A loan of $325 helped to buy beverages to sell in the restaurant.

Carmen's story

Carmen is 34 years old and lives with her husband. She has enjoyed cooking since she was young, and after she got married she began her business selling food, which she has done for four years now. She is very content preparing her dishes, which are delicious and in high demand. Her restaurant is housed in a rented space but her sales are good. Food sales are profitable, providing profits enough for savings, since she can reduce her food expenses. However it is difficult to fulfill orders when there are lots of clients, which is why she has to work quickly. This is her first loan with MFP. Carmen will begin selling beverages to complement her dishes for which she will invest 700 soles and, with the remainder, expand and improve her locale.
