Gredel's story

Gredel, 42, is a good, kind, cheerful woman married to Kelin; they have two children who are 23 and 21 years old. She lives in her own house where she shares her days with her two children and her husband with whom she worked much to improve their quality of life and so that they would have no unmet needs.

Gredel’s work consists in selling various products. Among the things she sells are beauty products, perfume, cosmetics and more; she also sells seasonal clothes that she brings from other cities to sell to her girlfriends, neighbors, family members and coworkers on credit. She’s been doing this for more than 20 years and is doing very well. In addition to this work, she’s also employed as a teacher at a local school which gives her potential customers and while doing her job she’s able to sell more.

She started this activity when she needed to pay for her schooling since back then she was still a student and needed a source of income. She gradually made progress until she graduated and was able to also work in her profession. But even so, she continued with her commercial work because it produces good profits. She has many future plans and hopes to continue working and generating income for her home.

This is MFP loan #3 and she’s grateful to the people who are making this financing possible that she needs to be able to reach her objectives. She will use the requested 2,500 soles to buy beauty products, cosmetics and perfume to sell and she’ll also buy some articles of clothing to offer her customers.
