Charita's story

Charita is 39 years old. She is a kind and hard-working woman. From the moment her partner left, she didn't hesitate to start working in any activity so that she would be able to support her daughter Alith, who is 15 years old. Her grocery store opens very early, and that is why her customers go looking for basic items, since they know they will find them and that they will be received with a smile and pleasant manners. Her business is located in an area of her house that she prepared for that. She has been doing this for 8 years and she likes it, because she doesn't have to get out of the house a lot and she can be there for whatever her daughter needs her; and also her daughter helps her with the customers. Right now, Charita wishes to expand her store and offer a larger variety of products. This is her 4th loan with MFP and she is very happy to know that she has a financial support, since it makes her feel confident to move forward with her business. On the other hand, she commits, once again, to make the repayments on time, since she doesn't want to look bad in front of her group, because they are all always on time. With the requested amount (300 soles), she will buy products and merchandise, such as rice, sugar, oil, candy, beverages and others, to offer a greater quantity and variety to her customers.
