Angela
Ángela, 54, is married to Juan, with whom she has three children, though only one lives with them. They live in their own home in the central forest. She is kind and friendly, and thanks to hard work, she opened a small business in her house eight years ago. Now the store is better stocked with quality products. “The business is going well. What I sell most are groceries and meats, especially chicken," she says. She buys perishable items every week and groceries and other products every month. Juan works as a bricklayer to earn income to support his family.

Ángela likes her work and has regular clients. Like every business owner that buys supplies on credit, at times she is not able to pay. Still, her business is a success, and she wants to keep it going but needs help. This is her 14th loan cycle with MFP, and she promises to make her payments on time. She belongs to the communal bank “Las Heliconias,” and she's happy that the members are responsible. With 1500 soles, she will be able to buy groceries such as rice, sugar, drums of oil, jams, canned milk, vegetables, and meats to stock her store.

Ángela de 54 años de edad, está casada con Juan con quien tiene 3 hijos, pero vive solo con uno de ellos. Ellos habitan un hogar propio ubicado en un distrito de la selva central. Con carácter afable y simpático, Ángela cuenta que, gracias a su empeño pudo instalar un pequeño negocio en su propia casa. Empezó hace 8 años, ahora su establecimiento está más surtido y con mayores productos. “Me va bien, lo que más se vende son los abarrotes y las carnes, principalmente la de pollo”, menciona. Para esta actividad tiene que adquirir mercadería cada semana, en caso de alimentos perecibles, y cada mes si se trata de abarrotes y otros.
Por su parte, Juan se dedica a las labores de albañilería, de esa manera aporta ingresos para el gasto diario de la familia.
Se siente tranquila con su trabajo, por haber conseguido clientes conocidos y confiables, pero como en todo negocio menciona que cuenta con compradores que llevan sus productos al crédito, y a veces no le pagan. A pesar de ello le va bien. Desea continuar con su negocio, por eso requiere de su apoyo. Éste sería su préstamo número 14 que obtendría de MFP, por eso se compromete a ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Las Heliconias” y se siente a gusto con socias responsables.
Con los 1500 soles podrá comprar abarrotes como sacos de arroz, de azúcar, bidones de aceite, conservas y leche enlatados, además de verduras y carnes, para expenderlos en su tienda.
