Mery
Mery is 44 years old. She lives with her husband and their five children. Two are already grown, Angie, 23 years old, and Grace, 20. Three are younger: Mery, 11, Jhonny, 9, and Antuannete, 5 years old. They all live in her home made from simple materials and located in the popular Ventanilla district in Lima.


She has a small shop in her home and has returned to it after three years, during which time she had to leave it aside. The convenience of having this business in her own home inspired her to continue with it, since it has been very profitable and can sustain her family. Mery can work in the comfort of her home and, at the same time, care for her younger children. Her husband, Oscar, also cheerfully helps with the work.


The hardest time, according to her means “run around more,” is midday, since she has to attend to her customers on their lunch hour and also to her family. Mery attends the store almost the entire day and on weekends the hours can extend until midnight.


In the future, she thinks she will update the facilities in her business, stock it with more merchandise and eventually sell food from outside her home.


She has already had 4 loans with MFP, and she has always liked collaborating with her communal bank, but for matters of time, she is requesting an individual loan this time. Half of the money that she requests will be used to purchase more merchandise, while the other half will be used to update her shop in order to have a good appearance for her customers.

Mery tiene 44 años, vive con su esposo y sus 5 hijos; 2 mayores de edad, Angie de 23 y Grace de 20; y 3 menores, Mery de 11, Jhonny de 9 y Antuannete de 5 años. Todos viven en su casa propia que es de material noble y está ubicada en el populoso distrito de Ventanilla, en Lima.
Ella tiene una pequeña bodega en su casa y desde hace tres años la volvió a establecer, ya que durante un tiempo la dejó al olvido. La comodidad de este negocio en su hogar la animó a continuar con él, ya que le era muy rentable para lograr sostener a su familia. Mery peude trabajar en la comodidad de su casa y a la vez atender a sus hijos menores y en estas labores la ayuda amablemente su esposo Oscar.

El momento difícil y en el que según ella “corretea más”, es al mediodía, ya que atender a los clientes se le junta con la hora de almuerzo en la que debe atender a su familia también. Mery atiende en su bodega casi el día entero y los fines de semana el horario de atención puede llegar a extenderse hasta la medianoche.

Para el futuro piensa arreglar las instalaciones de su negocio, abastecerlo con más mercadería y hasta llegar a vender comida afuera de su casa.

Ya ha tenido 4 créditos a través de MFP y le ha gustado siempre colaborar con su banco comunal, pero por cuestiones de tiempo esta vez pide un préstamo individual. La mitad del dinero que solicita lo destinará a comprar más mercadería, mientras la otra mitad será para arreglar su local, esto para darle una mejor presentación ante sus clientes.
