Graciela
Graciela is 19 years old. She is a very pleasant, kind, and hardworking young woman. She is single and does not have any children. She lives with her parents and her four siblings, whom she helps with their studies and with some of the difficulties they have which are typical of their age.

Graciela makes a living selling meals. She begins her work very early, going first to the market in search of the best ingredients and the choicest vegetables, then going home to prepare various meals that she can offer her customers. She then goes off to the city’s sawmills, where she has a contract with some of the workers to bring them meals daily. Graciela has only been in business for three months; she previously had a bodega, but she had to change her economic activity because it was not bringing in much profit. She now works happily with her aunt and her mother, who help her with everything.

At first Graciela had numerous doubts and difficulties, but thanks to help from her family she was able to overcome these problems. She is now very happy, since her work is easier with all of their help. She currently serves an average of 30 pre-ordered meals per day, and prepares about 20 more meals as backup. Graciela would like to set up a restaurant eventually, which would allow her to continue working with her family and to improve their lives together. This will be her first loan with MFP, and she hopes that working with the organization will help her continue toward her goals. She promises to be a responsible customer and is very happy to belong to her communal bank, since the other members bring much confidence and solidarity. Graciela will use the amount she is asking for, 2000 soles, to purchase materials, ingredients, and supplies so that she can continue with her work, since demand has increased and she wants to meet all of her customers’ needs.
