A loan of $775 helped to buy brick-making raw materials.

Dina's story

Dina is 27-years-old and her partner is Víctor, 30; they have a daughter. They live together in their own house they bought ten years ago. Her greatest wish is to get ahead and have a better quality of life.

Dina has supported herself since the age of 21. Her dream was to have her own grocery store but due to fate she started manufacturing and selling artisanal bricks. She does not regret this since it’s produced economic satisfaction for her. She currently sells them in her own location since the zone is in constant economic and population growth. She normally works with her partner but always needs helpers to facilitate production is a shorter amount of time. Her sales point is the factory where they are made and thanks to her work she was able to buy a cargo truck to be able to transport bricks to her customers thus reducing costs and time.

This is her MFP loan #9 so she commits to continue making her payment punctually and efficiently. In addition, she feels satisfied with her communal bank because she works with people who support her business plan. She will use these 2000 new soles to invest in her brick factory; she will buy needed raw materials.
