Dora's story

Dora, 46 years old, is a hardworking woman and very responsible. She is married to Leni and they have two children 25 and 23 years old respectively. She lives in her own house with her family fighting to get ahead.

Dora’s work consists of selling staples at retail prices, among which are rice, sugar, milk, bread, eggs, oil, vegetables and more. This business is located in her home and she’s there every day full time. She has been working in this field for eleven years and has been in business for more than twenty. She works alone and fortunately is doing very well. What she likes about her work is that she has time to carry out other activities that come along. Fortunately, it’s going well as she always has clients because of the variety of products that she offers and also because she is the only store in the neighborhood. She hopes to be able to continue advancing and for her business to grow.

This is the third loan through MFP. She is very grateful for the loan opportunity that is offered and for the financial support she needs to get ahead. She promises to make her monthly payments on time and to continue working with a lot of responsibility together with the members of the communal bank. With the amount requested of 1500 soles, she will buy merchandise to sell in her store including sweets, rice, sugar, bread, eggs, milk, oils, vegetables and more.
