Jocelinda
Jocelinda, 26, lives with her parents and her sister Lisbet, 23, in their own house located in the town of Palcamayo, Tarma. With sweetness and charisma, Jocelinda says that at the age of 15 she learned to be a responsible woman. She began working in a bakery making and selling bread. In time she opened her own bakery and works there with her mother.

"Bakery work is at night, so we sleep very little. It's worth it." And if that were not enough, this selfless woman also works in agriculture, helping her parents growing spinach, carrots, lettuce, and other vegetables. What she likes most is helping her family, because her greatest desire is to see her sister fulfilled and her parents calm.

Now she wants to buy more merchandise for her bakery and acquire her own plot of land to be able to grow a larger quantity of vegetables. For this she will hire personnel to optimize these jobs.

This will be her third loan from MFP, so she gives her word that she will be punctual in making her monthly payments. She is happy about belonging to her communal bank, Patrón San Cristóbal, whose members are supportive and indicate the same goal: self-improvement.

When she receives the money, Jocelinda will be able to buy sacks of flour and other ingredients to make bread. She also will dedicate part of the money to buying organic fertilizer for her carrot crops.

Jocelinda de 26 años, vive con sus padres y su hermana Lisbet de 23 años, en su casa propia ubicada en la localidad de Palcamayo – Tarma. Con dulzura y carisma, Jocelinda cuenta que, desde los 15 años Jocelinda aprendió a ser una mujer responsable. Empezó trabajando en una panadería haciendo y vendiendo panes; con el tiempo abrió su propia panadería, ahí trabaja con su madre. “El trabajo en las panaderías es de noches, por eso dormimos pocas horas. Vale la pena”. Y como si fuera poco, está abnegada mujer también se dedica a la agricultura, ayudando a sus padres en las siembras de espinacas, zanahorias, lechugas, y otras hortalizas. Lo que más le gusta es ayudar a su familia, pues su mayor deseo es ver a su hermana realizada y a sus padres tranquilos. Ahora quiere comprar mayor mercadería para su panadería y adquirir su propio terreno y de esa manera poder cultivar mayor cantidad de hortalizas. Para ello contratará personal para optimizar estas labores. Éste sería su crédito número 3 que recibiría de MFP, por eso da su palabra de ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas mensuales. Está contenta de pertenecer a su banco comunal “Patrón San Cristóbal”, cuyos socios son solidarios y apuntan a un mismo fin: la superación. De recibir el dinero, Jocelinda podrá comprar sacos de harinas y otros insumos para preparar panes. Así también destinará una parte del dinero en la compra de abonos orgánicos para sus cultivos de zanahorias.
