Mardonia
Mardonia, 36, is very attentive and hard-working. She lives in her mother, Alejandrina’s, 66, house. She cares for her mother, her two sisters and two nieces that also live with her. She has sold groceries for the last 7 years in a locale her parents gave her.

Her store is her neighbors’ favorite because of the kindness she shows to those who come to her store. In conjunction with her store, she also farms; she grows corn, pea, potato and barley on her own farmlands. Thanks to help from field hands, she still has this commercial activity.

Grocery sales have been a profitable endeavor which has produced enough for her to meet basic expenses. She hopes to enlarge her store later on to sell more products that are in high demand by her customers. In the future, she’d like to have a commercial location that will allow for higher profits.

This is her 8th loan with MFP which she hopes will help her consolidate her plans. In addition, as a member of a communal group, she has learned to value the effort which each member places into repaying each installment on time; this is why she likes to work with them so much.

She will use the 3000 new soles to buy stock items for her store as well as a sack of pea seed and 5 sacks of manure to continue with her farming activity.

Mardonia tiene 36 años, es muy laboriosa y atenta, vive en casa de su mamá, Alejandrina de 66 años, a quien cuida, al igual que sus 4 hermanas y dos sobrinas que viven con ella también. Lleva 7 años dedicados a la venta de productos comestibles, en un espacio que sus padres le cedieron. Es así que se dedica a esta actividad, siendo su tienda la preferida de sus vecinos, pues su manera tan amable de atender a las personas que le visitan su tienda, hace que gane la atención de ellos. Paralelamente a su trabajo, se dedica también a la siembra maíz, alverja, papa y cebada, cultivados en terrenos propios que tiene y gracias a la ayuda de operarios, es que aún conserva esta actividad.
De esta manera la venta de comestibles le ha sido rentable, permitiéndole cubrir sus gastos, por lo que espera mas adelante ampliar su tienda para vender más productos que son muy solicitados por sus clientes. En un futuro desea tener un local comercial, que le permitan dar más utilidades. Este es su octavo crédito con MFP, por lo que espera concretar sus planes. Además como integrante de su grupo comunal, ha aprendido a valorar el esfuerzo que emprende cada uno de sus compañeros para efectuar puntualmente cada pago, es por eso que le agrada laborar a lado de ellos. Con los tres mil nuevos soles que solicita, comprará productos para abastecer su tienda, asimismo desea comprar una bolsa de semilla de alverja y 5 sacos de abono para continuar con su actividad agrícola.
