Cimi
Cimi, 47, is a very happy woman with the desire to excel. She is married to Alipio who is a photographer and is the father of her two children: Sara and Jireh who are 17 and 13 years old, respectively. They live together in her own home which they built with a lot of effort.

Her activity is sewing, a trade she learned by studying at a vocational education center. She then bought a sewing machine with her savings and she began investing more with the loans from MFP. She currently has four sewing machines which she has in her home where she also attends to her customers. She has succeeded in being preferred by and recommended by many people. She began her business over 10 years ago and so far has been doing it on her own. She likes what she does because she can help her partner in covering the household expenses. But the difficult part is sitting in the same position all the time which causes back pain. But that does not discourage her and she continues working and striving.

This is her 16th loan with MFP. She feels happy to be able to have working capital so that she can deliver on the orders she has pending; in addition to being comfortable with her communal bank because it is a united and collaborative group.

With the amount requested, 1500 PEN, she will fix the machine that she uses to stamp brooches and buttons and also buy materials (fabric, thread, etc.).

Cimi tiene 47 años, es una mujer muy alegre y con deseos de superación. Está casada con Alipio, quien es fotógrafo y el padre de sus dos hijos: Sara y Jireh de 17 y 13 años respectivamente. Juntos viven en su casa propia, la cual construyeron a base de mucho esfuerzo.

Su actividad es la costura, oficio que aprendió estudiando en un centro de educación ocupacional, luego compró una máquina de coser con sus ahorros y fue invirtiendo más con los préstamos de MFP. Actualmente cuenta con cuatro máquinas de coser, las cuales instaló en su vivienda, donde también atiende a sus clientes, logrando ganarse la preferencia y recomendación de muchas personas. Se inició hace más de 10 años en este negocio y hasta el momento lo viene realizando sola. Le gusta lo que hace porque puede apoyar a su pareja a solventar los gastos de su hogar; pero lo difícil es estar sentada en una misma postura todo el tiempo, lo que le ocasiona dolores de espalda, pero eso no la desanima y continua trabajando y esforzándose.

Este es el préstamo número16 que tiene con la institución MFP, se siente contenta de poder contar con un capital de trabajo y así poder entregar los pedidos que tiene pendiente. Además de estar a gusto con su banco comunal porque es un grupo unido y colaborador.
Con el monto solicitado, de 1500 nuevos soles, invertirá en arreglar la máquina con la que estampa broches y botones. Y también comprará materiales (telas, hilos, etc.)
