Hortencia
Hortencia, 60, has 7 children, 5 of whom are adults and live away from home, and 2 who are minors and still live with her and her husband in their still-unifinished house.

For the last 20 years she has sold beauty products while her husband has worked farming their farmlands. Together, they earn enough to meet basic family needs. Every day, after noon, Hortencia walks the long distances from house to house collecting her payments due and offering her products, catalgue in hand, for sale. She enjoys what she does very much and has very responsible customers which motivates her to continue with her work. However, her dream for the future is to sell clothes, since her customers have requested this, but she currently does not have a proper place to store clothing without it being damaged.

This is her 5th loan with MFP and she pledges to continue working with the same degree of honesty and responsibility as she has to date. She is happy to be part of a communal bank because all her fellow-members are very responsible people.

She will use the funds requested to buy a display case to keep and display her wares at home without them getting dusty.

Hortencia tiene 60 años, es madre de 7 hijos, 5 de ellos son mayores y viven fuera y los 2 menores viven con ella y su esposo en su casa que está, aun, a medio construir.

Desde hace 20 años se dedica a la venta de productos de belleza, mientras su esposo trabaja en sus campos de cultivo; juntos reúnen el dinero necesario para cubrir los gastos familiares. Diariamente, después del medio día, es cuando Hortencia camina largos tramos de casa en casa realizando sus cobranzas y ofreciendo sus productos con sus catálogos en mano. A ella le gusta lo hace y tiene clientes muy responsables, lo cual la motiva a seguir con su trabajo. Sin embargo, su deseo a futuro es vender ropa, ya que sus clientes se lo han pedido, pero por el momento no cuenta con un ambiente donde pueda guardar las prendas sin que sufran deterioro.

Este es su quinto crédito con MFP, por lo que se compromete a seguir trabajando con la misma honestidad y responsabilidad como hasta ahora. Asimismo, está feliz de integrar un banco comunal, ya que todas sus compañeras son personas muy responsables. Con el dinero que ahora solicita comprará una vitrina donde pueda guardar y exhibir sus productos en su casa, sin que se empolven.
