Lourdes
Lourdes is 68, and is a nice, friendly, and hard-working woman. For much of her life she has done various types of work to provide her children with a good education and quality of life. Now her children have professions and are independent. In the meantime she lives in her own house, with her husband and one of her daughters.

Lourdes sells meals, which she does on the porch of her house. She has her daughter's help, with whom she has been working in this business for almost two years now. During this time she has learned many things; from how to treat customers to how to have very good seasoning that makes grilled fish delicious and juicy; and to offer her diners juanes (pieces of meat with rice, wrapped in banana leaves) that are the most delicious in the area where she lives.

She likes her work since she can enjoy herself at the same time as she generates income. In addition, she really likes working alongside her daughter, who is her main support in the business. The business is located in a very busy avenue, so she always has customers to whom she offers the best. They go away delighted with the friendliness of the service, and with how affordable the prices are. She wishes to continue working, and later on, continue expanding her business.

This will be her second loan with MFP, so she is hoping for your help so that she can continue toward her goals. Moreover, she promises to once again make her installment payments on time, and demonstrate, as on earlier occasions, that she is a very good member. In this way she will repay the support that they provide her in her communal bank, where everyone is very responsible and supportive.

With the 1,500 nuevos soles applied for, she will buy ingredients, supplies, and a few cooking utensils in order to continue doing her work. In addition, she will add a few tables and chairs to be able to give more comfort to her customers when she is serving them.
