Rosa's story

Rosa, 37, is a great woman. She has two daughters: Diana, 19, and Sandy, 15. She has a house built of substantial materials that she managed to finish thanks to ten long years’ of hard work and effort. She’s currently a housewife who must watch after her daughters’ wellbeing and some needs of her current partner with whom she plans to work with the best possible enthusiasm. Her source of income is some productive fields. The cocoa bean yields suffered some losses due to an infestation by a disease called “Witch’s Broom” which affected the crop yields considerably.

Considering herself to be a mother who is committed to her work, she opted to reenter commerce and is planning on selling gelatin treats, frozen pops and cold beverages in future and to do so needs to acquire a cooler to get the best possible profits and have a stable source of family income. Her only objective in working to the maximum possible is her two daughters that she plans to provide with a good education so that they will have a better life than what she had as a girl.

This is her 8th loan. She was punctual and responsible because it was about money that helped her very much in her short-term goals and she plans to continue being part of MFP. She is grateful to her communal bank fellow members for always being very responsible people because thanks to this they are a very solid group. She will use the 2,000 new soles to buy a cooler to start the gelatin and cold beverage business.
