Virginia
Virginia, who is 51 years old, lives with her partner, and they have two children. They live together in the town of Quimbiri, located on the edge of the Peruvian jungle, where they have their own house. Virginia sells typical food and Creole food, a business that she learned from her parents, and now the seasoning with which she prepares her food delights her customers. She remembers that to set up her business, she had to put out flyers, and that was when people began to go to her little, unknown corner, and since then, her most demanding customers come every day to taste the variety of dishes that she prepares. Every day she tries to improve, with the goal of satisfying and giving better service to her customers. She generally works with an assistant from 7 in the morning until 8 at night. Her plan for the future is to increase her business, adding a soda fountain, in order to give her restaurant a new style. This is her fourth loan with MFP, and she promises to make her payments faithfully. Furthermore, she is grateful to her community bank group for the solidarity that exists in each one of its members. With the loan that she is applying for, she will invest in a set of chairs and tables, to serve more customers.

Virginia, de 51 años de edad, convive con su pareja y tienen dos hijos. Juntos residen en la localidad de Quimbiri, ubicada en la ceja de la selva peruana, donde tienen su propia casa. Virginia se dedica en la venta de comida típica y criolla, actividad que lo aprendió de sus padres, y ahora la sazón con la que prepara su comida es del deleite de sus clientes. Recuerda que para posicionar su negocio, tuvo que repartir volantes, entonces fue cuando la gente comenzó a ir al rinconcito desconocido, y desde ahí sus clientes más exigentes asisten todos los días a saborear la variedad de platos que prepara. Cada día que pasa trata de mejorar, con el fin de satisfacer y dar un mejor servicio a sus clientes. Generalmente trabaja en compañía de una ayudante, desde 7:00 de la mañana hasta las 8:00 de la noche. Su plan a futuro es ampliar su negocio, insertando una fuente de soda, para así darle un nuevo estilo a su restaurante. Este es su cuarto crédito con MFP, por el cual asegura cumplir fielmente con sus pagos, además agradece a su grupo comunal, por la solidaridad que existe en cada uno de sus socios. Con el crédito que solicita, invertirá en la compra de un juego de sillas y mesas, para recibir mayor capacidad de clientela.
