Jacinta
Jacinta, 43, is a tenacious, hard-working woman with a strong drive to get ahead. She separated from the father of her children after many years together and now lives with her children, 23-, 21- and 12-years old, respectively, in a house that she bought with her ex-partner.

Jacinta operates a meat sales business. She has a food stand that she sets up in her front yard where she can meet her customers. She buys live chickens from her brother's farm, chickens that her brother sells to her at a discounted rate. The business is the only one of its kind in the neighborhood and has steadily grown as more and more of her neighbors have come to buy her chickens. She has operated the business for 7 years and spends much of her day tending it. She relies on her children who often help her with everything from buying and preparing the chickens to selling them. For the future, she wants to build on the business by opening a grocery.

This is her 4th MFP loan. She says that she is grateful for your help and confidence because the loan will help her meet her goals. She says, too, that she is committed to repaying the loan in the agreed-upon time and that she is happy with her community bank because she considers its members to be responsible and supportive.
Jacinta will use part of this 2500 new soles loan to buy more chickens for her meat business and the rest to buy merchandise (rice, sugar, milk, eggs, cooking oil, bread, flour, soft drinks, snacks, fruits, vegetables) to start a grocery business.
