Francis's story

Francis, 21, is an enterprising youth who is single and has no children. She lives in her parent's house with her brother, and they work together each day so that they can have a better quality of life.

She works selling fast food (fried chicken). She works daily, along with her parents. She gets up very early and goes to the market along with her mother to look for the freshest products and meat so that they can always provide their customers with the best. In her house, in the afternoons, they are in charge of preparing the food so that everything is ready by 6pm. At this time, they start to sell the delicious and well-served plates of roasted chicken.
This business has been running for 8 years, but she has taken charge of it over the last 2 years, because prior to this it was run by her parents. With the income from this business, she is able to cover the expenses for her Veterinary Medicine studies. This is going very well, and she is very optimistic in everything that she does. Her goal is to expand her business, but at this time she just hopes to consolidate the business and gradually make progress with it.

This is her 5th loan with MFP, and she is grateful to them for making it possible for her to continue toward her goals. Also, she is very committed to making her payments on time as she did with her previous loans. She is very content with her communal bank, because all of the members are good, friendly and cooperative people.

With the sum of 3,000 Peruvian soles she requests, she will buy tables and chairs, and also materials to make some improvements to her business premises, such as repairs to the roof and floor. In addition, she will stock up on non-perishables to have on reserve in case prices rise.
