Enma
Enma is 45 years old and lives in the town of San Pedro de Cajas. She is noted as being a very unassuming and hard-working woman. She lives in her own home together with her husband Glicer and her two children who she loves very much.

Enma's business is located in the craft center in town. She is convinced that the variety of products she offers increases her sales. For this reason, she takes a lot of care not to repeat designs. In addition, she makes good income from selling her own creations. "My husband helps me in making my tapestries and blankets" Enma says "while I knit with wooden needles". In this way, Enma is able to pay for her children's education. She has been in this business for 20 years and she considers the most difficult part of her work to be transporting her handicrafts to her sales stall as she lives a very long way away. However, she is comforted by the fact that she is putting together some money in order to be able to buy her own vehicle as she also receives a percentage of .400 to .500 Peruvian soles from charging people in her area for electricity.

In the future, Enma hopes to put together the money she needs to set up a store where she can sell her items more peacefully. She belongs to the 'Mujeres al Futuro' community bank and this is her fourth loan from MFP. She hopes to receive a small loan so that she can achieve her goals. She is a very well-liked member of her community bank because she is a responsible person and she demonstrates this by making her loan repayments on time.

With your support, Enma will invest the money that she has requested in buying merchandise such as: tapestries, sweaters and other products for her handicrafts store.
