Vanesa
Vanesa is 33 years old, and is a friendly and hardworking woman. She has lived in her own house for the past 8 years along with her husband Henry, aged 36, and her two beloved children: Rosa, age 15, and Jorge, who is 3 years old, to whom she hopes to give a better quality of life.

She is a woman who really likes to work and she feels a great affection for the sales of regional food dishes; this is a work she has been doing for the past year, but for reasons of sickness and a medical prescription, she had to stop doing so. However, she has been surprisingly able to start another business in her home village. She began selling groceries, vegetables, plantains, meats, and other staples. Additionally, she sells sodas, ice, and ice creams, with which she is also able to make money for food and to pay some of her own daily expenses; while her spouse also brings in money working as a rickshaw driver.

What she most likes about her job is that it does not demand much effort and that she can remain at in one place, maintaining her health, and she likes the pace at which her grocery stall business is growing. Over time, she hopes to get the money together to be able to have a warehouse that would allow her to maintain her current customer base and at the same time to increase the quantity and variety of goods from what she currently sells.

This is her sixth credit with MFP, and she is very happy to know that she has a financial support, since this makes her feel more secure in advancing her business prospects. As with the previous loans, she promises again to be punctual in her payments, just as she has done before. She is very pleased to be a part of the community bank and thinks all the members are very responsible and supportive.

With the amount asked for (S/. 3500) she will buy more food items with which to stock her food stall, like some types of sodas and ice cream.

Vanesa tiene 33 años, es una mujer muy amable y trabajadora. Vive en su casa propia desde hace 8 años, junto a su esposo Henry, de 36 años, y sus dos queridos hijos: Rosa de 15 y Jorge de 3 años, a quienes desea brindar una mejor calidad de vida.

Ella es una mujer a quien le gusta mucho trabajar y siente gran afición por la venta de comida regional; esta labor la ha vino realizando hasta hace un año atrás, pero por motivos de enfermedad y prescripción médica tuvo que dejarlo. Sin embargo, ahora nos sorprende con otro negocio que ha establecido en la vereda de su casa. Empezó a vender abarrotes, verduras, plátanos, carnes y otros productos de primera necesidad; adicionalmente vende gaseosas, hielo y helados, con los que también genera el dinero necesario para la alimentación y el pago de algunos gastos propios del día; mientras que su esposo aporta el dinero que lo obtiene trabajando como chofer de un motocarro.
Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es que no le demanda mucho esfuerzo y puede mantenerse en reposo, manteniendo controlada su salud, y le agrada el ritmo con el que va creciendo su puesto de abarrotes. Con el tiempo, espera juntar el dinero necesario para poner una bodega que le permita mantener su clientela y al mismo tiempo incrementar la cantidad y variedad de los artículos que vende actualmente.

Este es el crédito número 6 con MFP, está muy contenta de saber que tiene un apoyo financiero, ya que así se sentirá más segura de avanzar con su trabajo. Asimismo, se compromete, una vez más, a cumplir con el pago puntual de sus cuotas, como lo hizo anteriormente. Y está muy contenta de pertenecer a su banco comunal, ya que todos sus integrantes son muy responsables y solidarios.

Con el monto solicitado (S/. 3500) comprará algunos comestibles con los que surtirá su puesto de ventas, así como también algunas bebidas gaseosas y helados.
