Lili
Lili is 55 years old. She is enthusiastic and a dreamer, with a strong desire to improve and provide a better quality of life to her family. Her husband is Cristóbal, with whom she has six children. They live together in the home that they built, which is a result of much effort and dedication.

She makes a living selling fruit. Everyday she goes out into the city streets, transporting her products in a cart and calling out in her strong voice to her customers, to buy her fruit. She has been selling in this way for a year and she works by herself. When the sun is very strong she sets up a small stand, with a small table under a plastic covering to provide shade, to sell there during the day. Along with selling fruit, she also works in the evenings selling "salchipapas" (french fries and fried sausages) on the sidewalk outside her house. She is a woman who loves her work because it is her only form of income and it allows her to cover the necessary expenses which are demanded by her large family.

This is the first loan she has taken out through MFP. She thanks everyone who has made her loan possible, so that she can make her plans reality. Also she is thankful that she is a part of her communal bank because all of the members are responsible and supportive.

With the amount she has requested, 300 nuevos soles, she will buy a great variety of fruits grown in the region, like oranges, mandarins, aguaje (a small fruit that comes from a palm tree) and others, to be able to continue selling.

Lili tiene 55 años, es una mujer soñadora y entusiasta, con muchas ganas de progresar y brindar una mejor calidad de vida a su familia. Su pareja es Cristóbal, con quien tiene seis hijos y vive junto a ellos en la casa que construyeron con mucho esfuerzo y dedicación.

Ella se dedica a la venta de frutas. Todos los días se traslada por las calles de la ciudad transportando sus productos en una carretilla y llamando con su fuerte voz a sus clientes para que le compren las frutas. Lleva realizando esta actividad desde hace un año y lo hace sola. Cuando observa que el sol es demasiado fuerte instala un pequeño puesto y coloca una pequeña mesa bajo la sombra de un plástico para vender ahí durante el día. Complementa este trabajo con la venta de “salchipapas” (papas y salchichas fritas) en la vereda de su casa, por las noches. Ella es una mujer que ama su trabajo porque es su única fuente de ingresos y eso le permite cubrir los gastos necesarios que le demanda su amplia familia.

Este es su primer préstamo con la institución MFP, por ello agradece a todas las personas que hacen posible su financiamiento para que pueda concretar sus planes. Además le agrada ser parte de su banco comunal porque todos sus integrantes son personas responsables y solidarias entre sí.
Con el monto solicitado, de 300 nuevos soles, comprará una gran variedad de frutas de la región como naranjas, mandarinas, aguaje y otras para continuar vendiendo.
