A loan of $600 helped to buy parts for washers and also tools.

Olga's story

Olga, who is 31 years old, is a very hardworking and responsible young woman who lives with her partner. Together they have a 6 year old child who is her reason for living and for whom she works daily to give him a better quality of life. Together they live in their in-laws' house who help them in taking care of their son.

Olga's work is in the line of repairs on home appliances from White Line, and also in the sales of parts for the same products. She works together with her partner, and they make really good team of workers. Before that, she worked in another line of work and her partner worked as a helper in a home appliance parts store, in which he worked to find new customers. But now they have left these jobs and for the past year they have been working in their own business and they are well received. They do repairs on washers, ovens, microwaves, rice cookers, and other appliances.

What she likes about her work is that she has time free to work quietly without being unable to care for her son, and also that she works with her partner, and this is very satisfying for her. She has a good income now that people are always asking for her services. She hopes to continue in this work until she can establish a storefront where she can wait on her customers in greater comfort while maintaining home delivery services.

This is her 10th loan with MFP, and for this she thanks all the people who have given her the opportunity to have access to a financial credit so that she can make her plans happen. Additionally, she says its a pleasure to work with her community bank, since she has gotten to know the members and considers them to be responsible and sympathetic people.

With the amount that she is asking for, 1,500 Soles, she will buy replacement parts for washers, and she'll also buy some tools to develop better services in repairs of home appliances.
