Carmen's story

Having a family fills Carmen with happiness. Living with her husband and daughter in a very cozy house was the dream that she had hoped to accomplish for a long time. She studied when she was younger and was very dedicated. She finished her studies as a pharmacy technician and worked in various pharmacies in her city. She met a pharmaceutical chemist who taught her various essential concepts throughout her studies and with time, fate united them, and together they searched for a way to have something of their own. They started a pharamacy in their home. For thirteen years, they have run their business, and thanks to their abilities, it has become one of the most frequented pharmacies among those who are guaranteed efficient service from this sweet couple. They hope to make the most of being accepted by the public and start a location in another part of the city, making this health service a lasting business for their family. Carmen has worked with MFP for three years, and this is her fourth loan. She hopes to continue working in an organized manner with the members that make up her communal bank. She will invest the 1,000 soles that she is requesting in purchasing necessary medications to supply her business.
