A loan of $775 helped to buy lumber.


Mauricia's story

Mauricia, 64, is a humble woman married to Maurino, 61. They live in their own house they bought; they have been married 30 years. They have two children she supports so that they can get ahead and have a better quality of life. Mauricia is a hardworking woman. She and her husband work in carpentry, an activity they’ve been doing for more than 12 years since her husband knew how to make all types of furniture (chairs, armoires, shelving, etc.) What she likes best about her work is to fill her orders responsibly and that people admire her work. This work is very profitable because she always has pending orders to fill which is why she always counts on the loans MFP grants her and thanks to lenders who trust in her work they can stay in business thanks to the loan they get. This is her 8th loan and once again she’s grateful for the trust placed in her work. She also thanks the members of her communal bank for supporting them to stay in business. She will use the 2,000 new soles to buy lumber to make furniture.
