Marcela
Marcela, 44, lives in her own home with her 3 children. One of her children works and the other two are minors. Together, with a lot of effort, they try to get ahead. She has always thought of providing the best for her children, and for this reason when she was left alone she did not hesitate to start to work the best way that she could, which was to cook. For the last 5 years she has been selling a variety of fast food dishes such as salchipapas (hot dog with fried potatoes) and papas rellenas (fried potato with ground meat filling), that are sought after because they are delicious and cheap. Her working day begins at 4 in the afternoon when she puts a table with benches in an area outside her house, and her working hours usually extend until midnight when there is no food left to offer. She is very pleased, because since her children help her to serve the customers she gets considerable daily earnings that allow her to get ahead. In addition, as she is a very enterprising woman, she plans in the future to set up a grocery store in her house because she wants to have a business that is more stable and tranquil. This is the 5th loan that she has taken with MFP, and she pledges to make her payments on time, since she does not want to disappoint the people who have made this loan possible which will allow her to continue to work and make progress. Marcela will use the loan she requests to buy ingredients that she needs at wholesale, such as rice, cooking oil, and sugar, so that she can offer a variety of dishes to her customers. In this way she hopes to improve her earnings.
