Francisca
Francisca is a 44-year old woman who is a fighter that is persistent with her goals. She lives in a house that was willed to her by her parents and she wants most to get ahead in life. A salchipollo cart (meals made of fried chicken and noodles) is Francisca’s daily companion that she takes to sell prepared meals in the Bolognesi Plaza (an important plaza in the city of Juliaca).


She starts at 7 PM and gives appointments to eat the delicious salchipollos that she prepares for her clients. She enjoys cooking for her clients as she’s having fun doing it. She’s been running this business for 18-years and the most difficult part of the job has been walking the streets at night, sometimes in the freezing cold.


In the future, she longs to have a shop in the center of town where she can sell great salchipollo meals and services her clients better. This is the fifth loan that Francisca has taken with MFP. She knows that she’ll have to repay the debt on time as she doesn’t want to cause problems for the community bank. The bank has the support of all its members. With this loan of 2500 soles she plans to purchase a new salchipollo cart to earn better profits.

Francisca es una mujer de 44 años, muy luchadora y persistente en sus metas, vive en la casa que le cedieron sus padres y lo que más quiere es salir adelante. Una carretilla de salchipollo (comida al paso hecha a base de pollo frito y tallarines) es la compañera diaria de Francisca, quien sale todas las noches a vender la comida que prepara, vende en la Plaza Bolognesi (plaza importante de la ciudad de Juliaca) y a partir de las 7 de la noche los clientes se dan cita para comer el delicioso salchipollo que prepara. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es cocinar para sus clientes, ya que ella se divierte mucho haciéndolo. Lleva 18 años en este negocio y lo más difícil es permanecer gran parte de la noche en la calle, soportando el intenso frió. Para el futuro anhela tener una tienda en un lugar céntrico donde pueda vender con mayor comodidad su salchipollo y así atender mejor a sus clientes. Este es el quinto préstamo de Francisca con MFP, sabe que tiene que pagarlo a tiempo sino quiere causarle problemas a las socias de su banco comunal, donde es muy solidaria con las demás. Con los 2500 soles de préstamo planea comprar una nueva carretilla de salchipollo, para mejorar sus ingresos.
