Jenny
Jenny is 41 years old and is a hard-working and earnest woman. She is resolute and cheerful as well. She is separated from the father of her son Joseph, age 7. She lives in her mother's house, along with her mother, her three sisters, one brother-in-law, and her son.

She sells typical foods from the region such as "juanes" (rice wrapped in leaves), and "patarashca" (fish wrapped in leaves). These are very popular dishes for consumption since they are traditional foods from the area, but she also prepares various foods. For this reason, every afternoon she sets up a table at the front of her house where she kindly serves her customers, most of whom are neighbors. She has been doing this work for 2 years, managing to grow her clientele, and up until now doing it alone. She likes her work because it provides income to assist with household expenses, in addition to allowing her to be at home to care for her young son. On the other hand, she does not like it when it rains very often, because it makes sales very slow, but that doesn't discourage her.

This is her third loan with the MFP institution and she is grateful for the financial support that helps her to advance her business. Thus, she agrees to comply with the payment of their fees, as with the previous loans. She also feels comfortable with her group, since she considers the other members responsible and caring people.

With the amount requested, of 1500 nuevos soles (Peruvian currency), she will invest in the purchase of supplies and ingredients needed to prepare her meals. She will seek to vary her menu, including adding new dishes that her customers are requesting.

Jenny tiene 41 años, es una mujer trabajadora y empeñosa, además de decidida y alegre. Está separada del padre de su hijo Joseph, de 7 años. Vive en casa de su madre, con ella, sus tres hermanas, uno cuñado y su hijo.
Ella se dedica a la venta de comidas típicas de la región como “juanes” (arroz envuelto en hojas), “patarashca” (pescado envuelto en hojas), siendo estos platillos muy consumidos por ser tradicionales de la zona, pero también prepara diversas comidas. Para eso, todas las tardes, instala una mesa en el frontis de su vivienda donde atiende muy amablemente a sus clientes que en su mayoría son sus vecinos. Lleva realizando este negocio desde hace 2 años, logrando ver crecer su clientela y hasta el momento lo realiza sola. Le gusta su actividad, porque puede contar con un ingreso económico para apoyar con los gastos del hogar, además de estar en casa para atender a su pequeño hijo. Por lo contrario, no le gusta cuando llueve muy seguido, pues le dificulta la venta, aunque eso no la desanima.

Este es su tercer préstamo con la institución MFP y está agradecida con el apoyo financiero para avanzar con su negocio, por lo que se compromete a cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas, como en los créditos anteriores. Y se siente a gusto con su grupo, pues los considera personas responsables y solidarias.
Con el monto solicitado, de 1500 nuevos soles, invertirá en la compra de los víveres e ingredientes necesarios para la preparación de sus comidas, buscará variar su carta incluyendo los nuevos platillos que le están pidiendo sus clientes.
