Francisca
48-year old Francisca is a hardworking woman who lives with her husband and three children in their own house. She sells food from a stall located five blocks away from her neighbourhood.

Every day she prepares different dishes such as fried fish, chanfainita (a local meat dish), chicken with rice, ocopa sauce (a Peruvian specialty maD. from chilis and peanuts), and other local soups which are requested by her customers. She makes the casseroles in her home, but the fish is fried at her stall located in the busiest market in the area.

Francisca’s customers visit her stall between 10am and 1pm, and she always serves them in a friendly manner. The parts of her business that most please her is when there is no food left over, and when she can see the profits start accumulating. In the future she plans to expand the business by selling picarones (a kind of doughnut) in the afternoons so that she can earn more money to pay for her children’s education.

This is Francisca’s third loan with Kiva partner MFP and she promises to pay back the money according to the schedule, as she has done before. She plans to use the loan to buy saucepans, different sized pots, and ingredients for her dishes.
