Lucía
Lucía is 40 years old and lives with her three children in her own house, which is located in the town of San Pedro de Saño.

She has worked making bricks in her mini-factory for 13 years. In order to do so, she rents pieces of land that have clay soil, which is the main raw material needed to make her bricks. With her siblings' help, she delivers to the customers who order from her, according to production. She also hires several workers, whose manpower helps her make large quantities of bricks, counted by the thousands. Over all these years of work, she has seen her business develop. It has allowed her to support her children, and that is why she wants to continue in this line of work.

This is her 22nd loan with MFP. She is very happy to know she has financial support, since they know she is responsible with her payments. She also enjoys belonging to her communal bank because she knows all the members and they are all responsible and very supportive people.

Lucía will invest the money she is requesting in paying rent for a new piece of land, which has a good layer of clay soil, and also in purchasing sawdust.

Lucía tiene 40 años, vive con sus 3 hijos, en su casa propia, ubicada en la localidad de San Pedro de Saño.

Desde hace 13 años se dedica a la elaboración de ladrillos en su mini fábrica, para lo cual arrienda terrenos de suelo arcilloso, que es la materia prima fundamental en la elaboración de sus ladrillos. Con ayuda de sus hermanos reparte a los clientes que le solicitan, de acuerdo a la producción. También contrata la mano de obra de varios obreros que le ayudan a fabricar los ladrillos en cantidades grandes, contados por millares. En todos estos años de trabajo ha visto el progreso de su negocio, lo que le ha permitido sostener a sus hijos, por tal motivo desea continuar con este trabajo.

Este es su crédito número 22 con MFP, está muy contenta de saber que tiene un apoyo financiero, ya que conocen que es responsable en sus pagos. Además le agrada ser parte de su banco comunal porque todos sus integrantes son personas que conoce, responsables y muy solidarias.

El dinero que solicita Lucía lo invertirá en el pago del arrendamiento de una nueva área de terreno que posee una buena capa de suelo arcilloso y también en la compra de aserrín.
