Jacinta
Jacinta, 62, is a very courageous woman because she was widowed three years ago, from her husband Oscar. They had eight children for whom they cared lovingly. Now she lives in her daughter Sara's house.

Jacinta feels alone because her eternal companion died. Because of this she began to live with her daughter, whom she loves a lot. But because she is a hardworking woman, she continues earning a living as a cook in a mine, where she makes 30 dishes of homemade food. It is going very well for her in her business because food in that area is scarce and this gives her greater demand.

In addition, thanks to her dedication she managed to be hired as a cook in the cafe of the mine where they pay her 25 soles [PEN] a day. All these jobs, plus the monthly pension she receives for the death of her husband, give her financial stability. This fills her with peace and happiness. "I will wait in peace, because the rest of my life I will not worry my family," she says calmly.

This is her second loan with MFP and she promises to make the payments on time. Also, it pleases her to be part of her group because all the members are responsible and very supportive people.

Jacinta will invest the requested money in buying provisions, trout (fish), and guinea pigs (the rabbit type) to prepare her meals.

Jacinta tiene 62 años, es una mujer muy valiente, pues enviudó hace 3 años, de Oscar su esposo. Tuvieron ocho hijos, a los que cuidaron con amor. Ahora ella vive en casa de su hija Sara.
Jacinta se siente sola, pues su eterno compañero, murió. A raíz de ello comenzó a vivir con su hija, a la que quiere mucho. Pero como es una mujer trabajadora, continua ganándose la vida como cocinera en una mina, donde prepara 30 platos de comida casera. Le va muy bien en su negocio, pues la comida por esa zona es escasa y le brinda mayor demanda. Además, gracias a su dedicación pudo ser contratada como cocinera en el cafetín de la mina, ahí le pagan 25 soles diarios. Todas estás actividades, más la pensión mensual que recibe por la muerte de su esposo, hacen que tenga una estabilidad económica. Eso la llena de tranquilidad y alegría, “esperaré en paz, pues el resto que me quede de vida, no preocuparé a mi familia”, comenta tranquila.

Este es su segundo crédito con MFP, por lo que promete cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas. Además le agrada ser parte de su grupo, porque todos sus integrantes son personas responsables y muy solidarias.
Jacinta invertirá el dinero solicitado en la compra de víveres, trucha (pescado) y cuyes (tipo conejo) para la preparación de sus comidas.
