A loan of $750 helped to buy utensils and supplies for her restaurant.

Alejandrina's story

Alejandrina is a very kind and noble women. She is 59, divorced, and lives in her own house together with her only daughter, 30-year-old Susana.

She has a restaurant where she is attentive to customer service with the help of her daughter, who helps her with the administrative part. Alejandrina has spent 25 years working in this business and is always preparing exquisite dishes like fried trout, stew, and soup among other foods. In her town (located an hour north of the main city) there is enough commerce and transport routes that she always has a great turnout. She knows that she has competition, but people still return to her restaurant since it is the most presentable one.

This is her seventh loan with MFP and she feels very grateful for the trust they give her, which is why she promises to be on time with her payments like she was with the previous loans. She is a responsible member of her communal bank. With the 2,000 nuevos soles that she is requesting, she will buy plates, glasses, and supplies in order to continue preparing her exquisite meals.
