Jessica
Jessica, 36 years old, is a hard working, persevering woman. Apart from being happy and friendly, she is separated from the father of her children. She lives together with her eight year old son, and is both mother and father to him, living in her own house. Jessica makes a living selling live chickens. For this she buys them from the poultry farmers who raise them and she takes them in cages to sell them by the river. She has to make short journeys by boat along the river, to reach the hamlets on the banks of the river, to sell them to the inhabitants of these places.

She has made a living in this business for the last eight years. She is well known by the inhabitants of the area who wait for her products, as she is the only one who comes. She likes her business as it allows her to receive an economic income as well as making journeys and visiting new places. As well as being profitable due to the price that she sells at in these areas. On the other hand, she doesn't like the fact that some of her chickens die on the journey which cause her some loss. But she is not discouraged by this and wishes to continue in her business and also extend it by taking other products with her, such as clothing to sell.

This will be her 14th loan with MFP. Therefore, she requests a small loan to be able to fulfil her objectives. Apart from this she is happy with her communal bank as she appreciates the help she is receiving to move forward with her business. With the requested amount of 2000 PEN she will invest in buying supplies such as clothing and chickens to take them to the hamlets along the banks of the river.

Jessica, de 36 años de edad, es una mujer trabajadora y empeñosa, además de ser alegre y amable, es separada del padre de sus hijos. Vive en compañía de su hijo de 8 años de edad, siendo ella padre y madre para él, habitando su propia casa. La actividad que realiza Jessica es la venta de pollos vivos, para eso los compra a los avicultores quienes crían estos pollos, y los lleva a vender en unas jaulas por el río, teniendo que realizar viajes cortos en bote por el río, llegando a los caseríos en las orillas del río, para venderlos a los lugareños o habitantes de ese lugar. Lleva realizando éste negocio desde hace 8 años llegando ser conocida por los lugareños de la zona quienes la esperan por sus productos a donde llega sola. Le gusta su negocio pues le permite contar con un ingreso económico, ademas de realizar viajes y conocer nuevos lugares, además de ser rentable por el precio que vende en esas zonas. Por lo contario, no le gusta cuando se le mueren algunas de sus pollos en el viaje lo que le ocasiona algunas perdidas, pero eso no la desanima y desea seguir en su negocio y ampliar llevando también otras mercaderías como ropa para venderlos. Este será el préstamo número 14 con la institución MFP, por tanto espera de un pequeño préstamo para que pueda cumplir con sus objetivos. Además de estar a gusto con banco comunal pues le agrada la ayuda que le están brindado para avanzar con su negocio. Con el monto solicitado de 2000 nuevos soles lo invertirá en la compra de mercadería como ropa y pollos para llevarlos por los caseríos en las riveras de los ríos.
