Mili
Mili is 30 years old and lives in a house that she bought 9 years ago. She lives with her husband, Luis, and their three children.

MIli's husband is working on the construction of a hydroelectric plant. He returns home after a number of days or even months. Mili started selling candies from a cart by the entrance to an elementary school in her town. She sells sweet treats, drinks and other products to the children and this earns her a good income as she is the only person to sell at the school. She hopes to make the most of this whole year, saving the money she needs to have a solid amount of capital. During the afternoons, Mili also works selling tamales and juice from a stall that she rents from the government in a central location in the city. She has been selling there for many years and hopes to save up the money she needs to remodel her premises and attract more customers.

Mili belongs to the 'María Auxiliadora' community bank and this is her third loan from MFP. Over the years, she has learned to work hard and fight to achieve her aims. In her community bank she has learned to be responsible and make her repayments on time at each monthly meeting.

Mili will invest this money in buying more sweet treats, cookies, chocolates and drinks for her stall.

Mili tiene 30 años. Vive en la casa que compró hace 9 años, junto a su esposo Luis y sus tres hijos.
Su esposo trabaja en la construcción de una hidroeléctrica, es por eso que después de varios días y hasta meses, regresa a casa. Mili comenzó a vender golosinas, en una carreta, en la puerta de la escuela de su localidad. Los dulces, bebidas y demás productos para los niños, hacen que obtenga buenos ingresos, pues es la única que vende en la escuela, por ello espera aprovechar todo este año, ahorrando lo necesario para obtener un capital sólido. Asimismo, durante las tardes, se dedica a la venta de tamales y jugos en un puesto que alquila a la gobernación en una casa céntrica de la ciudad. Ahí ya tiene muchos años vendiendo, por ello espera ahorrar lo necesario para poder remodelar el local y obtener más clientela.

Ella pertenece al banco comunal “María Auxiliadora” y este es su tercer crédito con MFP. En todos estos años aprendió a trabajar y luchar por sus objetivos, y en su asociación aprendió a ser responsable y cumplir con los pagos de las cuotas que mensualmente aportan en cada reunión.
Mili invertirá este dinero en la compra de más dulces, galletas, chocolates y bebidas, para su puesto.
