Macedonia
Macedonia is a single, 39-year-old mother, sacrificing herself for her three children: Niker, Jennifer and Brayan. Like every independent mother, she has the desire to see her children complete a higher education and that would make her feel very proud.

They live together in a house of good material that she was able to build alone with effort and dedication.

Previously, she made a living doing agricultural activities, but she was presented with an opportunity in the commercial area which was the buying and selling of wood blocks extracted from forests which are constantly reforested.

She has performed this work for 10 years, and throughout this time she has been generating good earnings which have also allowed her to travel to different places in the country to personally deliver her merchandise.

However, one of the things that has made her normal business performance difficult was providing goods to local municipalities who had serious delays in their payments and caused her serious inconveniences.

She plans to continue doing this work, which is how she will acquire a truck for transport, since she currently hires private transporters, and as she says, the payment for freight is expensive.

When the extraction season begins, she must target those areas where she can make the bulk purchase of the wood blocks and make payment in full before other vendors get to them ahead of her.

This is her 12th loan, and she states that these loans have always been a great help and in response to receiving them she made her payments in a punctual manner. The 2,000 nuevos soles she requested will supplement her working capital which serves for the purchase of blocks of wood that will later be marketed across the country.

Macedonia es una mujer madre soltera de 39 años, abnegada a su vez de sus 3 hijos, Niker, Jennifer y Brayan. Como toda madre independiente tiene el deseo de ver a sus hijos culminar sus estudios superiores y así sentirse muy orgullosa. Juntos habitan en una vivienda de material noble que logró construir ella sola con el esfuerzo y dedicación. Anteriormente se dedicada a las actividades agrícolas, pero se le presento una oportunidad en el área comercial, que es la compra, y venta de bloques de madera que son extraídos de bosques constantemente reforestados. Desempeña esta labor desde hace 10 años, pues a lo largo de este tiempo le fue generando buenas ganancias permitiéndole también viajar a distintos puntos del país para personalmente realizar la entrega de la mercadería.
No obstante una de las cosas que dificultaban su normal desempeño comercial era el de proveer a municipios locales quienes presentaban serias demoras en el pago correspondiente generándole serios inconvenientes.
Tiene planeado seguir desempeñándose en este negocio, así logrará adquirir una camioneta para el transporte,ya que actualmente contrata a transportistas particulares, pues según comenta, el pago por el flete es costoso.
Al iniciar una temporada de extracción debe dirigirse a las zonas en donde realiza la compra al por mayor de los bloques realizando el pago en su totalidad antes que otros comercializadores se le adelanten. Este es su préstamo número 12, comenta que siempre le fueron de gran ayuda y en respuesta a ello cumplió de manera puntual con el pago de sus cuotas. Con los 2,000 nuevos soles complementará su capital de trabajo destinados en la compra de bloques de madera que posteriormente serán comercializados en distintos puntos del país.
