Leilita
Leilita is 64 years of age and is married to Raúl, who is a fisherman and father to their five children. She lives with her husband and 29-year-old son, as her other children are adults and independent.


Leilita works selling cold drinks, and she has a refrigerator which she bought with the help of her husband. She started five years ago buying small quantities of a single brand, and put a notice on the door of her house to advertise her business. Over time, she became well-known in her neighborhood. She has now increased and varied her stock of products by buying larger quantities, and to date has run her business herself.


Leilita thinks that her business is profitable as she has a lot of demand because the area has a very hot climate. She likes her job, as it allows her to work at home and gives her financial income, as well as free time to carry out other activities. What she doesn’t like, however, is when it rains continuously, as this lowers her sales. This doesn’t put her off though, and she continues with her business, as she knows that it doesn’t incur losses and she has regular customers who buy her products on a regular basis.


This is Leilita’s third loan with the MFP institution, and she hopes to meet her goals. She also says that she feels happy with her communal bank, as she knows her colleagues and thinks that they are responsible people. She has requested 1,000 nuevos soles, which she will use to buy a larger volume of sodas at lower prices, looking for a variety of flavors and brands to satisfy her customers’ tastes.

Leilita tiene 64 años, está casada con Raúl, quien se dedica a la pesca y es el padre de sus cinco hijos. Vive en compañía de su esposo y su hijo de 29 años, que aún es soltero, ya que sus otros hijos son mayores de edad e independientes.
Su negocio es la venta de bebidas heladas, para eso cuenta con una refrigeradora que compró con la ayuda de su esposo. Empezando hace 5 años con la compra en pequeñas cantidades y de una sola marca, puso su letrero en la puerta de su casa para hacer su publicidad y con el tiempo, logró hacerse conocida en su barrio. En la actualidad ha incrementado y variado el stock de sus productos comprando en mayor cantidad y hasta el momento lo viene realizando sola.
Considera rentable su negocio pues tiene bastante demanda por lo caluroso de la zona. Le gusta, pues le permite tener una ocupación en casa y un ingreso económico, así como el tiempo libre que le deja para hacer otras actividades. Pero lo que no le gusta es cuando llueve muy seguido, pues baja la venta. Pero eso no la desanima y sigue en su negocio, pues sabe que no tiene pierde, ya que tiene una regular clientela que le consume muy seguido sus productos.

Este es su tercer préstamo con la institución MFP, por tanto espera cumplir con sus metas. Además comenta sentirse a gusto con su banco comunal, pues conoce a sus compañeros y considera que son personas responsables.
Con el monto solicitado, de 1000 nuevos soles, invertirá en la compra de bebidas gasificadas en mayor volumen y precios más bajos, buscando variedad de sabores y marcas al gusto de sus clientes.
