Victoria
Victoria lives with her daughters in the house her parents left her. She has been doing embroidery by hand for three years. She began this at the invitation of one of her friends who taught her this trade, and now she works independently in the comfort of her home so she can take care of her house and her daughters. She also grows alfalfa to sell wholesale. For this reason, she does not have a fixed schedule, but she is very regular about doing her embroidery because the complexity of the work and the thickness of the embroidery on the cloth make one project take up to a month. She ends up with a beautiful traditional outfit that her customers admire, and that is finally paid for in cash.

The most profitable time for her business is during the traditional feast of Santiago (St. James), which is celebrated a lot in her area. Victoria wants to increase her production of embroidered skirts and to hire people to help her make them. This is her fifth loan with MFP. She has always stood out in her communal bank for being punctual with her payments, and she has earned the trust of the other members in all the opportunities she has had to receive loans. She will invest the money she is asking for in the purchase of thread and cloth. At the same time she will buy seeds and sacks of organic fertilizer to sow alfalfa on some land she acquired recently.

Victoria vive en compañía de sus hijas en la asa que sus padres la dejaron. Se dedica a realizar bordados artesanales desde hace 3 años, se inicio por invitación de una de sus amigas que la enseñó este oficio, ahora trabaja independientemente en la comodidad de su casa para poder atender su hogar y sus hijas. Paralelamente cultiva alfalfa para venderla al por mayor. Por tal razón, no tiene un horario fijo, de trabajo, pero es muy constante en la realización de sus bordados ya que por la complejidad del trabajo y el grosor del bordado en la tela este trabajo dura hasta un mes de realizado. Como resultado termina en una bella prenda típica que causa admiración en sus clientes y finalmente son comprados al contado. La época más rentable en su negocio es cuando están en plena época de festividades típicas llamadas la fiesta del Santiago que se celebra mucho por su zona. Desea crecer en su producción de faldas bordadas y contratar personas para ayudarla en esta confección. Es su quinto crédito que tiene con MFP, siempre se ha destacado en su grupo solidario por ser puntual en sus pagos y se ha ganado la confianza de los demás integrantes, en todas estas oportunidades de crédito que ha tenido. Con el dinero que solicita, lo invertirá en la compra de hilos y telas, a la vez comprará semillas y sacos de abono para sembrar alfalfa en algunos terrenos que adquirió recientemente.
