Delia
Delia is a hardworking and cheerful woman. She is 52 years old, single, and lives in her own home with her 15 year old daughter.


For the past two years, Delia has been selling ceviche (a traditional Peruvian dish prepared with a base of fish and citrus juice). Her vending stand is located outside of her house and she has the help of her daughter in preparing this dish. Many hands are required to slice the lemons and chop the onions, which are the most time-consuming tasks. However, Delia is already accustomed to working quickly because her customers are very demanding and she must sell a large number of servings in order to generate a good income. Delia hopes to open a restaurant in her home sometime in the future, so she is already making improvements. She hopes to increase her profits so that she can save enough money to make her dream a reality.


This is her first loan with MFP. Delia is happy to be working with the Institution and knows that she not have any problems with her payments as long as she works responsibly. The money she requested will be used to buy furniture, cooking utensils, and ingredients for making ceviche.

Delia es una mujer muy trabajadora y alegre de 52 años, es soltera y vive en su casa propia junto a su hija de 15 años de edad.
Desde hace 2 años se dedica a la venta de ceviche (platillo tradicional peruano, elaborado en base a pescado y limón). Ella tiene un puesto afuera de su casa y cuenta con la ayuda de su hija para la preparación de esta comida, pues se requiere de varias manos que corten los limones y piquen las cebollas, que es la labor más molesta. Sin embargo, ya se ha acostumbrado a trabajar con rapidez, pues sus clientes son muy exigentes y debe despachar a la mayor cantidad de porciones para generarse buenos ingresos.
Para el futuro, Delia ambiciona instalar un restaurante y está realizando algunas mejoras en su casa para implementarlo allí, por lo que necesita mejorar sus ganancias para poder ahorrar y hacer su sueño realidad.


Este es su primer préstamo con MFP y está muy contenta de trabajar con esta institución, ya que sabe que no tendrá inconvenientes con los pagos gracias a su gran responsabilidad. Con el dinero que solicita comprará algunos muebles, utensilios de cocina e ingredientes para el ceviche.
