A loan of $750 helped to purchase a refrigerator.


Haydee's story

Haydee is twenty-nine years old. Together with her partner Faustino, who is 44 years old, she bought the house where they live with their two daughters, Tania, who is ten years old, and Marilyn, who is only one year old. They hope to provide their daughters with a better quality of life.
Haydee is a very industrious woman. She sells groceries in the store she opened in her home two years ago. She earns good income since her store is located in a spot where many people pass by. She normally works alone while her partner is working in the fields. With each one’s work, they manage to cover their living costs. However, the problem she has is that she cannot keep the drinks she sells cold because she does not have a cooler, and in the hot region where she lives, everyone asks for cold drinks.

She feels very grateful to MFP [Microfinanzas Prisma] for help in obtaining a loan, which she is sure will help her to keep working. Likewise, she is grateful to her communal bank for working with caring and responsible people.
With these 2,000 PEN [$750], along with her savings, she will purchase the refrigerator she is anxious to have.
