Veronica
29-year-old Verónica is a selfless mother. She separated from her partner three years ago and now lives with her 6-year-old daughter at her mother's house in the town of La Merced. Verónica works very hard. She runs a food business from her mother's house. In the morning, her mother is in charge of selling breakfasts and lunches, while she sells food in the afternoon. "I sell chicken broth, salchipapas (fried potatoes with hot dog), salchipollos (fried potatoes with chicken) and hamburgers, but the biggest seller is the chicken broth. I sell each plate for 4, 5 or 6 soles".
Besides that, on weekends, she sets up a booth near a monument in her town, since it is a place crowded with both pedestrians and drivers. Therefore, she works Monday through Sunday, but this does not prevent her from taking care of her daughter, because she is an exemplary mother. On the weekends she gets help from a girl whom she pays at the end of each day. This way she provides faster service and gets higher profits from her sales.
Verónica believes that the appearance of her improvised booth works against her. She would like to regularize her business and own a more appropriate venue. "In time, I will open my own store. I just have to keep on working", she concludes. Verónica is enthusiastic, because this would be her first loan with MFP, thanks to your help. For that reason she reports that she is punctual with her monthly repayments. By getting the money she will be able to purchase a new awning for her booth. She will also purchase supplies to prepare her food.

Verónica de 29 años de edad, es una madre abnegada. Hace 3 años se separó de su pareja. Ahora ella vive con su hija de 6 años en la casa de su madre en la ciudad de La Merced. Verónica trabaja duro y parejo. En la casa de su madre tiene un negocio de comidas. Por las mañanas su mamá se encarga de vender desayunos y almuerzos. Mientras que ella, expende alimentos a partir de la tarde. “Vendo caldo de gallina, salchipapas, salchipollos y hamburguesas, pero lo que sale más son los caldos de gallina. Cada plato lo vendo a 4. 5 y 6 soles”.
Además, los fines de semana, instala un puesto en el óvalo de su ciudad, por ser un lugar muy concurrido por peatones y conductores. De esa manera trabaja de lunes a domingo, pero esto no impide que descuide a su hija, pues es una madre ejemplar. En el trabajo de fines de semana, recibe la ayuda de una chica a quién paga diario. Así agiliza su servicio y por ende obtiene mayores ingresos de sus ventas.
Verónica considera un punto en contra, el aspecto de su puesto improvisado. Le gustaría formalizar su negocio y tener un local más apropiado. “Con el tiempo abriré mi local propio, solo tengo que seguir trabajando”, finaliza. Verónica está entusiasmada, por que éste sería su primer préstamo de MFP gracias a su ayuda, por tal razón comenta ser puntual en el pago de sus cuotas mensuales.
De recibir el dinero, ella podrá adquirir un nuevo toldo para su puesto de caldos. Así también comprará suministros para la preparación de sus alimentos.
