Laureana
Laureana is 46 years old and lives in her own home with her husband Fernando, 46, and their 3 minor children of the 4 total they have. For more than 5 years she has engaged in different activities to get ahead. In the summer she sells raspadillas (ice with fruit flavors) in an industrial park in her district and in winter she sells breakfasts, white cancha [a type of Andean popcorn made from a special kind of corn called maíz chulpe] and stuffed potatoes. Since this hard-working mother is the most known and friendly in her neighborhood, she has many customers, making her business successful and profitable. As a result, she was able to educate her children and teach them to work. Her second daughter liked this business so Laureana bought her her own cart and she now sells like her mother. Thing are going well for her. Laureana is happy and now wants to buy a cart for her other daughter, who is currently helping her, and this way she won't have to worry about her.

This is her first loan with MFP and she is committed to making all her payments as she doesn't want to let down the other members of her communal bank who invited her to take part in this loan. They says that " they have placed their trust in her and they are sure that she will make her payments on time." With the loan she is requesting she will buy another cart so that her daughter can work and generate her own income.
