Saby's story

Saby is 33 years old and is a hardworking and entrepreneurial woman with a lot of motivation to succeed. She is separated from the father of her daughter. She now lives in her parents' home with them and with her 8 year old daughter.

Her business is a bookstore, and for this she rearranged her house and placed a glass case in it with all the items she sells. In this way, she avoids the cost of renting another space. Her bookstore has been in business for more than 5 months, in which time she has become well known and popular, relying on the support of her husband to do publicity in his free time. In the mean time, she also sells wood, which she sends to the capital. She thinks both businesses are a great advantage for the profits they give her, and she also has the means to give the best to her daughter and feels like a productive woman.

This is her second loan with MFP, and she feels thankful that they have placed their confidence in her.

With the loan of 1,200 Soles, she will buy more bookstore items, of a variety of types, at a bulk sales price. She thinks that with a greater variety of items, her store will be more desirable.
