Sarita
Sarita is 28 years old. For two years she has been living in a rental house in the town of Pampas together with her daughter Alexandra.

At first, things were not easy. Sarita worked hard to save the money she needed to open her own business. She always had a juice bar in mind because there wasn't one in her town. When she opened the bar six years ago there was no competition and her juices sold very well. Over the years she was able to save up and buy more things for her business such as chairs, cups, a blender and decorations for her premises so that it would look smarter and more comfortable. She now has several juice bars round about her which provide her with competition. However, as she has been in the business the longest, she has already gained her customers. For this reason, she does not become discouraged. She would like to continue improving her service. She now has some young ladies who help her to serve her customers.

Sarita belongs to the “María Auxiliadora” community bank and this is her eighty loan from MFP. Over the years, she has learned how to work and fight to achieve her goals. Within her community bank, she has learned to be responsible and to make her repayments on time at each monthly meeting.

Sarita will invest this money in buying fruit (bananas and papaya) by the crate and, if she has enough money left over, she will refurbish her juice bar with new chairs.

Sarita tiene 28 años. Desde hace 2 años vive en una casa alquilada ubicada en la localidad de Pampas, junto a su hija Alexandra.
Sus comienzos no fueron fáciles, trabajó mucho para ahorrar el dinero necesario para abrir su propio negocio. Siempre tuvo en mente una juguería, pues en la ciudad no hay una, cuando la abrió, hace 6 años, no tenía competencia, vendía muy bien. Y en todo ese tiempo pudo ahorrar y comprar más cosas para su negocio, como sillas, vasos y una licuadora y demás adornos para su local. “De esa manera se mirará más elegante y confortable”, pensó. Ahora cuenta con varias juguerías a su alrededor que le hacen competencia, pero como ella es antigua en el negocio tiene su clientela ganada, por ello no se desanima, al contrario desea seguir mejorando en la atención. Ahora ya cuenta con señoritas que le ayudan en la atención.

Ella pertenece al banco comunal “María Auxiliadora” y este es su octavo 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.
Sarita invertirá este dinero en la compra de fruta (plátanos, papaya) por cajones y si el dinero le alcanza remodelará su juguería con nuevas sillas.
