Marcevid
Marcevid, who is 36 years old, is a very friendly and hard-working woman. She lives in her own home with her husband, 40-year old Cayo, and their 3 dear children. She would like to offer her children a better quality of life. Marcevid makes her living with a business selling regional fruit. She leaves early every morning with her tricycle to sell her fruit on the streets of Pucallpa. Among the fruits she sells are aguaje (purple palm tree fruit), ungurahui (ungurahui palm fruit), chapo (bananas), and others. She offers very affordable prices, which is why she has a lot of customers. She has been in this business for one year, but has expressed that it is going very well for her. In addition to her sales, Marcevid arranges her own schedule, so she doesn't neglect her home or her business. Having to walk is very tiring for her, but she knows that she must do it to sell more fruit. With time, she hopes to have a sales stall in a city market where she could sell her fruit more peacefully. Marcevid is asking all of you for help so she can advance her business. This is her second loan with MFP. She is very happy to have obtained it and is prepared to punctually re-pay her loan. Marcevid is a well-liked member of her communal bank because she is always concerned with the well being of the group. With the thousand nuevos soles (USD $375) that she has requested, Marcevid will purchase more regional fruit in order to increase the quantity of merchandise that she normally sells.
