Francisca
Francisca, age 43, is married and has three school age children. They live together in Quimbiri, which is located in the edge of the Peruvian jungle. That is where she has her own house, which is made of wood. She recalls that it cost her a lot of sacrifice and knowing how to take advantage of the opportunities that presented themselves in order to get where she is today.

Ever since she was very young she longed to have her own store, and she got it. But, her adjustment was not so fast. She had few sales because she did not have experience in giving her customers good service. Now, with the experience she has, she feels more confident. Even her customers are more satisfied with the products she sells and the good service that she gives them.

She generally works on her own, but during vacation times she gets help from her children. She sells in her own neighborhood. Her future plan is to expand her business so that she can keep her oldest customers. That way she will be able to improve her quality of life.

This is her second loan with MFP. She promises to continue making her payments on time. Also, she gets along well with her communal bank because it provides many benefits. She will use the requested loan to buy basic needs merchandise in order to supply her store.

Francisca, de 43 años de edad, está casada y tienen tres hijos en etapa escolar. Juntos residen en la localidad de Quimbiri, ubicada en la ceja de la selva peruana, donde tiene su propia casa a base de madera. Recuerda que para llegar a lo que tiene ahora le costó mucho sacrificio y el saber aprovechar las oportunidades que se le presentaba, ya que desde muy joven anhelaba tener su propia tienda, y lo logró, pero su adaptación no fue tan rápido, ya que obtenía pocas ventas, debido a que no tenía experiencia en la buena atención a sus clientes. Hoy con la experiencia que tiene, se siente más en confianza, incluso sus clientes están más que satisfechos por el producto que los ofrece y de la buena atención que los brinda hacia ellos. Por lo general trabaja por cuenta propia, pero en tiempo de vacaciones recibe la ayuda de sus hijos, y su punto de venta lo realiza en su mismo barrio de su localidad. Su plan a futuro es ampliar su tienda con el propósito de que pueda mantener a sus clientes más antiguos, de esa manera pueda mejorar su calidad de vida. Este es su segundo crédito con MFP, por el cual se compromete a seguir cumpliendo con su cronograma de pagos, además está conforme con su banco comunal, ya que le brinda muchos beneficios. Con el crédito que solicita lo piensa invertir en la compra de mercadería de primera necesidad, con el propósito de suministrar su tienda.
