Lucila
Lucila, 44, is a hard working mother living in her own home, with her husband and their children. Every day, she gets up very early in the morning to prepare maca (a root vegetable), soy, and quinoa, together with snacks like bread with cheese. She sells these food products as a street vendor to the many passersby, and she has been well received by them. Lucila's selling location is the intercity bus stop, it's a very strategic location where she has been able to make good profits. She feels very happy because her business is very profitable, though it is sometimes hard to have to be up very early to have the breakfasts ready on time. She strives to do her business with kindness, and she depends on this to complete the sales that lead to her profits. What she likes most about her business is that she knows many people, with whom she keeps in constant communication. In the future, Lucila intends to set up an additional food business, and so improve their income and lifestyle.

This is her 18th credit with MFP and she will continue working to repay punctually, because she wants to be able to take out new loans. She is a very responsible member in the meetings her community bank organizes. With the requested loan, she will buy sacks of goods so that she's not lacking anything when preparing these foods
