Rosa
Rosa, 42, lives happily with her 48 year old husband, Anaclo, and their three daughters. Verónica, 23; Deysi, 19; and Ángela, 5, are their pride. They live together in their own comfortable house, which is located in a far away area in the central jungle of Perú.

For seven years she has been selling fruit like apples, bananas, oranges, watermelons, melons, peaches, passion fruit, and other dried fruits. She does this with help from her oldest daughter, Verónica. Every morning she opens the place and starts the business. What she likes best about selling fruit is that her daughters are at home with her. They consume what they sell, taking care of their nutrition. “By selling fruit I have been able to build my house, educate my children, pay the household expenses, and even dress myself. I am not able to complain about the earnings,” Rosa says as she summarizes why her business is very profitable.

In the future she plans to expand her business out to the patio of her house. She will stock it with a greater variety of fruit to satisfy her customers.

This is the fourth time that she has had a loan with MFP. She knows that she needs to pay punctually if she wants to continue progressing in order to meet her objectives. She will use the money from the loan to invest it well, buying more fruit to sell wholesale. Above all, she wants to buy grapes because of the demand there is for this product at the end of the year. That way she will be able to get greater earnings.
