Alicia

Alicia is a struggling wife and a hardworking mother. Since her partner fell ill she has been taking care of him and of their children even if she is not well either, having suffered a stroke 2 months ago. But she pulled through and started work again to keep up with the household expenses. Alicia sells clothing, but she also sells Picarones (squash and sweet potato donuts) from her house. The location is very good given the public transportaiton that runs through and brings by many people. She works her business every day from 3pm to 7pm. She cannot stay too long because there are bandits in the neighbourhood wanting to harm her. All of this doesn't stop her, but instead she is even more driven to realize her dreams of setting up a restaurant in her house, or in a locale with greater security. Having her ninth loan with MFP (Kiva Field Partner) is an indicator of her responsibility and the good working conditions of her group, the driving force for her development. The 2000 soles will be used to purchase utensils and furniture to better serve her clients.

Alicia es una esposa abnegada y madre trabajadora, desde que su pareja se enfermó ha estado pendiente de él y de sus hijos, a pesar de sentirse mal, ya que hace 2 meses sufrió un derrame cerebral. Pero pudo salir adelante y retomó su trabajo, ya que tienen que mantener sola las necesidades de su casa. Alicia vende ropa, pero también picarones (postre típico peruano) en la esquina de su casa, lugar que gracias a la presencia de vehículos de transporte público, concentra a muchas personas, lo cual es beneficioso para ella. Esta actividad la realiza todos los días, desde las 3 de la tarde hasta las 7 de la noche, pues no puede quedarse mucho tiempo por la presencia de delincuentes que suelen molestarla, pero esto no la desanima, sino que la alienta a agilizar sus metas de instalar un puesto de comida en su casa o en un lugar con mayor seguridad. Tener su noveno crédito con MFP es un indicador de la responsabilidad y orden dentro de su grupo, lo cual han sido determinante para su desarrollo. Los 2000 soles que solicita serán para adquirir algunos utensilios y muebles para atender mejor a sus clientes.
