Lenny
Lenny, who is 35 years old, is a friendly, hardworking and enterprising woman. She is separated from her partner, who is the father of her only child (a son of 17), and lives with her mother, her two brothers, her son and her sister-in-law in the house which was bequeathed to them by her father. Our friend Lenny's main business activity is selling one of Peru's most traditional dishes: "Cebiche". At different times of year, she also devotes some of her free time to selling women's, men's and children's clothing. Her seafood restaurant is a family business which has been in existence for 11 years and she serves her customers there in a friendly way, helped by her mother, her sister-in-law, and her brothers. Since she set up the business, she has achieved great success because her sales have always been positive. From time to time she sells items of clothing. She likes her work very much because it keeps her busy and enables her to generate the income she needs to cover her personal expenses and those of her son whom she loves very much. So great has been the success she has achieved in her restaurant that she now wants to equip it with better furniture and other fittings to provide comfort for her customers. This is her thirteenth loan from MFP and so she is grateful to all those who make it possible for her to continue to pursue her goals. Furthermore, she is once again very committed to make her repayments on time, as was the case for her other loans. She is very happy to belong to her communal bank because all its members are very kind, friendly and caring. She plans to spend the loan amount requested (S/. 1800) on 4 tables with matching chairs, as well as various ingredients which she needs to continue her seafood restaurant business.
