Raquel
Raquel is 42 years old. She is a good woman, friendly and very hardworking. She has lived with her common-law husband Miguel for three years, and they have a small son who is two years old. They live on part of her brother's land, where she has built her house. She enjoys living next to her family, and this improves her quality of life.

She sells groceries such as rice, sugar, eggs, milk, oil, condiments, beans and flour, among other things. She has a small stand that she rents in the main market of the district, which is the busiest in the city. She has been doing this for five years and ever since she started, she has been working on her own, and she has learned how to get better results.

Her labor starts at four in the morning and finishes around nine at night. She has gotten used to these hours of work, although she acknowledges that in the beginning it was not very easy. She has always liked serving the public, and she does this with great care. Above all she knows that the fruit of her labor will make it easier for the couple to bring in all that is necessary for the household. She feels very content with her earnings and further down the road she hopes to have a larger store with a greater variety of products.

This is her first loan with MFP, and she is very thankful to the people who are making it possible that this loan will become a reality. She promises to be punctual with her monthly repayments and plans to work responsibly and in solidarity with the other members of her communal bank. With the sum she is seeking, 600 nuevos soles, she will buy more groceries (rice, sugar, milk, oil, bread, flour, noodles, canned goods and other items) so she can continue growing her business.
