Eva's story

Eva is 41 years old. She is a good, kind, and very responsible woman. She is married and is a mother of three children, who are 21, 19, and 15. They are in school and still depend on her for their education, food, and other needs. The family lives in their own home, which she was able to buy with her husband through much struggle. Here she spands her days with her children, while her husband constantly travels to other cities to work temporary jobs.

She works selling bakery goods for cash and on credit. She orders wholesale from a bread factory offering various products: cakes such as "piononos" and "queques," whole-wheat breads, etc. She has a small store at home, where she keeps her products. She has been doing this for 8 years and works on her own, but Eva is not a woman to be easily outdone: she also works raising poultry, and growing tomatoes during the season. What she likes about her work is that it allows her time to do all of these things, so that she has several sources of income. This allows her to cover her scheduled loan payments. From now on, she would like to start a new project: to have a restaurant.

This is her 18th loan with the MFP institution, so she is committed once again to pay her installments, as with the previous loans. She really enjoys belonging to her communal bank, because its members are very responsible, and most of all, supportive.

She will use the requested amount, 3800 soles, to purchase more products to sell, as well as some ingredients and utensils she needs to start her restaurant business.
