Agripina
Agripina, age 60, is a generous and good-natured woman. She is separated from her spouse and lives in her own home with two adult children. Agripina has six children in total. This enterprising mother has worked hard all of her life in various businesses, but for the past ten years, she has established herself in a very busy place. Starting at 4pm, she sells coffee and warm pancakes until 11pm. Her business is doing very well, but when 5pm arrives, there are times when she runs out of supplies. Lately she has been working with her niece as her assistant and sometimes with her daughter. By working in this manner, Agripina has been able to provide her children with an education and build part of her home, which makes her feel like she has accomplished something. She enjoys her business because it is profitable and allows her to be independent. For this reason, Agripina continues to work so that she can add another room to her house which she will make available for rent. This will help generate additional income.


She is receiving her eleventh loan from MFP. Agripina promises to complete her payments on time because she does not want to disappoint two of her fellow group members with whom she works with all the time. These funds will allow her to continue working and making progress. Each week, Agripina invests in merchandise such as flour, oil, sugar, and tanks of gas for her business. For this reason, she will use this loan to buy these products so that she can continue working.

Agripina, de 60 años, es una mujer generosa y buena. Es separada, vive en su casa propia en compañía de sus 2 hijos mayores, de los 6 que tiene en total. Esta emprendedora madre de familia, toda su vida ha trabajado arduamente en diversos negocios, pero hace 10 años se estableció en un lugar muy concurrido. En donde a partir de las 4 de la tarde vende café y panqueques calientes hasta 11 de la noche. En este negocio le va muy bien, pero llegada las 5 de la tarde sola no se abastece, por ello últimamente trabaja con la ayuda de su sobrina y otras veces de su hija. Trabajando de esta manera ha logrado educar a sus hijos y construir una parte de su casa, por lo que se siente realizada. El negocio que realiza le gusta mucho; por lo que es independiente y muy rentable. Por ello, se aferra a su trabajo y de ese modo logre construir un cuarto más en su casa y lo alquile, para captar otros ingresos a su economía. Es el 11avo crédito que tiene con MFP, y promete pagar puntualmente sus cuotas, pues no quiere defraudar a sus dos compañeras de crédito con quienes trabaja todo este tiempo, ya que este aporte le permite continuar trabajando en busca de su progreso. Agripina, cada fin de semana invierte en mercadería como harina, aceite, azúcar y balones de gas para su negocio, por ello con el crédito que solicita, comprará estas mercaderías para que continúe trabajando.
