Celia's story

Celia, 36, is married to Luis; they live in family harmony with their children in their own house located in Chilca. She is a very enterprising person. She’s earned economic support for many years selling food. To date, the activity has been very beneficial because she can do it in the morning and help her children with their school work in the afternoon. The welcome Celia’s work has motivates her to continue and to make future plans. One of them is to open a restaurant and she’s currently in the process of doing so.

This is why she’s asking for a loan to invest in the purchase of pots and utensils for her business. With profits obtained she will cover her two children’s schooling costs; they are about to start the school term.

This is the 8th MFP loan she’s gotten and she feels grateful for the support she receives. In addition, she promises to be punctual with her installment payments. Celia will use the requested money to buy ingredients to prepare her delicious food dishes.
