Alejandrina
Alejandrina, 38 years old, is a strong-spirited and tenacious woman with a desire to get ahead. She lives with her partner, Rider, who works in river transport and is the father of her 3 children: Deysi, Garni and Celeste who are 16, 12 and 5 years old respectively. Together they live comfortably in their own home that they bought recently. Alejandrina sells basic essential groceries from a store which she has built in her home, where she serves customers -- mostly her neighbours -- with a pleasant and polite disposition. She also sells food in the evenings such as juanes (rice, chicken and egg wrapped in a 'bijao' leaf) and fried chicken among other items. For this purpose, she sets out a table in front of her house, which is frequented by customers who come for her great cookery. She started this as a small venture, selling in small quantities more than 14 years ago and now her children also help her out in this business.
She believes that her business is fairly profitable as she earns well from both of her businesses and they have pulled her through many difficult times. Before doing this, she had great financial difficulties as her husband often did not manage to earn enough; furthermore, she also wants to feel like a productive person and to support her husband in providing for the family. Now, having seen the results she has achieved with her business she wants to progress and to increase her stock in her shop.
This will be her second loan with MFP, and she is happy to know that she will have financial support to cement her plans. On the other hand, she likes her communal bank's work as they are supportive people with a desire to make progress.
With the requested amount of 1000NS, she will invest in buying basic essential groceries to stock her store and stay in favour with her customers, while seeking out lower prices for her volume purchases.
