Rosa
Rosa is sixty years old and a very hardworking, happy, and dynamic woman. She's married to Amaro, who no longer works due to his age, and who is the father of their three children: Cesar, 28 years old; Daniel, 27 years old (who's mentally handicapped); and Rosa, 23 years old. All live together in their own home.

She makes a living selling fruit juice. This begins at dawn when she goes to the market to purchase fruit which she buys wholesale. She's had this business for nine years and relies on her children's support in their free time. She likes what she does as it generates good earnings that allow her to pay for the household expenses and for her children's' education. On the contrary, what she doesn't like is the physical tiredness due to her age. For this reason she rests for up to two days and then returns to her business. She has plans to build a pig farm in order to give her husband an occupation and mutually support one another with the earnings. She also sells beauty products from catalogs.

This is her eighth loan with the MFP institution and she feels happy for the opportunity to have a loan with which to progress her business. Apart from feeling good about her communal bank she considers them nice and responsible people.

With the requested total of 4000 nuevos soles she will invest in the purchase of grower's wholesale fruit, the construction of a pig farm, and the purchase of a pregnant sow valued at 2000 nuevos soles.
