A loan of $1,125 helped to buy tables and chairs for her restaurant.


María's story

María, 57, lives with her four children, who are already adults, in the house she bought thanks to her job.

Her job is selling beverages and traditional dishes of the area. She does this work with the help of people who are responsible for serving the customers. She considers it very profitable, especially on the weekend when many more people come to try the delicious traditional dishes she makes. She wants to expand her place in the future so her customers will be much more comfortable. But her priority now is to improve her furniture.

Once more she is grateful for the financial support that MFP gives her, because this way she is certain of making progress in her work. It also pleases her to be part of her communal bank because she works with very responsible people.

With this loan of 3,000 nuevos soles [PEN], she will buy tables and chairs to better equip her restaurant.
