Julia
Julia is 41 years old. She is a hard-working and very entrepreneurial woman. Her partner is Homero, who is a trader. The couple have three children: Andrea, Homero and Karina, who are 20, 11 and 15 years old respectively. They live in a house that they worked hard to buy.

Julia's business is selling beef from a small stall in the town market. She started this business more than 12 years ago, seeing that this product was in high demand. Up to now her business has done well. She carries out her work alongside her niece who helps serve the customers. Julia is happy because her business has allowed her to make substantial income which, in turn, has enabled her to cover her household expenses and offer her children a better quality of life. She has plans to grow her business and to start raising cattle because she has a 30-hectare plot of land with adequate pasture for this activity.

This is Julia's 17th loan from MFP. She is very comfortable with her group as she considers the members to be responsible people. She will invest the loan for 3,000 soles in buying more beef. She will also buy wire so that she can fence in the land where she plans to raise her cattle so that she can keep them safe.
