Rosmery's story

Rosmery, 28 years old, is a good and kind woman, is married and has three children of 8, 4, and 2 years old. She lives along with her husband and children in her own home where every day they share the happiness of progressing and improving their living conditions.

Rosmery’s work consists of food sales. She goes to the market very early in search of the best ingredients since she likes to provide the best to her customers. Once she has all of the ingredients selected by her magic hands, she begins to prepare the dishes that she will offer to her distinguished clientele. When she finishes her preparations, she brings it all to the city’s sawmill where she begins to sell. She works only by request since her exquisite flavor means that she has many customers.

She began selling one year ago since she had the need to contribute economically to the home. She is very happy with her work because she generates her own source of work. She does it alone and it gives her time to relax peacefully and provides her the necessary time with her family. She has many plans for her future. Among those is to establish a restaurant in order to not have to be going to distant places to sell, but she knows that for this she needs to count on the economic capital necessary. For this she will work hard to put together and consolidate her project.

This is loan number 3 with MFP. She is very excited and thankful for the economic backing that they offer her to continue with her plans. She does not want to quit paying because of lack of money, and it is because of this that she promises to be very punctual and above all very responsible. She is very happy to continue with this group since they are very thoughtful and kind.

With the amount requested of 1800 soles, she will buy ingredients and consumables in order to continue with her work, such as rice, condiments, meats, and others, as well as some vegetables and non-perishable products.
