Sylvia
Sylvia is a 40 year old single mother. She lives with her 3 children, who are all high school students. She has been selling beverages (soft drinks and beer) from home for 3 years. Part of her house is sectioned off with public Internet booths for rent. She finds her work entertaining. Her business has been quite profitable because she sells frozen drinks that are consumed daily because of the intense heat present in the region. The Internet booth rentals have also provided a steady source of income.


Sylvia is a very active woman who now wants to start another business selling wood. She is currently on her 7th loan with MFP; she will use 300 soles to purchase drinks and, with the remainder, acquire a motorbike to be used for her wood sales business. She enjoys working with her communal bank, which was started by a group of her friends. They have demonstrated great responsibility and organization.

Sylvia tiene 40 años, es madre soltera y vive con sus 3 hijos que cursan estudios secundarios. Desde hace 3 años se dedica a vender bebidas (gaseosas y cervezas) en su casa y a la vez alquila una parte de su vivienda donde implementaron un negocio de cabinas públicas de Internet. Lo que le gusta de su labor es que la mantienen entretenida, además que le es muy rentable porque las bebidas heladas son productos que se consumen a diario debido al intenso calor de la región donde vive; por otro lado, el alquiler de su local es un dinero que le ingresa de forma segura. Sylvia es una mujer muy activa, ya que ahora también quiere incursionar en el negocio de la venta de madera. Este es su 7mo préstamo con MFP y le gusta trabajar con su banco comunal porque desde que se inició con los que son sus compañeros, siempre han demostraron responsabilidad y mucha organización. Con el dinero que solicita comprará 300 soles en bebidas y con lo que resta adquirirá una moto para movilizarse en cuanto empiece con el negocio de la venta de madera.
