Karina
Karina, aged 26, is a single mother. Gabriela, aged 3, is her only daughter. Karina lives with her parents in their home, which is located in the district of Tarma.

Karina is a cheerful and charismatic girl. She works doing various things, mainly raising chickens and guinea-pigs. She sells 15 to 20 guinea-pigs a month in the city of Lima, as this rodent's meat is very much in demand in the capital city. She does business in the same way with chickens, but these she sells in the city of Tarma. She has installed several pens at her home where she feeds her animals.

Meanwhile, during the day Karina works at a bakery, selling cakes and tarts. Here she receives a monthly salary which allows her to cover her daily expenses.

One of her preoccupations has been to survive as a single mother, but it's now been three years that she has been working on her own and it's been going well. She feels happy with her performance, and trusts that in this way she will be able to provide her young daughter with love and necessary support.

Down the line, she hopes to expand her pens and raise more guinea-pigs and chickens, as this will ensure that her business is profitable. This will be her 13th loan obtained through MFP, and she agrees to be punctual in making her monthly repayments. She belongs to the “GS-006” communal bank, and is happy to be working with striving women like herself.

On receiving the money, she will be able to invest in the purchase of more cages for raising chickens, and some more grown guinea-pigs for breeding and selling.

Karina de 26 años es una madre soltera. Gabriela de 3 años, es su única hija. Karina vive con su padres, en la casa de ellos, ubicada en el distrito de Tarma. Karina es una chica jovial y carismática. Se dedica a varias actividades, principalmente a la cría de gallinas y cuyes. Al mes vende de 15 a 20 cuyes en la ciudad de Lima, ya que la carne de este roedor es muy solicitada por la ciudad capital. De la misma manera negocia con las gallinas, pero estas las vende en la misma ciudad de Tarma.
En su casa, tiene instalado varios corrales donde alimenta a sus animales.
Mientras tanto, durante el día, Karina trabaja en una pastelería, vendiendo queques y tortas. Ahí recibe un sueldo mensual que le permite solventar sus gastos diarios.
Una de sus preocupaciones fue, desenvolverse como madre soltera, pero ya son 3 años que trabaja sola y bien. Se siente contenta con su desempeño y confía que así podrá brindarle a su pequeña hija el amor y apoyo necesarios.
Más adelante piensa ampliar sus corrales y criar más cuyes y gallinas, por que asegura que el negocio es rentable. Éste sería su crédito número 13 que obtendrá de MFP, por eso se compromete a ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas mensuales. Pertenece al banco comunal “GS-006” y se siente contenta de trabajar con mujeres luchadoras como ella.
De recibir el dinero podrá invertir en la compra de más jaulas para criar gallinas, y otros cuyes grandes para reproducirlos y venderlos.
