Zarela
Zarela, 40, is a pleasant and hardworking woman and a fighter. She's married to Antonio and with him has three children, two of them adults and independent. Currently she lives in her own house with her husband and her younger daughter, chanelling all her effort and sacrifice into improving their quality of life.

Zarela's job is selling sweets, beverages, fruit, and food that children request in the school where she works. She pays a monthly rent on a small sales stall inside the school. She works there from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. She has had this business for more than three years and always has done it alone. What she likes most about her job is the freedom she has to do other things, such as taking care of her daughter and helping her with her academic work. She hopes to increase the variety of products she sells and continue on the road to success and prosperity for the well-being of her family.

This is her second loan with MFP, for which she thanks all the people who make it possible to continue working with better results. She also pledges once again to make her payments punctually, just as she did with her previous loan. In addition, she likes to be part of her communal bank because all the members are responsible and very supportive people.

With the requested amount (1000 soles [PEN]), she'll make bulk purchases of sweets, beverages, fruit, and other products that children eat and drink. This way she hopes to keep her income stable.
