Jenny
Jenny, age 40, is a friendly and cheerful woman. She lives with her common-law partner Gabriel, who works at night as a security guard. They live in their own home with their three children who attend school. Jenny’s work consists of selling native dishes such as chicken stew, roasted chicken, adobo beef, and other foods. Her business is located in front of her home. Jenny has been in this line of work for 12 years and has done very well. She came up with the idea of starting a business after a friend suggested that they work together preparing a delicious menu of dishes. Soon after, she decided to partner with her friend and pursue this idea. Every afternoon, they go to the market to buy supplies that they need, such as rice, chicken, vegetables, potatoes, carrots, and condiments for preparing their various dishes. Jenny wakes up early each morning so that she can begin cooking and preparing food in time for serving breakfast and lunch. She believes her business is profitable since she lives in an area where there are several workers. The problem she had when she started her business was the lack of capital since she needed to buy tables, chairs, and supplies for preparing different dishes. Once she was able to collect the money she needed, she was able to buy these things. She hopes to continue growing and build a comfortable shop where she can serve her customers who come to buy her delicious dishes.


For this reason, Jenny is requesting her first loan from MFP. She hopes to get along well with the other members of her group since she is new. Jenny also hopes to complete her payments on time so that she can access additional loans in the future. This loan she requested in the amount of 500 PEN will be used to restock her business with rice, eggs, chicken, potatoes, and other supplies so that she will have what she needs to prepare her dishes.
