Tereza sector of the Pichari district. Zocima is a widowed mother who makes a living selling cereals, which she distributes at the markets that take place in her community.

She says that she enjoys running her business, as she has always liked going to the markets to make her sales. She used to sell liquor, but when her truck rolled over she lost the capital from that business, and as a consequence she is moving forward with this new business. Zocima is content with business she is creating. It generates a good economic profit because it is the only one that sells all types of cereals. In the future she is thinking of making a living buying and selling livestock because she has seen that there is a great deal of demand.

This is her second loan with MFP, and she promises once again to be punctual in making her payments. With 3,500 PEN she will be able to buy more cereals.
