Oswalda
Oswalda is 50 years old. She is separated and lives with her three children in her own home. She is very much a fighter and as a result she has managed, little by little, to build her own home.

Oswalda owns a store which is her sole source of income and, for that reason, hers is the store that opens earliest to the public. She gets up very early in the morning to go to the wholesale market in order to be able to stock her business with fresh fruit and vegetables as they are perishable foods for which she has a lot of demand. By mid morning she has no merchandise left and this makes her feel very satisfied and means that her work is very profitable.

In addition to this work, she also sells cakes and jellies (jell-o) which she makes herself. What she likes most about her business is chatting to her customers and also the fact that the provisions which she doesn't manage to sell she uses for her family's meals. She has been in this business for 6 years and the most difficult thing about her work is packing shopping bags since she suffers from lower back pain. In the future she is planning to add a second level to her house. This is her ninth loan from MFP and she pledges to be punctual in her repayments in order to avoid making things difficult for her community bank. She will use the loan that she is requesting to buy basic foodstuffs so that her store is stocked with a range of products which will please her customers.

Oswalda posee una tienda, siendo su única fuente de ingreso y por tal es la que más temprano abre para el público, debido a que madruga para ir al mercado mayoristas y poder abastecerse de verduras y frutas frescas para su negocio, ya que son alimentos no perecibles y de lo que tiene mucha demanda como el pan de cada día. A media mañana no le queda mercadería alguna, y eso le da mucha satisfacción, por lo que le resulta rentable su trabajo.
