Grethel
Grethel is a very hard-working woman. She is happily married to the father of their six children; four of whom are adult and live apart, the other two and a granddaughter live with her in a densely populated neighborhood of Lima.

For the last three years she has sold costume jewelry at the entrance to the local market. Initially it was very difficult to set herself up in this area because municipal inspectors would confiscate her merchandise because there are no permits for street vending. However, her persistence bore fruit and now she does well; besides, she's happy because she can help her husband, who is a police officer, meet household expenses. At the same time, she is teaching the business to her daughter, who is a single mother, so that she will learn how to work. In the future, she wants to buy a stand inside the market because it is very profitable and she will be able to provide her children with an adecuate education.

This is her third loan with MFP and she reconfirms her commitment to continue being very punctual with her repayments, as she has been until now. Also, she comments that she is proud to belong to her group because she has very responsible fellow members.

She will use the requested funds to buy hair accessories and similar items.

Grethel es una mujer muy laboriosa, está felizmente casada con el padre de sus 6 hijos, 4 de ellos son mayores y viven aparte. Los otros 2 y su nieta viven en su casa en un barrio populoso de la ciudad de Lima.

Desde hace 3 años trabaja en la puerta del mercado de su localidad vendiendo bisutería. Inicialmente le costó mucho ubicarse en esta zona porque los inspectores municipales le quitaban su mercadería porque no hay permiso para la venta ambulante. Pero afloró su persistencia y ahora le va bien, además está muy contenta porque con esas ganancias ayuda a su esposo quien es policía, en cubrir los gastos del hogar. A su vez, a su hija que madre soltera le viene enseñando el negocio para que aprenda su forma de trabajar. En adelante, quiere comprar un puesto dentro del mercado, porque le es muy rentable y así podrá brindar la educación adecuada a sus hijos.

Este te su doceavo préstamo con MFP, donde ratifica su compromiso de seguir siendo muy puntual en sus pagos, como hasta ahora. Asimismo comenta que está orgullosa de pertenecer a su grupo, pues tiene compañeras muy responsables. El dinero que solicita lo invertirá en el incremento de accesorios para el cabello y otros artículos de ese tipo.
