Zulema's story

Zulema, 64, is a hard-working, kind, supportive woman who lives in her own house with her only daughter, who is 29 years old. Zulema runs a restaurant and serves breakfast and menu items such as chicken and noodles, chicken stew, spicy meat, etc. Her business is set up in her home, where she attends to her customers cordially, winning over their loyalty. On weekends she sells roast chicken which is very popular because of its good flavor. For over 20 years she has been in this business and her daughter is the one who helps out when she can, attending to customers.

She likes her work because it is a constant source of income and covers basic expenses and it is comfortable to be able to work out of her own home. This is her fourth loan through the MFP institution, so she is counting on your support to carry out her plans. She is comfortable with her communal bank because she feels it is a united, supportive group.

She plans to use the 1,500 PEN to buy the necessary ingredients for her food preparation, such as rice, sugar, oil and other items. Her aim is to buy in bulk at lower prices.
