Flora
Flora, 65, is a very noble, generous woman. She has four children; her oldest son lives abroad with his father. She lives with her other three, already independent, children in her own house.

Since she was very young she’s been working in informal fruit sales seeking wellbeing for her children since her husband’s salary is insufficient. She was very well known in her stand but sometimes she suffered when the municipal police would evict her for being an informal seller causing her to lose sales. Because of this, she gradually found a way to become associated with a fruit market and since then she’s been working more securely for the last 15 years and the profits made it possible for her to educate her children who are now professionals.

Her business now is much more dynamic because suppliers come to her stand and leave 300-400 cases of oranges or mandarins according to the season. Because of this Flora works with help from her niece to speed up sales. For her, the business is therapeutic because she feels happy and occupied taking care of customers and thinks that later on she’ll continue expanding it.

This is her 2nd loan with MFP and she promises to pay her installments punctually because she does not want to disappoint them because this contribution will allow her to continue working seeking progress.

Flora stocks up of fruit every two days so will use the requested loan to increase the number of crates of fruit to stock up on merchandise and meet the demand she has.

Flora, es una mujer muy bondadosa y noble, de 65 años. Tiene 4 hijos, el mayor vive con su papa en el extranjero. Ella, vive con los tres últimos ya independientes en su casa propia. Desde muy joven trabajó de manera informal en la venta de frutas, en busca de un bienestar para sus hijos, ya que el sueldo de su esposo no es suficiente. Era ya muy conocida en su puesto, pero a veces sufría por el desalojo de los policías municipales por ser vendedora informal y, eso le hacia perder sus ventas. Por ello poco a poco buscó y encontró asociarse en un mercado de frutas, desde entonces trabaja más segura durante 15 años, y con estas ganancias educó a sus hijos que ahora son profesionales. En la actualidad su negocio es mucho mas dinámico, ya que los proveedores van a su puesto y le dejan de 300 a 400 cajas de naranjas ó mandarinas de acorde a la temporada, por ello Flora trabaja con la ayuda de su sobrina para agilizar sus ventas. Para ella, su negocio es terapéutico, ya que se siente feliz y ocupada atendiendo a sus clientes, y piensa, que mas adelante, continuará ampliando su negocio. Es su segundo crédito que tiene con MFP, y promete pagar puntualmente sus cuotas, pues no quiere defraudarles, ya que este aporte le permitirá continuar trabajando en busca de su progreso. Flora, cada dos días se abastece de más frutas para su negocio, por ello con el crédito que solicita, incrementará más cajas de frutas, de esa manera podrá abastecer de mercadería y cumplir con la demanda que tiene.
