Nieves
Nieves is 44 years old and is a charasmatic and affable woman. She lives with her partner Pablo with whom she has 1 child, 12 years old, in her own house in the city of Merced. Nieves learns quickly. She learned the business helping her sister-in-law who sells meat. Thus Nieves starts her work from 4 in the afternoon. For this she buys poultry such as hens, chickens and ducks which benefit from being plucked. "I work alone. Once I've finished plucking and eviscerating the poultry I put them in the freezer for distribution the next day," she explains. For this work, she goes twice a week to the city of Huancayo where she gets poultry at a better price. "I pay 12 soles a kilo but sell it for 19 or 20 doles. It's good money," she says.

With the passing of time and the continuity of her business, Nieves hopes to rent and fit out a kiosk in the city oval so there will be no need to deliver her product straight to her customers hands. This will be her first loan with MFP so she agrees to be punctual with her repayments. "Mujeres al Exito" is the name of her communal bank and she is very exicted at belonging to the group. On receiving the loan she will invest it in the purchase of poultry such as: hens, ducks and chickens and as demand grows with the Christmas season she will also buy turkeys to continue her business.

Nieves de 44 años, es una mujer carismática y afable. Vive con su pareja, Pablo, con quien tiene un hijo de 12 años en una casa propia en la ciudad de La Merced. Nieves asimila rápidamente. El negocio que tiene lo aprende ayudando a su cuñada quien se dedica a la venta de carne.
De esa manera, Nieves inicia sus labores desde las 4 de la tarde. Para ello compra aves de corral como: gallinas, pollos y patos, los que beneficia y despluma.
“Trabajo sola, una vez que terminó de desplumar y desviscerar a los animales los meto a la congeladora para repartirlos al día siguiente”, explica. Para este negocio, viaja 2 veces a la semana a la ciudad de Huancayo, de donde trae las aves a menor precio.
“Cuando compro el kilo me sale a 12 soles, pero lo vendo a 19 o 20 soles. Si se gana bien”, comenta.
Con el pasar de los años y la continuidad de su negocio, Nieves espera alquilar e instalar un kiosco en el óvalo de la ciudad, así ya no tendrá que llevar su producto a las manos de sus clientes. Éste sería su primer préstamo de MFP, por eso se compromete a ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas. “Mujeres al éxito”, es el nombre de su banco comunal y se siente muy entusiasmada de pertenecerlo. De recibir el dinero del crédito, lo invertirá en la compra de aves de corral como: gallinas, patos y pollos; y como la demanda sube en fiestas navideñas, también adquirirá pavos, para continuar con su negocio.
