Juana
Juana is 53 years old and is a very hard working and optimistic woman. She is also happy and extroverted. She is separated from the father of her children. She now lives alone with them, Kensi is 25 years old and Tedsu is 18 years old. She has her own house, which she built on the land that she inherited from her father.

She makes a living preparing and selling food on the go like noodles, rice "chaufa", fried chicken, etc. She prepares everything during the day and then is posted in the front of her house. During the evenings her customers begin to arrive that are for the most part her neighbors and people passing by. She has been doing this work for more than 20 years and she currently counts on her sister for help in preparing food and attending to the customers. She gives her a daily pay. In this way she supports her with an income. She likes her work because she relies on the income to be able to cover the household expenses. In addition, she likes to cool, a skill that she learned thanks to her mother, who taught her when she way very young. The problem is the physical exhaustion that comes to her on long days since she remains open until very late in the night to sell everything she that prepared. She is conscious that it is her source of income and wishes to continue.

This is the fourth loan she has with the MFP institution and she feels thankful for the financial support. She hopes to continue counting on more loans. Because of this she says that she will be punctual with the payment of her dues, as in the previous loans. In addiition, she likes the group that makes up her communal bank because she considers the members to be responsible and supportive people.

With the amount requested of 1000 nuevos soles, she will invest in the purchase of wood to fix up her locale. She also needs tables and chairs. She will also replace her cooking utensils (plates, spoons, forks, glasses, and others).
