Jackeline's story

Jackeline is 29 years old and a very friendly and hardworking person. She lives in a home of her own, along with her husband, 30 year old Victor, and her two children, seven year old Hugo, and 3 year old Virginia, to whom they want to provide a better quality of life.

Jackeline’s business is fast food, specifically broasted chicken, beer, soft drinks, and ice. Her stall is located in her home and she takes many cases of beer and soft drinks every weekend to replace the ones she has sold during the week.

She is a very happy and charismatic saleswoman. This is why her customers prefer to buy from her. She recalls when she was first starting out, she only sold just a small amount, but she managed to get more customers and increase her sales.

Things are going very well for her and she generates a double income for having two activities, so she is able to provide better living conditions to her family. What she likes the most is that she can talk to customers and make her working time go by faster. She considers the most difficult part of her work to be having to transport the heavy cases of beer. In the future she hopes to be able to set up a store where she can provide better service.

This will be her eighth loan through MFP and she hopes for your cooperation so she can continue her goals. She is committed to making her payments on time, as with the previous ones. She also likes being a part of the communal bank because all of its members are responsible and united. She will use the 3,500 PEN to buy ingredients so that she can continue her business. She will also buy many cases of soft drinks and beer to have on hand to sell over these dates.
