Neofita's story

Neófita is 41 years old, and is married to 56-year-old Javier. They have two children and live together in their own house, which is made from simple material. She is a woman who likes business. She opened a grocery store 3 years ago in her house, and despite that she alone serves it, sometimes she counts on the support of her children and her husband. She starts her work very early, at 5 in the morning, since her neighbors are farmers who wake up early to work in their plots. Thus, they need to have the necessary groceries to make their food for the day. The problem is when she runs out of merchandise and doesn't have the money necessary to stock up. For this reason, she turns to the loans. This is her first loan with MFP and she feels happy about the opportunity that they gave her, and for the trust in her work. For this, she promises to be punctual in her payments, and such will be able to access other loans in the future. In her communal bank, she feels peaceful to work with kind and responsible members. With these 4000 nuevos soles, she will stock up with merchandise for her store. She will buy sacks of sugar, cereals, drinks, candies, etc.
