A loan of $1,350 helped to travel to the capital to buy more merchandise (clothing and jewelry).


Victor's story

Víctor is 41 hard-working and eager to grow his business. His wife is Nila, a saleswoman, and they have no children. They live in their relative's home.
He sells clothing and jewelry for a living. He buys his merchandise in the capital and sells them out of his home to his friends, neighbors and relatives. He has run this business for 8 years with the help of his wife; and in his spare time, he looks for new customers and collects payments for delivered goods. He enjoys his business as it allows him to cover his expenses and also to work independently. Before this, he had many troubles finding work, but now sees good results and plans to increase the volume of sales by diversifying the items offered.

This is his fourth credit from MFP, and he hopes it will continue to allow him to meet his goals. He also feels great support from the communal lender and its members. With this credit of 3500 nuevos soles, he will buy wholesale clothing and a greater variety of jewelry for resale. This credit will also cover his travel expenses to the capital.
