Carmen
Carman, 34, lives with Sajid; they have two children who are 10 and 6 years old. This family lives in a house of their own that they acquired with much effort. Carmen is a sweet woman. She provides laundry services in her establishment that’s been in operation 12 years. She works Monday to Saturday and people come by every day to leave their clothes to be laundered. “Clothes get dirty every day so there’s always work to be done and I do very well,” she comments humorously. When she opened the business she had only one machine, now she has three including a new one that allows her to do “dry cleaning.” She had to hire someone to help her do the work.

Because the washing machines are in constant use, they need maintenance in regular intervals which is why Carmen is asking for help to carry out this task. This is her third MFP loan and she commits to make her installment payments punctually. She’s happy with the way of working and with her fellow members in the “Los Pioneros de Capelo” communal bank because they are very sociable.

She will use the money to pay to have her washing machines serviced. She will spend about 1,000 soles on that and will use the rest to buy detergent and other supplies.

Carmen de 34 años convive con Sajid, con quien tiene 2 hijos de 10 y 6 años. Esta familia vive en una casa propia que adquirieron con mucho esfuerzo. Carmen es una mujer dulce. Se dedica a brindar servicios de lavandería en su establecimiento que funciona hace 12 años.
Ella trabaja de lunes a sábados, y todos los días cuenta con personas que visitan su local con sus prendas de vestir para realizar el lavado.
“Todos los días se ensucia la ropa, por eso siempre hay atención y me va bien”, comenta de buen humor.
Cuando empezó el negocio contaba con una máquina, ahora tiene 3, y una nueva que le sirve para realizar lavados “al seco”. Por ello tuvo que contratar a una persona, para que la apoye en sus labores.
Como las lavadoras siempre están en uso, necesitan el mantenimiento correspondiente cada cierto tiempo, por eso Carmen solicita de su apoyo para realizar esta tarea. Éste es su crédito número 3 con MFP, por eso se compromete en pagar las cuotas con puntualidad. Está contenta con el sistema de trabajo y con sus compañeros del banco comunal “Los Pioneros de Capelo”, porque son muy sociables.
Invertirá el dinero en el pago del mantenimiento de sus lavadoras. Destinará como 1000 soles en ello, y lo sobrante le servirá para adquirir detergentes y otros insumos.
