Angela
Angela, 53, is married to Juan, with whom she has three children, but lives with only one of them. This family lives in their own house in the district of San Ramón, province of Chanchamayo.

Angela is enterprising. Thanks to her effort she managed to set up a small business in her own house. She began ten years ago. Now her store is more stocked and with more products. "It is going well for me. What sells most are the groceries and the meat, principally chicken," she mentions.

For his part, Juan works in construction jobs. In this way he contributes income for the daily family expenses. One of his problems was the financial problem when his children were in school. Now that they already left home or they work independently, his life is more calm. Even so, Angela works in her store and watches so that the household necessities are never lacking.

This will be her twelfth loan from MFP, and she is committed to being punctual in making her payments. She belongs to Las Heliconias Communal Bank, whose members, women, are close and supportive.

She will invest the money in buying groceries such as bags of rice and sugar, cans of oil, canned goods, and cans of milk to sell in her store.

Angela de 53 años de edad, está casada con Juan con quien tiene 3 hijos, pero vive solo con uno de ellos. Esta familia habita una casa propia en el distrito de San Ramón, provincia de Chanchamayo. Angela es emprendedora, gracias a su empeño pudo instalar un pequeño negocio en su propia casa. Empezó hace 10 años, ahora su establecimiento está más surtido y con mayores productos. “Me va bien, lo que más se vende son los abarrotes y las carnes, principalmente la de pollo”, menciona. Por su parte, Juan se dedica a las labores de albañilería, de esa manera aporta ingresos para el gasto diario de la familia. Uno de sus inconvenientes fue el problema económico, cuando sus hijos se encontraban en etapas escolares. Ahora que ellos ya dejaron la casa o se desempeñan independientemente, su vida es más tranquila. Aún así, Angela trabaja en su bodega y esta pendiente que los productos de primera necesidad nunca falten. Éste sería su préstamo número 12 que obtendría de MFP, por eso se compromete a ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Las Heliconias” y sus mujeres integrantes son unidas y solidarias. Invertirá el dinero en la compra de abarrotes como sacos de arroz, de azúcar, bidones de aceite, latas de conservas y latas de leche para expenderlos en su bodega.
