Victoria's story

Victoria, 45, is an enterprising and determined woman. She lives with Julio, who makes a living in livestock and with whom she has three children. She lives in her partner's house together with her daughter.

She works a lot so she can give her family a better quality of life. Every day Victoria goes to her refrigerator where she keeps the products she sells to her customers. She does her inventory and makes a list of the beverages she needs, then goes to the market to buy them. When she gets home she organizes, stores, and exhibits the beverages of different brands, containers, flavors, and sizes. She also has other businesses but to a lesser extent, such as livestock. She has been doing this work for five years and up to now she has had a helper. She considers her business very profitable for the good earnings it gives her and for the constant demand.

In the time she has had this business, she has realized that you never know what type or brand of beverage customers are going to request. She's very responsible with her business and with society. That's why she sells carbonated drinks to everyone but alcoholic beverages only to adults of age, according to what's allowed in her city. She hopes to continue supporting her business.

This is her eighth loan with MFP and she hopes for help to continue with her objectives. On the other hand, she pledges to continue being punctual as with her previous loans. She also wants to continue working with the members of her communal bank because they're all very nice and supportive.

With the requested loan of 3000 soles [PEN], she's going to buy carbonated beverages in a variety of brands and sizes to have disposable stock to sell because sales are going up with the higher temperatures in the area.
