Aidee's story

Aidee, age 49, is a very hard-working young woman. She has lived with her life partner for many years, and they have four adult children. Two of them, ages 22 and 20, live with them.

Aidee sells groceries. She has a small business in her house. She works full time, and she is very happy about her sales. She receives help from her husband and her children. This allows her to have enough time to do some basic household chores. She stocks her store weekly by making purchases at the city’s commercial centers.

She has been doing this work for five years. The thing she likes about it is that it produces income without demanding excessive effort. It is going well for her because she gets good income, which allows her to make her payments punctually. Therefore, she wishes to expand her business. She will do this in order to save, which will result in improving the infrastructure of her house.

This is her fourth loan with MFP, and she expects to be able to live up to the requirements of the institution and her group. This way she will be able to be a good member and make her payments on time. So far she is doing very well with her group, and she hopes to continue in this manner. The requested 2,000 soles is to buy groceries like one sack of rice, sugar, three cartons of milk, bread, eggs, cooking oil, bananas, onions, flour, vegetables, and soft drinks.
