Liliana
Liliana, 29, is a hardworking and dedicated woman, in addition to being cheerful and sociable. She is in a committed relationship with Jhonny who is a fisherman, with whom she lives along with her two children of 10 and 3 years of age, her sister-in-law and two nephews, inhabiting her own home. The business Liliana has is selling the fish that her partner fishes in the area's lakes such as Yarinacocha Lake. For this purpose they have a small boat in which her partner goes out to do the work of fishing, so that she may then sell it wholesale among the merchants in the area markets. Another portion of it she sells retail at a fish stand she has at the port.

She relies only upon her partner's support in this business, which she has had for ten years. She likes her business as it has generated many satisfactions both personal and financial. With the income she has been able to pay the costs of running a household as well as purchase household furniture and fittings along with other things they wanted. She comments in addition that with the good earnings she receives, above all in times of scarcity, she has plans to expand her business and make it grow so as to bring in more income.

This will be her second loan with the MFP institution. She is grateful for the financial support she has been receiving to move forward in her business. She is also pleased with her communal bank since so far she has not had any problems and sees that they are good people. With the requested sum of 1,000 Peruvian soles she plans to invest in the purchase of materials for fishing, such as traps, and improve her fish stand, specifically the roof which has been affected by the constant rain.
