Rocio
Rocío is a friendly and hardworking 51-year-old woman. She is separated from her common-law husband of many years. Currently she lives in her own house that she built next to her ex-partner. Three of their four children live with her, and day after day they fight together to create a better life for themselves.

She is a woman who has always worked to get ahead. She is involved in various activities to generate income, such as washing clothes, selling used clothes and selling soft drinks on the weekends. However, her most important activity is focused on food sales. She rents a space within a government building and offers various dishes that are well-received by her customers.

She makes the most delicious Peruvian dishes, such as “arroz con pollo” (chicken with rice), “papa a la huancaína" (potatoes with a special sauce) “lomo saltado” (salted beef loin), “ají de gallina” (hen with chili peppers) and others. These are always served with delicious drinks such as “chicha morada” (a rice and fruit-based drink) or “aguajina”, which is made from palm tree fruit. She has been doing this work for five years and has help from her children.

What Rocío likes most about her work is that she is able to set her own schedule so that she can manage her time and dedicate it to various activities. Her business is progressing because she likes what she does, and she hopes that in time she will be able to have a modest restaurant in which she can provide greater comfort to her customers.

This is her sixth loan with MFP, and she is thankful for the opportunity and faith that the institution has put in her. She promises to comply with her loan repayment schedule. She is also glad to be part of her communal bank, since the members are responsible and supportive. The funds she is seeking (1800 nuevos soles) will be invested in various ingredients that she needs in order to make the food that she sells. This will include rice, potatoes, meats, condiments, oil and other items.
