Purificacion's story

Purificación is 51 years old and is a very enterprising and hardworking woman. She is married to Alfredo, and they have four adult children. Currently she lives with her husband and one of her daughters.

She has a business selling beverages. She has a small bar in her house where every day she serves all the people who come to quench their thirst. Her location is located in front of a park, and this allows her to have clients at all times, especially on weekends. She has been in this business for over seven years and runs the business with the help of her daughter-in-law. But she has noticed that there are not places to buy food in her area, so she has decided to enter this market as well. She wants to complement her bar with a small restaurant.

This is her second loan with MFP. She wishes to thank all of those who are making it possible to obtain this loan, which will help her to put her plans into action. On another note, she promises to complete her repayments in a punctual manner. Also, she says that she is very happy to belong to her communal bank, since she has observed that all of the members are responsible and supportive.

With the funds she is seeking, 1000 soles, she will buy more beverages to increase the variety she is able to offer. She will also buy all the ingredients she needs in order to start selling food.
