Quelita
Quelita is 54 years old and she is a hardworking woman with a great desire to progress in life. He lifetime companion’s name is Cesar and he is a farmer; they have four children aged 23, 22, 21 and 15 whom they love very much.

She sells groceries in a shop she has set in her house about 7 years ago. She has started this activity because she needed an additional income and thanks to a loan she obtained she could finish buying all she needed to open her shop, in time succeeding in increasing the number of her customers. She likes her job because she can stay hone while counting on the security provided by an economic income; on top of this, she can use her free time to engage in other activities such as taking care of her house. On the other hand, she does not like it when customers ask to pay their shopping on credit: she says she has had bad experiences with this form of payment because she was not repaid, and for this reason she now refuses to accept it, and she sells everything for cash, as this is how she gets the best results.

This is the third loan she is requesting from MFP and she feels deeply grateful for the economic support she has received. She also likes being a part of her Communal Bank because she knows the other members and she thinks they are responsible and caring people.

The 1500 PEN she has requested will be invested in the purchase of more groceries such as rice, sugar, eggs, milk and other products at wholesale prices; she will look for the best products at the cheapest prices in order to earn a better income.

Quelita tiene 54 años, es una mujer trabajadora y con muchas ganas de salir adelante. Su pareja es Cesar, quien es agricultor, fruto de esta unión tienen cuatro hijos de 23, 22, 21 y 15 años de edad, a quienes quieren mucho.

Ella se dedica a la venta de abarrotes, para eso cuenta con una bodega instalada en su vivienda desde hace 7 años. Inició este negocio por la necesidad de contar con un ingreso adicional, con el uso de un crédito pudo completar lo que necesitaba para instalar su tienda y con el tiempo ha logrado incrementar su clientela. Le gusta su negocio, pues le permite estar en casa y contar con la tranquilidad de un ingreso económico, además puede emplear sus momentos libres en otras actividades como el cuidado de su hogar. Por lo contrario, no le gusta cuando sus clientes le solicitan créditos por sus compras, pues comenta que ya tuvo malas experiencias con este tipo de venta y no le pagaron, por eso ahora se niega y todo lo que vende lo hace al contado, eso le trae mejores resultados.

Este es su tercer préstamo con MFP y se siente muy agradecida por el apoyo financiero que le brindan. También le agrada ser parte de su banco comunal, pues conoce a sus integrantes y los considera personas responsables y solidarias.
El monto solicitado, de 1500 nuevos soles, lo invertirá en la compra de más abarrotes, como arroz, azúcar, huevos, leche y otros, al por mayor, buscando los mejores más bajos precios para así obtener mejores ganancias.
