Renata's story

Renata, who is 21 years old, is a good and entrepreneurial young woman. She is still single and has no children. She lives in her parents' home along with her brother. They all work together everyday to be able to have a better quality of life. Renata works preparing and selling fast food. She has a "broasteria" (rotisserie restaurant) where she works together with her parents. Renata gets up very early in the morning and goes with her mother to the market. They look for the freshest and most nutritious meats and products to work with. They always offer their distinguished customers the best. At home, in the afternoons, they prepare what they need and have everything ready by 6:00pm, which is when they start selling their delicious and well-prepared plates of "pollo broaster" (rotisserie chicken). The business has been running for eight years, but Renata is now in charge. She has been working there for about two years. The "broasteria" was previously run by her parents. With the income that the business generates, Renata can cover the costs of Veterinary School. A lot of the time, Renata's schooling expenses don't leave enough money for other activities. The business is going well, and they earn a good enough income to surpass their previous difficulties. Renata is now very optimistic in everything she does. Her longer-term goal is to expand her business, but for now she just hopes to establish herself and progress little by little. This is Renata's sixth loan with MFP. As such, she is grateful to those who make her loan possible and allow her to continue working toward her objectives. In addition, she is very committed to punctually complying with her repayment plan, just like she did with her previous loans. Renata is very happy to belong to her communal bank, as all of the members are good, friendly and supportive people. With the requested sum of S/.3500 ($1375 USD), Renata will purchase tables, chairs and materials to improve the condition of her store front, like fixing up the ceiling and the floor. In addition, she will stock up on non-perishable goods to have them stored away as reserves and for times when prices are high.
