Maria Del Rosario
43-year-old María is a hard-working, diligent woman who is kind and friendly in her treatment of others. She lives alongside her partner Pedro, who is a trader, and their 3-year-old son. The family live comfortably in their own home which they worked hard to obtain. María's business is selling food such as 'juanes' (a traditional Peruvian dish) and noodles in the mornings. She has a stall in the market near her home where she serves her customers in a kind and friendly manner, thereby gaining their loyalty.

María started out more than 10 years ago with her own capital, preparing her food in small quantities. Seeing how popular her business was becoming, she decided to keep going with it. She has her mom's help in preparing the food and serving the customers, and she shares the profits with her. She considers her business to be fairly profitable because she always sells everything she prepares. This makes her good profits.

María decided to start this business as she needed a job and an income so that she could cover her expenses and support her partner. Given the good results she is obtaining with her business, she has plans to keep going and to grow the business further. This will be her second loan with MFP. She is happy to know that she has access to financial support so that she can carry out her plans. In addition, she says that she feels very happy with her community bank as she knows most of the other members and she considers them to be kind and responsible people.

María will invest the sum of 1,000 soles that she has requested in buying cooking utensils such as pots, dishes, cups, etc. so that she can replace the ones she currently has. This will enable her to provide her customers with a better service.

María, de 43 años de edad, es una mujer trabajadora y empeñosa, además de ser amable y cordial en su trato a los demás. Vive junto a su conviviente Pedro quien es comerciante y su hijo de 3 años de edad. Viven cómodamente en su casa propia la cual adquirieron con el mucho esfuerzo y trabajo. La actividad que realiza María es la venta de comidas como juanes, tallarines y otros por las mañanas. Para eso cuenta con un puesto en el mercado cerca a su casa donde atiende de manera amable y cordial a sus clientes ganándose su preferencia.
Se inició hace más de 10 años con un capital propio y preparando en pequeñas cantidades, viendo la acogida que tenía su negocio, decidió continuar, y hasta el momento cuenta con el apoyo de su mamá en la preparación y atención de los clientes, compartiendo sus ganancias con ella.
Considera a su negocio bastante rentable porque casi siempre acaba todo lo que prepara para vender, dejándole buenas ganancias.
Decidió empezar con éste negocio debido a la necesidad de contar con un oficio y un ingreso económico para cubrir sus gastos y apoyar a su pareja.
Viendo los buenos resultados que está tendiendo con su negocio tiene planes de continuar y hacerlo crecer. Por tanto éste será el préstamo número 02 con la institución MFP, está contenta de saber que tendrá accesos un apoyo financiero para concretar sus planes.
Además comenta estar a gusto con su banco comunal pues conoce a la mayoría de sus integrantes y los considera ser personas amables y responsables.
Con el monto solicitado de 1000 nuevos soles, lo invertirá en la compra de utensilios para cocina como ollas, platos, vasos y otros, para renovar los que tiene, así brindar una mejor atención a sus clientes.
