A loan of $1,150 helped to purchase additional medications for her pharmacy.


Xiomara's story

Xiomara is 36 years old. She is a cheerful and responsible woman who lives in a rented house along with her 53-year-old husband, José, and her three children.

Xiomara sells medication; she has a pharmacy that she managed to open eight years ago, where things have gone very well for her with the support of her husband. She counsels her customers about the best medicines. The people in her area always turn to Xiomara, because apart from being their adviser about illnesses, she is their friend, and they trust her.

This is loan number nine with MFP and Xiomara feels happy to count on financing that supports her business plans. In her communal bank, she is a supportive member.

With the 3,000 nuevos soles (PEN) that she is now requesting, Xiomara will purchase a variety of medications to offer in her pharmacy.
