Maribel
Maribel, 34, is a woman who has a strong desire to get ahead and support her family. She lives with Lino, who is a fisherman and is the father of her 5 children: Kety, 15, Marjory, 11, Karol, 8, Cintia, 5, and Mateo, who is 3 years old. It is for them that she exerts herself, so that she can provide them with a better quality of life. The family lives together in their own home, which was purchased with a lot of effort.

Maribel has a business selling fresh fish. She starts working very early when she goes to the port to receive the fish that her partner has caught, so that she can later sell it from her stall in the busiest market in the city. She provides her customers with friendly service, knowing that in this way she will gain their preference so that they will keep buying from her.

Maribel started this business more than 5 years ago with her own capital, which she invested in fishing supplies for her partner so that she could sell the fish that he caught. Later, seeing how well her business was received, she started increasing her sales. She considers her business to be quite profitable, because of the good earnings she gets and the strong demand for her products, particularly at times when there is a shortage and she can raise her prices.

Maribel decided to start up her business so that she could support her partner with the household expenses and support her large family. Now, seeing the good results that she has, she wants to keep the business going and continue with it, as it is her only means of generating income.

This will be Maribel's 4th loan with MFP, and she expects that with this small loan she will be able to meet her goals. Also, she comments that she enjoys working with her communal bank, because she considers it to be a group of people who are united and cooperative. With the sum of 1,200 Peruvian soles that she requests, she will purchase fishing supplies for her partner, such as: nets, harpoons, traps, fishing lines, fish hooks, and other supplies. This way, she can obtain her main product, which is fresh fish. She is hoping to increase the volume of fish that she sells, so that she can increase her earnings.
