Edith
Edith, 47, is a hardworking and dedicated woman. She lives with Emilio and their three children, who are 14, 16, and 20 years old, in a house that they own. They were able to purchase the house with a lot of effort.

Edith works selling necessity items in a general store located in her home. She started her business with very little merchandise that she was able to buy with money she had saved. Later, with a lot of effort and dedication, she became well known and expanded her store. She has had this business for 20 years. Her children help her serve her customers, who are mostly her neighbors. The thing she likes best about her business is being able to socialize and make new friends with whom she can exchange ideas. In addition to the income she earns that helps with household expenses, her husband works as a mototaxi driver. However, some customers insist on payment on credit, but she denies them because they do not pay punctually.

She has plans to expand her store, both in space and in the diversity of products offered. This will be her 24th loan with MFP, and she hopes to continue working together so that she can achieve her goals, as with her previous loans. She feels comfortable with her community bank group since she considers the members to be responsible and supportive people.

With the loan requested, she will purchase necessities to stock her store so that she can have more options for her customers.

Edith, de 47 años de edad, es una mujer, trabajador y muy dedicada. Vive con Emilio y sus tres hijos de 20, 16 y 14 años, instalados en una casa que es de su propiedad, que lograron comprar con mucho esfuerzo. Edith se dedica a la venta de productos de primera necesidad, para eso cuenta con una bodega que abrió en su casa, comenzando con muy poca mercadería que logró comprar gracias a un pequeño capital que tenía ahorrado, luego con mucho esfuerzo y dedicación logró hacerse conocida y ampliar su negocio. Lleva dedicada a ese negocio desde hace 20 años, contando con el apoyo de sus hijos para atender a los clientes, que en su mayoría son sus propios vecinos. Lo que le gusta de su actividad es el poder socializarse, logrando hacer nuevas amistades, con los cuales puede intercambiar ideas; además del ingreso económico que le genera y puede apoyar con los gastos del hogar a su pareja que se dedica al servicio de mototaxi. Si embargo, los clientes le insisten en la venta a crédito, por lo que niega debido a la impuntualidad de pago. Así mismo tiene planes de ampliar su bodega, en espacio y diversidad de productos. Este será el préstamo número 24 con la institución MFP, por ello espera seguir contando con su colaboración para que pueda concretar sus planes como en créditos anteriores. Además de sentirse cómoda con su grupo de su banco comunal ya que considera a sus miembros ser personas responsables y solidarias. Con el monto solicitado, lo invertirá en la compra de productos en general para surtir su bodega, y así tener más acogida y preferencia de sus clientes.
