Quelita's story

Quelita is 54 years old and she is a hardworking woman with a great desire to progress in life. He lifetime companion’s name is Cesar and he is a farmer; they have four children aged 23, 22, 21 and 15 whom they love very much.

She sells groceries in a shop she has set in her house about 7 years ago. She has started this activity because she needed an additional income and thanks to a loan she obtained she could finish buying all she needed to open her shop, in time succeeding in increasing the number of her customers. She likes her job because she can stay hone while counting on the security provided by an economic income; on top of this, she can use her free time to engage in other activities such as taking care of her house. On the other hand, she does not like it when customers ask to pay their shopping on credit: she says she has had bad experiences with this form of payment because she was not repaid, and for this reason she now refuses to accept it, and she sells everything for cash, as this is how she gets the best results.

This is the third loan she is requesting from MFP and she feels deeply grateful for the economic support she has received. She also likes being a part of her Communal Bank because she knows the other members and she thinks they are responsible and caring people.

The 1500 PEN she has requested will be invested in the purchase of more groceries such as rice, sugar, eggs, milk and other products at wholesale prices; she will look for the best products at the cheapest prices in order to earn a better income.
