Sulejka
Sulejka is 42 years old. She is a hard-working, entrepreneurial, dynamic lady. Her partner is 48-year-old Justo and the couple have three children: 15-year-old Iván, 11-year-old Ximena and 1-year-old Saori. They live together in her in-laws' home.

Sulejka's business is selling fast food such as salchipapas, fried chicken, fried rice, etc. She makes her sales outside her home. She starts work very early in the morning, going to the market to find the best ingredients. Once home again, she starts preparing her delicious dishes which have become very well known in her neighborhood. She has been in this business for more than two years and she works with the help of her sister. She considers her business to be profitable because it makes her good income. Before this, she used to work for other people and had a lot of problems because she didn't make good income and always had difficulty in meeting some of her household expenses. However, she decided that it was the right time to start her own business and become independent. She is now doing much better and would like to continue growing her business. She would like to become a prosperous businesswoman.

This is Sulejka's sixth loan from MFP and she is very happy to know that she has financial support because it makes her feel secure in making progress in her business. She pledges, once again, to make her repayments on time as she has done with her previous loans. She is very happy to belong to her community bank because all the members are very friendly and supportive.

Sulejka will use the 1,000 soles she has requested to buy ingredients for preparing some of her dishes. She will buy potatoes, oil and other supplies in bulk. This will allow her to continue in her business. She also needs to refurbish some tables and chairs in order to provide her customers with a better service.

Sulejka tiene 42 años, es una mujer trabajadora, emprendedora y muy dinámica. Su pareja es Justo, de 48 años, con quien tienen tres hijos: Iván de 15 años, Ximena de 11 y la menor, Saori de un año. Juntos, viven en la casa de sus suegros.
Su actividad es la venta de comida rápida, como salchipapas, pollo broaster, arroz chaufa y otros. La venta la realiza en el frontis de su vivienda; desde muy temprano inicia su labor, cuando va al mercado en busca de los mejores ingredientes, una vez en su casa comienza a preparar sus deliciosos platos que le han hecho muy conocida en su barrio. Lleva realizando este trabajo por más de 2 años y lo hace con la ayuda de su hermana. Lo considera rentable porque le genera buenos ingresos económicos, pues antes de esto trabajaba para otras personas y tenía muchas dificultades, ya que no tenía buenos ingresos económicos y siempre sufría para pagar algunos gastos del hogar, pero decidió que era momento de empezar su negocio propio y ser independiente. Ahora le está yendo mucho mejor y desea seguir creciendo y convertirse en una prospera empresaria.

Este es el crédito número 6 que tiene con MFP y está muy contenta de saber que tiene un apoyo financiero, pues así se siente segura de avanzar con su negocio. Por su parte, se compromete, una vez más, a cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas de manera puntual, como lo hizo en sus créditos anteriores. Y está muy feliz de pertenecer a su banco comunal, ya que todos sus integrantes son muy amables y solidarios.
Con el monto solicitado, 1000 soles, comprará ingredientes para la preparación de sus platillos; papas, aceite en cajas y otros en mayor volumen, para seguir realizando su trabajo. También necesita refaccionar algunas sillas y mesas para atender mejor a sus clientes.
