Gladys
Gladys, 37, lives with the father of her two children who are 9 and 3 years old. They all live in a rented house located in a district in the central jungle. Gladys is a persevering, constant woman. She’s been buying coffee at wholesale for nine years. To do so, she and her spouse travel to various indigenous communities to the very fields and buys several sacks of dry coffee at considerable prices. “Once acquiring my product, I sort it to sell to coffee cooperatives; the business is profitable,” she mentions. The growers save on transportation costs and the cooperatives avoid having to do the selection task. Gladys is an intermediary and she strives to do her job well. She set aside space at home to store her products.

The months when sales are best are from April to August but she makes her buying trips every day of the year because she feels every day without work is a wasted day. Gladys needs your support to buy more coffee beans and this is why she’s asking for your help. This will be MFP loan #2. She’s grateful for the trust placed in the previous loan and she commits to make her monthly payments punctually. She will use the requested 3,500 soles to buy several sacks of coffee and will also pay the shipping charges of said merchandise.

Gladys de 37 años, convive con el padre de sus dos hijos de 9 y 3 años de edad. Ellos habitan una casa alquilada ubicada en un distrito de la selva central. Gladys es una mujer perseverante y constante. Hace 12 años se dedica a la compra y venta de café al por mayor. Para ello recorre al lado de su pareja, distintas comunidades nativas, a los mismos campos de cultivos y adquiere varios sacos de café seco a precios considerables.
“Después de adquirir mi producto, lo selecciono para después ofrecerlos a cooperativas cafetales, el negocio es rentable”, menciona. Los agricultores ahorran en el gasto de traslado, y las cooperativas ya se evitan el trabajo de seleccionarlos. Gladys es una intermediaria y se esfuerza por realizar bien su trabajo.
Ella acondicionó un espacio en la casa que habita para acopiar sus productos.
Los meses de buenas ventas son de abril hasta agosto. Pero cada día del año realiza sus viajes para adquirir su mercadería, porque considera que cada día sin trabajar es un día perdido.
Gladys requiere de su apoyo para comprar más granos de café, por ello solicita de su ayuda. Éste es su crédito número 2 con MFP. Agradece la confianza en la oportunidad anterior y se compromete en pagar con puntualidad las cuotas mensuales.
Invertirá los 3500 soles solicitados en la compra de varios sacos de café, además pagará los servicios de flete (traslado), de dicha mercadería.
