Bertha
Bertha, 39, lives with Fernando with whom she has two children aged 15 and 18 years old. They all live in their own house located in an indigenous community. Bertha is a woman who works hard in all her endeavors, her main job is selling basic goods such as rice, sugar, tinned products and other foodstuffs. She has been carrying out this activity for approximately 7 years and she says that it is going well, provided that it is well-stocked and she buys more provisions such as meat and vegetables. Bertha says, "People buy more meat and vegetables every day. You can earn a lot with those products." As she is a woman who doesn't conform, she also works in agriculture, producing cocoa. Her husband spends most of his time working in these activities.

Every month, she makes sales at her stall, and that is why this time she is seeking a loan to buy more merchandise. This is her third loan with Microfinanzas Prisma. Bertha is committed to meeting the monthly repayments punctually. She is part of the "Nuevo Amanecer de la Aldea" communal bank, and the work with the savings pleases her.

With the 1,000 Peruvian Nuevos Soles loan, Bertha will be able to buy more merchandise to stock her store with products such as fizzy drinks, beer, groceries and other foodstuffs.

Bertha de 39 años convive con Fernando con quien tiene 2 hijos de 18 y 15 años. Todos ellos viven en una casa propia ubicada en una comunidad nativa. Bertha es una mujer que se esfuerza en todas las actividades que realiza. Su principal actividad es la venta de productos de primera necesidad como arroz, azúcar, productos enlatados, y otros comestibles. Lleva en esta actividad como 7 años, y menciona que le va bien, siempre y cuando surta y compre más víveres, especialmente productos como carnes y verduras.
“Las personas compran más carnes y verduras, todos los días. Se gana muy bien con esos productos”, menciona.
Y como ella es una mujer que no se conforma, también se dedica a la agricultura, con la producción de cacao. Su esposo dedica el mayor de su tiempo en estas labores.
Todos los meses hay ventas en su puesto de ventas, por eso esta vez solicita un préstamo para comprar más mercadería. Éste es su crédito número 3 con MFP. Se compromete en pagar con puntualidad las cuotas mensuales. Pertenece al banco comunal “Nuevo Amanecer de la Aldea”, y le agrada el trabajo con los ahorros.
Con los 1000 soles del crédito podrá comprar más mercadería para surtir los productos en su tienda, como bebidas gaseosas, cervezas, abarrotes, y otros comestibles.
