Pochita
Pochita is a courageous and persevering 37-year-old woman. She works hard and strives to achieve a better quality of life for her four children, aged 14, 12, 9, and 8 years. They live together in the house she built with her partner, 42-year-old José.

Pochita works selling food, and has dedicated a small space in her home where she serves the most delicious regional dishes. For the past six months, she has sold food in the mornings and on weekends, although she has five years of experience in the business--earlier, she traveled around the city selling food on the streets. She likes this kind of work, because she can work during the mornings and have the rest of the day free for home activities. Her income has been good, allowing her to improve conditions for her children. Her biggest dream is that eventually, her business will move from the space in her home and she will be able to build a fine restaurant that people will enjoy.

This is Pochita's 14th loan with MFP, and she is very happy with the financial support she has received to increase her working capital. She agrees again to make her payments on time, as she has done with her previous loans. She also feels comfortable belonging to the community bank, because all of the members are responsible and caring.

With a loan of 2000 nuevos soles, Pochita will buy rice, oil, eggs, condiments, tubers, vegetables, and other items needed to prepare the foods that she sells.

Pochita tiene 37 años, es una mujer valiente y perseverante, trabaja mucho y se esfuerza para poder brindar una mejor calidad de vida a sus cuatro hijos de 14, 12, 9 y 8 años. Juntos viven en la casa que construyó al lado de su pareja, José de 42 años.

Ella se dedica a la venta de comida, para ello ha destinado un pequeño espacio en su vivienda donde ofrece los más deliciosos platillos de la región. Vende durante las mañanas, los fines de semana, desde hace 6 meses, aunque conoce este negocio desde hace 5 años, pues anteriormente vendía de manera ambulatoria por las calles de la ciudad. En este trabajo ella se siente a gusto, ya que solo se dedica unas horas del día durante las mañanas y tiene libre el resto del tiempo para poder realizar algunas actividades en su hogar. Además tiene buenos ingresos que le permiten poder brindar mejores condiciones a sus hijos, su principal anhelo es que el local que tiene ahora en casa siga en progreso hasta que logre consolidar un restaurante que goce del prestigio y de la preferencia de la gente.

Este es su crédito número 14 con MFP y está muy contenta por el apoyo financiero que le están brindando para aumentar su capital de trabajo. Por otro lado, se compromete, una vez más, a cumplir con el pago puntual de sus cuotas como lo hizo en anteriores créditos que tuvo. Y se siente tranquila perteneciendo a su banco comunal, ya que todos sus integrantes son personas muy responsables y solidarias.

Con el monto solicitado, 2000 nuevos soles, comprará arroz, aceite, huevos, condimentos, tubérculos, verduras y otros elementos que necesita para preparar los alimentos que vende.
