Mirna
Mirna, 56 years of age, is a hard-working and responsible woman. She is a widow, and for this reason had to raise her two children alone. They are now grown and financially independent, but live near her. She has her own home, where she also takes in her grandchildren. She works a great deal, as she would like to have a higher standard of living and be able to live out her senior years in peace. Mirna’s work involves food sales. She works in her house, generally at night, but on weekends can work all day and starts very early. Her daily food staple is chicken soup, whereas on weekends the public prefers her delicious ceviche and grilled foods. She has been in this business for more than 5 years, and carries out this work with the support of her son and daughter-in-law. Since she started this enterprise, her finances have been improving. She continues with this work because it’s allowed her to use her earnings to carry out other activities such as room and rickshaw rentals.

She is currently not in good health, which is why she will dedicate herself only to the rentals business. She very much enjoys her work because it uses her culinary skills, but she knows that she is at the stage where this will end because of her health. For this reason, she wants to devote all her priorities to economic activities that won’t demand too much effort, yet continue to generate the income her family needs to live peacefully.

This is her 16th loan with MFP. She thanks all those people who have provided her the opportunity to access credit so she can finalize her plans. She comments that she likes belonging to her cooperative bank as she knows all the members and considers them to be responsible and unified people.

With the 1,500 Peruvian soles requested, she will buy some ingredients necessary to prepare the food she sells. However, she will invest the majority of the funds into repairing her rickshaw so that it works perfectly.
