Margarita
Margarita is 60 years old and married to Felix with whom she has four children, all of whom are independent. She and her husband live in a small rustic house located in the indigenous community Boca del Ipoki, Chanchamayo.

She has a grocery store on the main road at the entrance to the community, which is a strategic location and generates a favorable bottom line. She has had the business for 8 years. Previously, she was a farmer, however aware that her energy level was not the same, she decided to open her store. Her husband still works in the fields, cultivating coffee and cocoa. Moreover, as they neglected some of their parcels, they preferred to rent them to other farmers and thus not lose income.

“My store is doing well, because I also sell vegetables, meat, cheese, condiments and other items. Consequetly, I always have customers,” Margarita says proudly. She expects to have sufficient savings, a product of her business, so that she can assure herself a full life in her old age. Meanwhile, she will work as she always has, very carefully.

This is her third loan with MFP and she promises to repay it promptly according to the monthly timetable. “Sol Naciente” is the name of her communal bank, where she attends meetings and participates actively. She will invest this money in the purchase of staples like vegetables and meat, groceries, provisions, candy, soft drinks, etc. in order to stock her store.

Margarita tiene 60 años, está casada con Félix, con quien tiene cuatro hijos, pero ya son independientes. Ella y su esposo viven juntos en una casita rústica ubicada en la comunidad nativa Boca del Ipoki, Chanchamayo.
Ella tiene una tienda de comestibles en la misma carretera principal, en la entrada de su comunidad y por estar en un lugar estratégico sus resultados son favorables. Lleva 8 años en este negocio, ya que antes se dedicaba a la agricultura y consciente de que sus fuerzas ya no son las mismas decidió abrir su tienda. Por su parte, su esposo se dedica a las actividades del campo con el cultivo de café y cacao. Además, como descuidaron algunas parcelas prefieren alquilarlas a otros agricultores y así no perder ingresos. “Me va bien en mi bodega, porque también ofrezco verduras, carnes, queso, condimentos y otros; por eso siempre tengo clientela”, menciona orgullosa. Margarita espera tener los ahorros suficientes, producto de sus actividades, para asegurarse una vida plena en su ancianidad, mientras tanto trabajará como la hace hasta ahora, con mucho esmero.

Este es su tercer crédito con MFP, por ello promete pagar con puntualidad las cuotas mensuales. “Sol Naciente”, es el nombre de su banco comunal, donde acude a las reuniones y participa activamente.
Invertirá este dinero en la compra de productos de primera necesidad como verduras y carnes, abarrotes, víveres, golosinas, gaseosas, etc., para surtir su tienda.
