Ketilut's story

Ketilut, age 36, is an enterprising woman who enjoys her work. She has three children (ages 18, 10, and 2) with her partner Angel. Ketilut and her entire family live in a house that they built after many years of work, effort, and savings. She loves every member of her family, so she does everything she can to help them move forward. Ketilut’s business involves selling groceries and basic necessities. Every day, she opens the doors of her business during the early hours so that she can attend to her customers who arrive at her establishment in need of some products. They are confident that they will find what they need. Her store is the best-stocked establishment in the neighborhood, so her customers have no hesitation in buying from her. In addition, her customers enjoy the quality of the product brands that she offers and the friendliness expressed through each of her kind words. Her customers are always appreciative of these qualities. Ketilut has been in business for 10 years and always receives assistance from her partner and children.

What she enjoys most about her work is being able to converse with her customers and begin each day with a smile. She considers the most difficult part to be waking up early so that she can attend to her store while taking her care of her baby. Even when she feels tired, Ketilut knows that she has a job to do. She expects to grow her business going forward so that she can generate more income.

This is her 18th loan with MFP. For this reason, she is grateful to everyone who made this loan possible so that she can continue her work and achieve better results. Once again, she promises to complete her payments on time just as she did with her previous loans. Ketilut also appreciates being part of her Communal Bank because the other members are responsible and supportive people. The loan she requested in the amount of 2,000 PEN will be used to buy a large quantity of products to keep her grocery store in operation such as rice, sugar, eggs, noodles, vegetables, fruits, and other items.
