Kelly
Kelly, age 31 is a good, friendly, and very hard-working woman. She co-habitates with Victor, who is the father of her two children, ages 1 and 5 respectively. She lives in her mother's house, where she was allocated a space to live with her family.

Kelly, as her primary job, sells food. She sells in the path in front of her mother's house. She does her job daily, and during the day puts up different menus for sale. At night she sells roasted chicken, while every weekend she makes ceviche [a seafood dish typically made with raw fish marinated in citrus juice]. She confirms that her main dish that delights her customers daily is the well-known regional stew called "pango," which has a base of dried, salted fish with pieces of cooked plantains.

Her earnings from all of her work are very good, and this motivates her to keep going. She's been in this business for more than two years, and does it with the help of her mother and siblings. For the future of her business, she hopes to have a restaurant where she can offer all her stews during the entire week, and not just at different times on specific days as she does now. Even though she has gained experience in this line of work, she feels that it's still difficult to please her customers because she doesn't prepare many dishes to choose from. However, she hopes to do so shortly with a big investment.

This is her second loan with the institution MFP; she appreciates everyone who has made this loan possible, as with it she feels confident advancing her business. On the other hand, she's very happy with her community bank and considers it a united and supportive group.

With the amount requested (800 PEN), she will buy a cook top to prepare "carnes asadas" [grilled or barbecued meats], update some utensils, and furthermore buy some ingredients and goods to continue working in food sales.
