Lourdes
Lourdes is 67 years old. She is a joyful woman and full of life. She is married to Ulises and has five adult children. She lives in the house she owns with her husband, their daughter, and their two grandchildren. She is raising them very lovingly and wants to provide them with the best quality of life so that they have a future with no financial problems.

Lourdes' work is selling sweets. She has a display case at home where she offers the public cookies, gum, candy, and other products that her customers ask for, such as small snacks. She has been in this business for five months and combines it with selling food. She has some tables and chairs that she puts out on the sidewalk in front of her house daily. Her children and grandchildren help her set them up on schedule and occasionally they help her tend to the customers while she cooks some of the meat, fish, and plantains she uses to make the dishes she sells. She has been in this business for two years, and during this time she has honed her cooking skills and improved her customer service. She likes her job because it allows her to stay physically active and, at the same time, generate financial income to cover home expenses. She wants to keep working and continue advancing her business in the future, be it by having a store selling larger quantities of sweets and some groceries or by expanding and improving the infrastructure of her food business.

This is her third loan with MFP, so she is grateful to all of the people who make these loans possible so that she can realize her plans. On the other hand, she promises to pay her installments on time. She is also very happy to belong to her communal bank and has seen how very responsible and supportive her fellow members are.

She will use the requested amount, 1,500 soles, to purchase some sweets like cookies, candy, and chocolates, and she will also buy ingredients, supplies, and some utensils to continue selling food and serve her customers more comfortably.
