Dalia's story

Dalia is 41 years old. She is a fighter wanting to excel. Her partner is Roque, with whom she has four children who are 19, 21, 18, and 15 years old. She lives in her own home with her partner and her youngest daughter, since all of the rest are independent and have their own families.

Her work consists of selling fast food (fried) in her own store located in the main market of the city in which she lives. Every day she carries out the purchase of her principle ingredients, such as chicken, sausages, potatoes, and oil. Her hours of business are from three in the afternoon until eight at night. She has been in business for five years and she does so with her daughter’s help. What she likes about her job is it allows her to have an income that gives her the peace of being able to provide a better quality of life for her daughter, and as a result has also been able to give everything necessary and a better education to her other children. She hopes to continue progressing and expanding her business.

This is her first loan with the institution MFP, and therefore is thankful to those who are financing her loan. They are giving her the support necessary to continue with her objectives. She is committed to the members that form the group. Furthermore, she is convinced that she will be a member who will be punctual and responsible in her payments.

With the loan of 1000 Nuevos Soles requested, she will buy all of the ingredients necessary to prepare her dishes. Her daily investment reaches approximately 100 Nuevos Soles.
