Marcela
Marcela is 53 years old she is a happy and enthusiastic woman. She is married to Marcos with whom she has 3 children who are adults. At present she and her husband live by themselves in the central jungle. With a lot of hard work, Marcela opened a small grocery store some 7 years ago where she sells basic household goods. Early in the mornings the inhabitants of the area visit her store since they know it is well stocked and she needs to invest to buy merchandize. “To have everything in the display cabinets is my secret, from groceries, refreshments, meats, fruits, vegetables, that is why I never lack customers,” she proudly says.

While she cares for her customers she also makes and mends clothing. She gains extra income to keep for whatever emergency. If that is not enough she also buys and sells coffee. Marcela is very dynamic despite her age. She needs your help to keep her business; this is her ninth loan with MFP that she will obtain thanks to your support. This is why she promises to be punctual with her loan quotas and says that is happy with her communal bank, “Light of the Future” for the unified work that they do.

She will use the money to buy merchandize for her small grocery store like panettone and some toys that she will sell during the Christmas season.

Marcela de 53 años, es una mujer contenta y entusiasta. Está casada con Marcos con quien tiene 3 hijos, ya mayores. Ahora ella y su esposo viven solos en una localidad de la selva central. Con mucho esfuerzo, Marcela hace 7 años abrió una pequeña tienda de comestibles, donde vende productos de primera necesidad. Desde las primeras horas del día, los habitantes de la localidad visitan su tienda, pues ellos sabes, lo surtida que se mantiene, para ello tiene que invertir en la compra de mercaderías. “Tener de todo en las vitrinas es mi secreto, desde abarrotes, bebidas, carnes, frutas, verduras, por eso no me faltan clientes”, comenta orgullosa.
Mientras atiende, también se dedica a la confección y remiendo de prendas de vestir. De esa manera obtiene ingresos extras para cualquier eventualidad. Y como si fuera poco también se dedica ala compra y venta de café. Es muy dinámica a pesar de su edad. Ella requiere de su ayuda para continuar con su negocio. Éste es su crédito número 9 con MFP, que obtendría gracias a su ayuda. Por esa razón promete ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas. Por su parte menciona sentirse a gusto con su banco comunal “Luz del futuro”, por el trabajo solidario que desempeñan.
Invertirá el dinero en la compra de mercadería para su tienda de comestibles, así como panetones y algunos juguetes que expenderá por temporada navideña.
