A loan of $200 helped to buy wood blocks and primary materials necessary to complete her customers' orders.

Rosmeri's story

Rosmeri is 24 years old and has a partner, Edwin, who is 32 years old. Both lead a harmonious coexistence and have, as the fruit of their love, their son Edwin, who is 6 years old. She has managed and worked together with her partner in their carpentry business for the last four years. The business started because the young couple was looking for a fixed income to support the family, because then Edwin was only working as a helper in other workshops. They decided later to become independent thanks to loans from MFP and their savings thereafter.

They consider their work an activity of family union. Rosmeri helps with the minor activities in the pair while Edwin is in charge of the main, required work. Working together in this way they have succeeded in converting their business in to their primary family income. However, sometimes delays in the arrival of their wooden blocks causes them to have to cancel certain orders.

In order to continue completing orders, they wish to continue investing in the purchase of blocks of wood for the fabrication of tables, chairs, beds, and more. In the future, Rosemeri wants to expand and open a grocery store parallel to the family business in order to grow economically; all of this is in thinking ahead for her son's future. This is her sixth loan with MFP. She considers the loans she receives to be an important work tool that must be treated with great responsibility. These 500 soles will complement her capital to buy blocks of wood and primary materials necessary to complete orders from her clients.
