Jhoselin
Jhoselin is 33 years old and the mother of three children. She and her partner live in their own home.


When we visited Jhoselin, we found out that her business selling candy went bankrupt two months ago. She sold her merchandise on credit, so she lacked the capital to keep her business afloat. In order to earn money to revive her business, she sells salchipollo (a dish that consists of potatoes, sausage, and fried chicken) in the evenings on the doorstep of her house. Depending on the size, each portion sells from 1.50 PEN to 3 PEN. Her daily profit ranges between 10-15 PEN. Her husband works for their neighbors as a farm laborer. With both of their incomes, they are able to cover their household expenses. Jhoselin aspires to have a candy shop full of sweets, but she knows more work is required to get to that point.


This is her first loan with MFP, so she commits to promptly repaying her Communal Bank. The money she requested will be used to buy candy and sodas to sell alongside her salchipollo dishes.

Jhoselin tiene 33 años, es madre de 3 hijos y vive en su casa propia con su pareja.
Cuando la visitamos la encontramos afligida porque hace dos meses su negocio de venta de golosinas quebró por dar al crédito, y por la falta de capital no pudiendo renovar a tiempo la mercadería. Mientras consiga el dinero para reflotar su negocio, por las tardes, viene dedicándose a la venta de comida (salchipollo: papas, salchicha y pollo frito) en la puerta de su casa. Cada porción la vende desde 1.50 hasta 3 soles, y diariamente gana entre 10 y 15 soles, con ese dinero puede aportar a los gastos de su casa, junto al trabajo de su esposo como jornalero de las chacras de sus vecinos.
Jhoselin aspira a tener una tienda llena de dulces, pero para ello sabe que tiene que trabajar muchísimo.

Este es su primer crédito con MFP, por lo que se compromete a pagar puntualmente sus cuotas a su banco comunal. Con el dinero que solicita comprará golosinas y gaseosas para vender como complementos de sus porciones de salchipapas.
