Charlenia
Charlenia, 25, is a hardworking, cheerful, very dynamic woman who very much wants to make progress. Her spouse is José who works in transportation. They have no children and for the moment are living in her in-laws’ house.

Her activity is selling fast-food (sausages with chicken, fried chicken and others typical of the region) and soft-drinks. To do so she sets up a table in front of her house where she tends to her customers who for the most part are her neighbors. She starts her work in the afternoon preparing her dishes because she works mornings as a teacher at a local school. She is happy because with this business she’s able to earn income in addition to her monthly teacher’s salary that she can use to cover all her family’s expenses. The problem is that she ends up very tired after all the day’s work but despite this she wants to continue with her business until she can have a locale where she can take care of her customers.

This is her first MFP loan. She comments that she’s grateful for the opportunity to have a line of credit to reach her goals. She, therefore, commits to make her installment payments.

She will use the requested 1500 new soles to buy utensils (pots, dishes, glasses) for her business as well as ingredients and supplies to make her food.

Charlenia tiene 25 años, es una mujer trabajadora, alegre, muy dinámica y deseosa de progresar. Su pareja es José, quien se dedica al transporte. No tienen hijos y por el momento viven en la casa de sus suegros.
Su actividad es la venta de comida rápida (salchichas con pollo, pollos frito y otros típicos de la región) y gaseosas. Para esto instala una mesa en el frontis de su vivienda donde atiende a sus clientes, que en su mayoría son sus vecinos. Esta labor la empieza por la tarde, con todos los preparados de sus comidas, ya que por la mañana trabaja como docente en un colegio de su localidad. Esta contenta porque con este negocio puede tener un ingreso económico adicional a su sueldo mensual como profesora, con lo que puede solventar todos los gastos de su familia. El problema es que termina muy cansada por todo el trabajo del día, pero a pesar de eso desea continuar con su negocio hasta lograr tener un local donde atender a sus clientes.

Este es su primer préstamo con la institución MFP. Comenta estar agradecida con la oportunidad de contar con una línea de crédito para concretar sus planes. Por tanto se compromete a cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas.
Con el monto solicitado, de 1500 nuevos soles, invertirá en la compra de utensilios para su negocio (ollas, platos, vasos), además de insumos e ingredientes para la preparación de sus comidas.
