Jessi
Jessi is 33 years old, and is a good kind woman who has lived with Marcial for several years. They have three children who are 15, 8, and 2 years old. Her family is what motivates her to better herself every day. She has her own house, but at the moment she is living temporarily with her mother-in-law. She works hard to obtain a better quality of life for all her family.

Jessi works selling regional products including bananas, cassavas, coconas, bijao leaves, and limes. How much she sells of each product depends on what is in season, as some of the products are more difficult to get in certain months and, on the other hand, sometimes she has an abundance of a particular product. She has a stall in one of the main markets in the city, and because so many people pass by, she sells a lot during the day. She has been doing this work for four years, and she has always done it on her own.

She really likes her work because she feels free and independent, and she also makes good money which makes her feel at ease. Her main goal is to expand her business and start to sell her products at wholesale by sending them to other cities. She is sure that this will increase her income considerably. This is her third loan with MFP and she is very happy with the financial support she is receiving because it makes her confident that her business is going to grow. She pledges to continue making her repayments on time and as agreed. She is delighted to be a member of her communal bank because everyone is responsible and supportive.

With the requested amount of 1500 soles, she will buy a larger quantity of bananas and cassavas, because there is a high demand for these products at this time of year.
