Gimia
Gimia, age 36, is a very responsible and hard-working woman. She has four minor children, ages 16, 14, 7, and 3. They live together in the house that her ex-life partner built with her help. She loves each one of her children, and it is for them that she gives the best of herself day to day in order to reach her goal of seeing them become professionals.

Her work consists of selling groceries and basic needs products. She complements her business with meat sales. She has a small place that she arranged in her house. She works there with the help of her children, who take rotating shifts.

In order to stock her business she heads to the city fishing port where she gets the freshest fish, which has the greatest demand from her neighbors. She buys the groceries at commercial stores in the center of the city. She does this task every three days or weekly. She has been doing this work for six years, which is the amount of time that she has been raising her children alone.

What she likes about her work is that she has income without a lot of effort. She gets a little tired when she does a lot of activity. Also, she has time to be able to help her children with their school work. It is going well for her. She has good income that allows her to make her payments punctually.

She hopes to be able to expand her business and to start saving in order to invest in a carpentry shop in the future.

This is her first loan with MFP. So far it is going well for her in her group, and she is comfortable working with them. She plans on continuing to be a punctual and very responsible member like she has been so far. Also, she is grateful for the opportunity given to her so that she is able to invest in her business activity.

She will use the requested 800 soles to buy groceries like a sack of rice (180 soles), a sack of sugar (150 soles), three crates of small cartons of milk (126 soles), two crates of large cartons of milk (160 soles), bread, eggs, cooking oil, bananas, onions, flour, and other products. A fixed amount of approximately 150 soles is for the daily purchase of fish.
