Evila's story

Evila, 32, is a young, hard-working woman. She lives with Augusto, the father of her 5 children. She lives in her own house with her family and her mother.

She works hard, but the one thing she desires most is to give the best quality of life and the financial stability that she can to her children.

Evila works as a fish saleswoman. Her business hours begin early in the morning. She goes to the fisherman's port in the city. There, she gets the fish that have the highest market price. She sells the fish in bulk. However, in order to sell everything, she has to work very hard to attract customers because she says there is a lot of competition.

She starts work at 4:00 in the morning and finishes at 7:00 or 8:00 in the morning. Later, she goes home to rest and fulfill her role as a mother. She has more than 5 years of experience in this business. She works alone and says that her will to do good things and generate income for her family are her main motivation for trying to get ahead. She likes the freedom that this business gives her because she can enjoy herself in the afternoons by playing or doing sports by her family's side.

She hopes to continue working to continue growing her business. This is the 3rd loan with the group MFP. She has always been a good member of the group, and they like her a lot because she is responsible and supportive. She appreciates those who gave her the loan so she can continue to grow her business.

She is convinced that she will continue to be punctual and will pay her installments on time, like she has on previous loans up until now.

The amount she is requesting (1000 Soles) will be invested in buying the biggest and best species of fish.
