Lucila
Lucila, 44, is in a committed relationship with her partner with whom she has six children who are 25, 24, 20, 19, 16 and 9 years of age. They all live with her although not all of them depend on her entirely for their food and schooling. She has her own home where she lives with her six children and partner. She works a lot to provide a better quality of life for her family. Lucila's work consists of food sales. She has her own location which she obtained after many years of effort. She started off selling from the sidewalk in front of her house where she set up a table, a pair of chairs and a modest cooking appliance where she attended daily to the customers who would happen by to eat.

Currently she has a commodious location with a large number of tables where she offers a greater variety of dishes characteristic of Peruvian cuisine. Formerly she worked alone and these days she has two additional persons working alongside her as well as her husband. She's been working for two years and is happy because it is going well for her and so she is able to generate a considerable income for supporting her household with its basic expenses. She likes her work since in the mornings she is able to use part of her time for other primary activities in her home and handle other functions that are also necessary for the functioning of her business.

Fortunately she has customers every day since she is located in a highly accessible spot for the public. This allows her to increase her earnings daily and provide better living conditions for her family. She is still in the process of expanding and remodeling her establishment and hopes to finish within the medium term. This is her 13th loan with MFP. She is very happy knowing that she has financial support that guarantees her ability to continue working with much assurance. She for her part commits to continue being a prompt member with her payments as she has done with previous loans she had. Likewise she feels comfortable belonging to her communal bank since all of its members are very responsible and mutually supportive.

With the requested amount of 2,500 Peruvian soles she will purchase ingredients, supplies, utensils and drinks such as soft drinks and beer in order to continue her work, since she wishes to keep her customers happy and better attend to them.
