Orsa
Orsa is 43 years old. She is a happy, enthusiastic, and enterprising woman. Her partner, Alfonso, is a storekeeper and together they have five children. They live in the house she bought with the help of her partner and where they continually strive to get ahead.

She works raising chickens, which she does on her own land where she has set up a shed that can hold up to 300 chickens. She believes that her work requires a lot of patience and a real aptitude. When the right amount of time has passed and the birds have reached their ideal weight, she takes them in special cages to the city's market to sell. She has been doing this work for four years, which was time she needed and that has allowed her to fall into the rhythm of her work and to learn the selling techniques that allow her to earn more. She has the complete help of her older children and her partner. What she likes about her work are the profits she receives from her sales, which allow her to cover her daily household expenses. What she does not like is that the price of chicken feed is not stable and from one minute to the next it can go up, which means she has to spend more. Nevertheless, this does not deter her from her work.

This is her sixth loan with MFP and she has always been a very good member of her communal bank, where she is well-liked for being very responsible and supportive. She is thankful for being offered this loan, as it will support her in continuing with her business.

With the requested loan of 3,000 nuevos soles she will buy more small chickens to start a new round of growing. She will also renovate some watering areas and buy feed.

Orsa tiene 43 años, es una mujer alegre, entusiasta y emprendedora. Su pareja es Alfonso, quien es comerciante, con él tiene cinco hijos. Viven en la casa que compró con la ayuda de su cónyuge y donde luchan continuamente para salir adelante.
Su trabajo es la crianza de pollos, esta labor la realiza en su propio terreno, donde tiene instalado un galpón con una capacidad de hasta 300 pollos. Considera que es una actividad que requiere de mucha paciencia y de gran disposición para su ejecución. Cuando se ha cumplido el tiempo preciso para la venta y las aves han alcanzado su peso ideal, las traslada en jaulas especiales hasta el mercado de la ciudad. Esta actividad la viene realizando desde hace 4 años, tiempo necesario que le ha servido para acoplarse al ritmo de trabajo y aprender técnicas de venta que le ayudan a ganar más. Tiene la ayuda total de sus hijos mayores y de su pareja. Lo que le gusta de su trabajo es la rentabilidad que obtiene por sus ventas, lo cual le permite pagar los gastos diarios en su casa. Lo que no le gusta es que los alimentos balanceados de los pollos son inconstantes y se incrementan de un momento a otro haciendo que su inversión aumente, pero esto no la desanima de seguir trabajando.

Este es su préstamo número 6 con la institución MFP, siempre fue muy buena socia en su banco comunal, donde la quieren mucho por ser muy responsable y solidaria. Agradece que le brinden este préstamo que será un respaldo para seguir implementando su negocio.
Con el préstamo solicitado, de 3000 nuevos soles, comprará más pollos pequeños para iniciar su nueva campaña de crianza. También renovará algunos bebederos y comprará alimento balanceado.
