Liliana's story

Liliana is 25 years old. She is a responsible and driven woman who lives with her partner, Jimy, and their two sons Jim (5 years old) and Jhosua (11 months old). Liliana and Jimy are a hardworking couple with dreams of building their own house out of good material. At the moment, they live in a house made of adobe.

Two years ago, Liliana made a business proposal to Jimy, who has worked as a mechanic for many years, that the couple work together to start a business selling spare parts and doing auto repairs. So the couple decided to start their business as a team. Since then, they have united their services and been successful, thanks to the growth in the number of cars in their area as well as the good references Jimy carried with him into this business. Liliana is confident that their business will continue growing and with time, will expand in a way that will allow them to build their house and open a branch there. The key in this moment is for Liliana to keep her store well-stocked with all of the equipment necessary for Jimy to continue doing repairs.

This is Liliana's fourth loan with MFP. Because of her punctuality, she has earned the bank's trust as a borrower. Liliana is very grateful to the other members of her community bank because they are very optimistic and organized workers. With the 4,000 soles from this loan, Liliana will buy spare auto parts at wholesale as well as some tools to use for vehicle repairs in her business.
