Amelia
Amelia, 33, lives with her common-law husband, Hubert, and her mother. They live in their own house located on the main road. Amelia is very dedicated to everything she does and for 20 years has been working to support her family. One of her jobs is attending to her fuel sales business. "The advantage I have is that my house is close to the road and there are always customers who travel different routes.", she says. She also has a small kiosk where she sells food such as fruit, bread, fudge, cheese and other items that the travelers buy to take home with them.

Her busiest days are Friday, Saturday and Sunday because of all the vehicles driving through the city. She has been in this business for five year and says it is going well. Now she is requesting your help to buy more merchandise (groceries and fuel) to meet customer demand.

She belongs to the communal bank "Progreso Huayounioc" and this is her 10th loan through MFP, where she has always been punctual in her payments. She is one of the most active members of the group at this time.

Amelia will use the loan to buy groceries (cheese, fudge, fruit, soft-drinks and other items), as well as fuels such as gasoline.

Amelia tiene 33 años, convive con Hubert, su pareja, y su madre. Ellos viven en una casa propia ubicada cerca de la carretera central. Amelia es una mujer muy empeñosa en las actividades que realiza. Desde los 20 años empezó a trabajar para mantener a su familia. Una de sus funciones es atender su negocio de venta de combustibles, “la ventaja que tengo es que mi casa está cerca a la carretera, por eso siempre hay clientes que viajan por varias rutas”, menciona. A la vez cuenta con un pequeño kiosco donde ofrece comestibles como frutas, panes, manjar blanco de leche pura, quesos y otros que los viajeros llevan hacia sus ciudades de origen. Los días donde tiene más ingresos son los viernes, sábados y domingos, por la mayor cantidad de autos que recorren la ciudad. Lleva como 5 años en este negocio, y dice que le va muy bien, por eso ahora requiere de su apoyo para adquirir más mercadería (comestibles y combustible), para no descuidar a sus clientes. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Progreso Huayounioc”, y éste es su crédito número 10 con MFP, donde es muy puntual en sus cuotas. Hasta el momento es una de las socias más activas en el grupo.
