Nena
Nena, 57, is a brave, hardworking woman. She has six children and will care for and educate them until they can go off on their own. She lives in her own house with her husband Emilio, 56, who is a teacher. It is Emilio who gives her the strength to keep working toward a better life.

She sells secondhand clothing of all sorts, for women, men, and children. She buys her merchandise by the bale in the market in her city and sells it in the villages and other farflung areas. Her husband, who teaches in one of the villages, inspired her to start the business. Because she has to travel a lot and transport the merchandise by herself, the work can be difficult. She has to give it all her effort. Although she already sells a lot, she would like to increase her income and have a greater volume of sales. That's why she wants to keep working and expand her business.

This will be her twelfth loan with MFP, and she is hoping to be able to pursuing her goals. She is committed once again to making her payments on time, as she did for previous loans. She is also happy to be part of a village bank because all the other members are very friendly, supportive people.

She will use the amount requested—1000 soles—to buy more bundles of secondhand clothing, looking for low prices for her bulk purchases.

Nena tiene 57 años, es una mujer muy valiente y emprendedora. Tiene seis hijos, a quienes cuida y da educación hasta que ellos puedan ser independientes. Vive en su casa propia, a lado de su esposo Emilio, de 56 años, quien es docente y es quien le brinda las fuerzas para seguir trabajando para tener una mejor calidad de vida.

Ella se dedica a la venta de ropa de segundo uso, de toda variedad, para damas, caballeros y niños. Su mercadería la compra en el centro comercial de su ciudad por fardos y la lleva a vender por las rivera del río en los caseríos y zonas alejadas. Se inició con esta actividad por la idea e iniciativa de su esposo, quien es profesor en un caserío. Aunque su trabajo le resulta un poco pesado, por los viajes que realiza, y porque tiene que cargar su mercadería ella sola, sabe que debe esforzarse al máximo. A pesar que vende mucho, a ella le gustaría tener mayores ganancias y vender en mayor volumen. Por eso, desea seguir trabajando y hacer crecer su negocio.

Este es el crédito número 12 que tiene con MFP, por tanto espera continuar con sus objetivos. Por su parte, se compromete, una vez más, a cumplir con sus cuotas de pago como en sus créditos anteriores. Y está muy contenta de pertenecer a su banco comunal, ya que todos sus integrantes son personas muy amables y solidarias.
Con el monto solicitado, 1000 soles, comprará mayor cantidad de ropa usadas en fardos, buscando precios bajos por sus compras en volumen.
