Lita's story

Lita is 49 years odl. She is a kind woman who is very kind and enterprising. Her spouse is Tolentino. He is 53 and she has five children with him. Four of them are grown and thanks to her wise advice they are people who are good members of society. Only María, who is 15 years old, is the only one who still depends on them for her education.

Lita's main activity is selling food that she makes at home. She has set up a space to serve her guests. Everyday she goes to the market very early seeking fresh ingredients and materials to prepare her foods. She has been doing this job for 6 years. She does it alone since at this time she doesn't consider that she needs any personnnel. It is going very well for her. She generates good daily sales and therefore good income. She uses them to be able to cover the main necessities of her family. A while ago she started expanding her business and now she also sells breakfasts in the morning. That is why it has become necessary to acquire, as soon as possible. some items and accesories that she needs to continue making her foods.

This is her 17th loan with MFP and she is very happy with the financial support that is being offered to her. With it she will feel safe going ahead with her work. On the other hand, she is committed to making her payments on time, as has been scheduled. She is also very happy to belong to her communal bank, since they are very responsible and supportive.

With the ammount she has asked for, 1500 soles, she will buy ingredients and materials wholesale, such as rice, oil, sugar, pasta, tubers and condiments. In addition, she will buy two more and eight chairs for her customers.
