Alicia
Alicia is 54 years old; she lives in her own home with her partner, Osvaldo, who is 55 years old and their two young children. Each day they work hard to get ahead in life. This enterprising woman works selling foodstuffs and office supplies in a store that she made out a room in her home. Alicia is very happy since her neighbors prefer to buy from her since she treats her customers with kindness and she offers her products at good prices. What she does not like is that she has to spend a lot of time at home so as to not neglect her business although sometimes her family helps her take care of the customers. For the future she wants to improve her store as she wants to give better service to her customers. This is her seventh loan with MFP (Kiva’s field partner) Alicia promises to pay her loan quotas on time since she doesn’t want to deceive the people who have made possible this loan that will allow her to continue working toward her progress. Alicia has planned to use the loan to buy various grocery products as well as office supplies since school time is approaching and she wants to meet the majority of her customers’ needs.

Alicia, de 54 años, vive en su casa que es propia al lado de su pareja Osvaldo de 55 años y de sus dos 2 jóvenes hijos; juntos se esfuerzan cada día por salir adelante. Esta emprendedora mujer se dedica a la venta de comestibles y útiles de escritorio en una tienda que habilitó en una pieza de su casa. Esta muy satisfecha pues sus vecinos prefieren comprarle pues su trato es muy amable y ofrece sus productos a buenos precios, además las ganancias que obtiene son buenas y puede apoyar a su pareja en los gastos del hogar. Lo que no le gusta es que debe permanecer bastante tiempo en su casa para no descuidar el negocio, aunque hay veces que sus familiares la apoyan en la atención hacia los clientes. Para el futuro tiene planeado mejorar las instalaciones de su local, pues quiere ofrecer un mejor servicio a sus compradores. Es el séptimo crédito que tiene con MFP y promete pagar sus cuotas puntualmente, pues no quiere quedar mal con las personas que hicieron posible este aporte que le permitirá continuar trabajando en busca del progreso. Alicia tiene planeado invertir el crédito solicitado en la compra de cantidad de mercadería en productos comestibles, así como útiles pues esta cercana la campaña escolar y quiere cumplir con la mayoría de los pedidos de sus clientes.
