Suny's story

Suny is 21 years old. She is a friendly, good and very responsible woman. She lives together with her partner, with whom she has a 7-year-old son. She lives in a house of her own, which she built together with her spouse as the result of a lot of work. Suny's work is selling fuel, both wholesale and retail. She has set up her business on a corner that has a lot of traffic, both of heavy vehicles and light vehicles such as motorcycles and moto-taxis. Her work provides her with a good income, and she feels great peace of mind doing this work. She has done it for 2 years, with the help of her partner, and thanks to the good quality of her fuel and her agreeable service, she has been able to build up a good customer base. She likes her work very much, and she is glad to see that her customers leave very happy and drivers travel safely in their vehicles. She works during the mornings, while in the evenings she returns home to carry out the tasks of a homemaker, while her partner continues providing the service. This is her loan number 2 with MFP, and she is very happy to know that people exist who provide her financial support, which will permit her to be more tranquil and to advance with her plans for her business. She is also committed to making her payments punctually, and above all to working more closely with the members of her communal bank, who have a strong sense of solidarity. With the amount she is requesting, 1000 soles, she will buy a greater quantity of fuel to continue selling it.
