Virginia is 52 and is a very happy, friendly, and entrepreneurial woman. She lives in a rented house with her husband, Jorge, who works extracting wood. Virginia works making regional dishes, which are juanes [a tamale-like dish], tacacho con cecina [balls of dough made from plantains served with pork cracklings and chorizo], patarashca [fish wrapped in a bijao leaf and grilled], and smoked fish. When Jorge is in the city, he helps her by shopping in the mornings as well as by helping her cook. She currently makes her sales in front of her house. She has had this business for 6 years, and she has earned 50% more profits, which gives her a lot of satisfaction. Some time ago, she was robbed, and the thieves took almost everything that she had acquired with so much effort and work. She decided to start again, and it is going well for her. Her clientele has increased, and she is getting ahead. She has thought about growing her business and acquiring her own location. This is why she is requesting her second loan from the institution. She hopes to receive 1,000 soles so she can buy plates, spoons, pots, supplies, rice, bijao leaves, fish, plantains, etc., to prepare her delicious regional dishes.
