Fanny's story

Fanny is a single woman, who at her 25 years of age fights to improve her life in the future. She lives in a room she rented when she arrived in Puno from her native Desaguadero (Puno District) and she hopes to forge a good life for her. Since she was a little girl he liked cooking, she was very happy playing with the tools of her mother and she loved watching her cook for all her family. At present, she has a store of kitchen tools in the center of the city, she brings the tools from Desaguadero and sells them at very good price to her clients. She has had her business for 5 years and what she likes more is to choose the novelty products that she brings to sell to Puno since he likes seeing her clients having a big variety to choose from. What she doesn't like is having to travel constantly to acquire the tools, since she gets very tired from the trip. Fanny wishes to have a bigger store in the fututre and to turn into one of the most important of the city.This is her second loan with MFP (Kiva's partner) and she is ready to repay all of her quotas on time, since she doesn't want to affect the other partners of her communal bank, because she knows that they trust her. Fanny will invest the loan in buying more merchandise to better supply her kitchen tools store.
