Rocio
Rocío, 25, shares her life with her husband, Joel, 28 and their three children; they all live together in their own house. She sells prepared meals in a stand she has near a bus stop. Her menu includes a variety of dishes like: grilled sausage with mayonnaise, stuffed potatoes, anticuchos (grilled, skewered beef heart).

Rocío is very happy with her work because it provides enough income to meet household expenses since her husband’s earnings as a laborer are often insufficient. She trusts that both will be able to make progress and she knows that they will if she works to bring extra income into the home.

Her greatest wish is to buy a stand in a busy market so that she can have more customers and increase sales.

This is her 1st loan with MFP and she pledges to repay in a timely fashion. She will use the requested funds to buy larger amounts of ingredients for her dishes as well as to remodel her stand so that it will be more comfortable for her customers.

Rocío tiene 25 años de edad, comparte su vida con esposo Joel de 28 y sus 3 hijos y juntos viven en su casa propia. El trabajo al que se dedica es la venta de comida en un puesto que tiene cerca a un paradero de buses, ofreciendo variedad de platillos como salchichas a la parrilla con mayonesa, papa rellenas, anticuchos. Rocío esta muy contenta con su trabajo, puesto que le da los ingresos necesarios para solventar los gastos de su hogar, ya que el sueldo de obrero de su esposo a veces no le es suficiente. Confía en que ambos puedan salir adelante y sabe que lo hará trabajando para llevar un ingreso extra a su hogar. Su mayor anhelo es comprar un puesto en algún mercado, que sea muy concurrido, para así ganar más clientes y aumentar sus ventas. Este es su primer crédito con MFP y se compromete a ser muy puntual con todos los pagos. Con el crédito que solicita, quiere comprar mayor cantidad de ingredientes para la preparación de sus platillos y además reestructurar su puesto de venta para que sea más cómodo para sus clientes.
