Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is 37 years old. she is a humble and hard working woman. She lives in her own home with her husband Edson, who is 39, and their beloved daughter, who is 15. She wants to give her a better quality of life. Elizabeth's work is building tables, chairs and other furniture out of wood. She sends her products to the capital where they pay her a good price. She also sells on credit in stores where she has contracts. She started selling little by little and only to a few customers but over time she grew her market and now she has many more customers. She likes her activity because she thinks her work is getting results. She has been doing this activity for more than 5 years and thinks it is going well because she has good sales. Over time, she hopes to have a store where she can sell her own products. This will be loan number 2 with MFP and she is committed to making her payments on time. At this time, she will ask for 1000 soles to buy raw materials she will use to build tables, chairs and other furniture out of wood, because lately she has had more orders from her buyers.
