A loan of $775 helped to buy groceries and sweets.

Maria's story

María, 46, is married to Eugenio, 54, and they have three children. They live in a rented, well-built house. She opened a grocery store shortly after leaving her demanding job working as a restaurant cook. The business was very small at first, but over the years she has been able to build it by selling products such as cakes, sodas, and other foodstuffs. Her daughter helps her at times, which lets her spend time with her family.

In order to keep her business stocked and service her customers, she is applying for a loan to buy merchandise. Maria's long-term goal is to grow her business and add gaming machines. This will be her second loan cycle with MFP. She believes this will be a great opportunity to grow her business. She needs 2,000 nuevos soles to buy grains, sodas, cookies, jams, noodles, and sweets.
