Lidia's story

Lidia is a very happy 38 year old woman. She lives in her own house along with her son, Julian, who is 12, to whom she provides love and much care since she separated from her husband.

Her business is selling food in the shop she has in her house. She is perseverant in the activity she performs and is always in her shop. She considers that it is a job that gives her time for her son and her home chores and with which she can be independent. She has 13 years experience selling groceries, vegetables, and whatever is necessary for housewives. Her customers comer to her shop for the good service that Lidia provides. It is due to this that she always has economic income with which she can pay expenses for her son. Her greatest priority is to increase the products of her business in order to increase sales.

This is her 11th loan with MFP. She feels happy to continue having this economic support and being able to continue with her work. In her community bank, she is a member who does not hesitate to give her opinion about work. With the 3,500 new "soles" that she is requesting, she will buy rice, sugar, preserves, meat, among other items.
