Aurelia
Aurelia is 62 years old and is married to Elías, with whom she has 6 children. Only the youngest still lives with them; he is 19 years old. Aurelia, her husband and their son live together in their own home in the San Ramón District of Chanchamayo Province. Tireless and full of energy, Aurelia says that she started her businesses as a young woman. Now that she is 62 years old, she makes her living with a small business run out of her home. There, she sells sweets, sodas, foodstuffs and cold beverages.
In the afternoons, she makes sandwiches and kebabs. She has been operating this business for about 30 years, and it is going very well for her. As with all businesses, there are always times when sales go down, for example in the months of January and February. But when classes start up again, the concurrence of people increases, and with that her sales increase.
Elías is a man who worked hard in his younger years. He now receives retirement and can live peacefully. That is how this family lives. Aurelia hopes to expand her business, to purchase more merchandise to supply her demanding clientele. This is the first time Aurelia will access a loan from MFP. She promises to be punctual in the re-payment of her loan. She also says that she feels happy to belong to her recent communal bank “Puente Centenario” (100-year Old Bridge).
With the money, Aurelia will be able to acquire more merchandise, such as sodas, sweets, boxes or crates of fruit and sandwich-maknig supplies.

Aurelia de 62 años está casada con Elías con quien tiene 6 hijos, pero solo vive con el menor de ellos que tiene 19 años de edad. Ella, su esposo y su hijo viven juntos en una casa propia en el distrito San Ramón, provincia de Chanchamayo. Incansable y llena de energías, Aurelia comenta que inició sus actividades económicas desde jovencita. Ahora que ya cuenta con 62 años se dedica a atender su pequeño negocio que instaló en su propia casa, ahí vende golosinas, gaseosas, comestibles y bebidas heladas.
En las tardes prepara sándwich y anticuchos. Lleva como 30 años en esta actividad y le va muy bien. Como en todo negocio siempre tiene días donde las ventas disminuyen, por ejemplo en los meses de enero y febrero, pero cuando las clases se inician, la concurrencia de gente aumenta y por lo tanto sus ventas aumentan.
Elías es un hombre que trabajó arduamente en sus años de joven. Ahora recibe su jubilación y puede vivir tranquilo. Así convive esta familia, que anhela ampliar su negocio, comprando más mercadería para abastecer a su exigente clientela. Sería la primera vez que Aurelia accedería a un préstamo de MFP, se compromete a ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas. También menciona sentirse contenta de pertenecer a su reciente banco comunal “Puente centenario”.
Con el dinero podrá adquirir más mercadería como: gaseosas, golosinas, cajones o jabas de frutas e insumos para preparar los sándwich.
