Paquita
Paquita is 56 years old. She is a very hardworking woman with a big desire to better herself. She is currently separated from the man with whom she shared her days for a lot of years, she has 9 children, who are all grown up. She lives in a house of her own, which she got as a result of her relationship and shares it with just one of her daughters. They both put a lot of effort into trying to have a comfortable life. She fishes for a living. In order to do it, she has a small boat equipped with the necessary tools and accessories. She fishes in areas that are close to the city or in some rivers of which she already knows the resources that they carry. She directs her work towards obtaining the species that are consumed the most, those that are of the largest sizes and those that are better priced in the market, always respecting the close season of the species that are in danger of extinction or in reproductive period. When she has the fish, she sells it in her locality's central market herself, and with the help of some of her children. She sells at wholesale, to temporary or street vendors. She has been doing this for 40 years and acknowledges that it is a very profitable activity for the revenue that it generates. Also, she likes doing it, because it is her source of income. She says that thanks to this trade she has been able to lead a quiet and comfortable life. For this reason, she has plans to venture into the business of river transportation of passengers, and plans to build a special boat for this activity. This is her loan number 7 with MPF, which is why she is thankful for the people who make it possible for her to pursue her goals. On the other hand, she is very committed, once again, to make her repayments on time, as she did before. And she is very happy to be a part of her communal bank, since all the members are very kind, nice and supportive people. The amount requested (S/. 2000) will be invested into making small repairs to the boat she currently owns and will make a down payment to get the other boat.
