A loan of $575 helped to buy fruit and assorted packages of soft-drinks.

Maria's story

Maritza is 28-years-old; her spouse is Richard, 30. They have a five-year-old daughter. They all live together in a house they bought two years ago.

She started selling soft-drinks and beverages at home a year ago. At the moment, she has a refrigerator where she stores and keeps her beverages cold because the climate in this zone is very hot. She considers the business to be profitable because it always produces income. However, the difficulty she has is that she has to wait until her husband brings in the harvest to have money available to stock up which is why she now calls on MFP in order to stay in business and be able to save up more to open a store.

This is her first loan and she has peace of mind knowing that she will have this financial support. In addition, she thanks her communal bank for being supportive people who accepted her participation in it. She will use the 1500 new soles to buy assorted packages of soft-drinks and fruit to make the beverages.
