Ercilia
Cheerful and hard-working is Ercilia, 36, who lives with Paulino, the father of her two children. They both look out for the welfare of the household through their efforts. The wooden house they live in was given to them by her parents. She is involved in agriculture but discovered a business opportunity which was to open a grocery store. She established it four years ago thanks to a small amount of money she had saved and also with the help of Paulino, who put up almost all of the necessary shelving to display products in a room of the house. Since then she is very happy with the work she does as a merchant. This has made her very popular in the neighborhood where she has many customers and enjoys a profitable business.

Lately she has realized that she can expand the space to make it more attractive and add more variety of products. So she is planning to buy another shelf and order more products such as canned fish, which is in much demand. Then she wants to take advantage of an extra space she has at home where she could sell clothing, since she has observed a rising demand in this sector.

This is her fourth loan, and her good credit record was her best asset for getting MFP to trust her and increase the amount of the loan. She plans to use the 3,000 PEN to buy shelving and wholesale groceries for her store. These include canned fish, mainly, and popular cereals, such as rice and wheat.

Alegre y laboriosa, así es Ercilia una mujer de 36 años quien al lado de Paulino, padre de sus 2 hijos velan por el bienestar del hogar a base de esfuerzo. Poseen una casa hecha de madera que le fue cedido por sus padres. Dedicada a actividades agrícolas, halló una oportunidad de negocio, que es el tener una tienda de abarrotes, dicho negocio fue posible hace 4 años gracias a un pequeño dinero que tenia ahorrado y tambien, el apoyo de Paulino, quien se encargo de armar casi toda las estructuras necesarias para la exhibición de los productos en un espacio habilitado de su vivienda. Desde entonces muy contenta desempeña su trabajo de comerciante, pues esto le valió para ser hoy muy conocida en su barrio logrando captar mas clientela, haciendo de su negocio aun más rentable. Últimamente vio que es posible realizar una ampliación de su local para hacerlo mas vistoso y añadir variedad extra de productos, es por ello que tiene planeado realizar la compra de otro andamio y solicitar mas productos dentro de los cuales se encuentran las conservas de pescado muy solicitado por su clientela. En los posterior planea sacarle provecho a un espacio adicional de su vivienda para desempeñar la venta de prendar de vestir debido a que observo una buena demanda en ese rubro. Este es su cuarto crédito, la puntualidad fue su mejor herramienta para lograr que MFP confíe en ella incrementándole el capital de trabaj. Con los 3,000 nuevos soles realizará la compra de andamios y víveres al por mayor para expandir su negocio , dentro de los cuales se encuentran las conservas de pescado en su mayoría así como los cereales mas consumidos como el arroz , el trigo ,etc.
