Blanca is 40 years old. She lives i nher own house with her husband, Jose, who is 42. He works as a driver and they have two small children. For three years, this enterprising woman has worked as a merchant of turrones (traditional Peruvian sweets). This activity is only popular from September through November, which are the months that the "Lord of the Miracles" is remembered (a tradition linked to the Liman Christ). During the other months she makes sandwiches and french fries with sausage outside of her house in her sandwich cart that she takes out of her house every day. Although she only does the work from 6 p.m. until 11 p.m., she says that it gives her good income. Since she is an enterprising woman she plans on expanding her sandwich selling business in the future so her patrons will be more comfortable. That is why she wants to buy tables and chairs. This is the seventh loan that she has had with MFP and she promises to make her payments on time. She doesn't want to look bad to the people who made the money possible that will allow her to continue working and seeking progress. Blanca is planning on investing the loan she has asked for in buying the ingredients she needs to continue preparing her dishes. She also wants to improve her business with tables and chairs.

Blanca, de 40 años, vive en su casa que es propia al lado de su esposo José de 42 años, quien se desempeña como chofer, y sus dos pequeños hijos. Desde hace tres años, esta emprendedora mujer se desempeña como comerciante de turrones (dulces típicos peruanos), pero esta actividad tiene acogida solo desde el mes de setiembre hasta noviembre, que son los meses que se recuerda al “Señor de los milagros” (tradición ligada al Jesucristo limeño). Pero durante el resto de meses ella prepara sanguches y salchipapas afuera de su casa y esta labor la desempeña en su carrito sanguchero que saca todos los días afuera de su casa, aunque solo realiza su labor desde las 6 de la tarde hasta las 11 de la noche dice que le brinda buenas ganancias. Como es una mujer emprendedora para el futuro tiene planeado ampliar su negocio de venta de sanguches con mayor comodidad para sus comensales, es por esta razón que quiere comprar mesas y sillas. Es el sétimo crédito que tiene con MFP y promete pagar puntualmente sus cuotas, pues no quiere quedar mal con las personas que hicieron posible el dinero que le permitirá continuar trabajando en busca del progreso. Blanca tiene planeado invertir el crédito solicitado en la compra de ingredientes que necesita para continuar preparando sus platillos; además quiere mejorar su negocio con algunas mesas y sillas.
