Jakeline
Jakeline is 23 years old and married to Misael. They have two children, and she loves them very much. For a year now they have lived in Jakeline’s grandmother’s house.

When Jakeline moved into her new home she started to think about selling food, since the area is very busy. Consequently, she began saving up to buy a van. She now sells breakfast and various kinds of drinks (made from oats, apples, soya etc.) every morning from the doorway of her home. Of an afternoon she sells hamburgers with fries and coffee. She has worked hard since she started and has been successful so far. For this reason she is keen to buy more supplies. “The basic goods I use are oil, potatoes and sugar. I have to buy them in bulk to reduce costs”, she says.

This is her second loan with MFP. She is very grateful for the financial help she is receiving. It allows her to improve her business and learn to save money with her community bank, whose members are all responsible and supportive people.

Jakeline will invest this money in a new van and, if the money stretches far enough, she will also buy some bags of sugar and bottles of oil.

Jakeline tiene 23 años, está casada con Misael, con quien tiene dos hijos, a los que quiere mucho. Actualmente, desde hace un año, viven en la casa de su abuela.
Desde que llegó a su nueva vivienda pensó en vender comida, pues la zona es muy concurrida. Es así que comenzó a ahorrar para comprarse un carrito móvil para la venta de su comida. Ahora, durante las mañanas, en la puerta de su casa, vende desayunos y diversas bebidas (avena, manzana, soya y demás); y por las tardes vende hamburguesas con papas fritas y café. En este tiempo, de arduo trabajo, pudo obtener buenos resultados, por ello se siente con el ánimo de comprar más víveres, “mi materia prima es aceite, papa y azúcar, entonces tengo que comprar por cantidad para reducir costos”, afirma.

Este es su segundo préstamo con MFP, por lo que agradece el apoyo económico que recibe, lo que le permite mejorar su negocio, además de aprender a ahorrar en su asociación, donde los integrantes son personas responsables y solidarias.
Jakeline invertirá este dinero en la compra de un nuevo carrito móvil de comida y si el dinero le alcanza podrá comprar sacos de azúcar y botellones de aceite.
