Leoncia
Leoncia is 67 years old. She lives in her own home, which she bought together with her husband Fortunato many years ago. She has two grown children who also live in the house with her. Despite her age, she still works in her clothing store. She has been working there for more than fifteen years. She says that over all this time her business has been very busy due to the good service and friendliness she provides her customers. She used to work alone, and now she occasionally relies on her children’s or her husband’s help. She really enjoys spending time with her family.

She feels very happy knowing that she has loan help from MFP [Microfinanzas Prisma] to keep her business going. Additionally, she promises to be timely with her payments, as she has been with previous loans. She is grateful to be a member of her communal bank since her companions are caring and responsible people.
With these 1,000 PEN [$375] she will supply her store with more clothes, which she will bring from the capital city since she can find a greater variety and better prices there.

Leoncia tiene 67 años, vive en su casa propia, la que compró junto a su esposo Fortunato hace muchos años atrás. Tiene dos hijos ya mayores, quienes también habitan en su casa.
A pesar de su edad, ella sigue laborando en su tienda de ropa. Labor que lleva realizando más de 15 años y comenta que en todo este tiempo su negocio ha sido en más concurrido por la buena atención y la amabilidad que dan a sus clientes. Antes lo realizaba sola y ahora, a veces, cuenta con el apoyo de sus hijos o de su esposo, y eso es lo que más le gusta, estar en compañía de su familia.

Ella se siente muy contenta de saber que tiene el apoyo de los préstamos de MFP para seguir con su negocio. Por otro lado, se compromete a ser puntual con sus cuotas de pago, como en los anteriores créditos. Y le agrada ser integrante de su banco comunal, pues sus compañeros son personas solidarias y responsables.
Con estos 1,000 nuevos soles se abastecerá de más prendas de vestir, las cuales traerá desde la ciudad capital, porque allí hay mayor variedad y mejores precios.
