Esther
Esther, who is 59 years old, is a cheerful and hardworking woman. She has always fought to excel in life. She is in a common-law marriage with Luis, who is a motorcycle mechanic and with whom she has 5 children, who are already grown and independent. She lives in her own house together with her spouse, 2 daughters, and the husband of one of her daughters. What she desires most is to continue working in order to improve her quality of life.

Esther’s work entails designing clothing and sewing for other people. Her work is in high demand in her neighborhood, as she is the only one who does this activity. She learned it when she was very young alongside her mother, and later she studied in an occupational education center. Now, she has her own shop, where she serves her customers with great patience.

She began with 1 sewing machine more than 44 years ago, and up to now, she has been working alone. She considers her business to be profitable enough, because the demand for her services leaves her with good earnings.

She enjoys her business, as she can count on a job and economic income. She still remembers when she started out; she had many doubts and difficulties, but through effort and a lot of work, she was able to overcome them. Apart from having this business, she also works renting rooms and business spaces.

In the future, she hopes to make her business more well-known and to continue growing. In order to do this, she is prepared to keep working. Therefore, this will be her 18th loan with the organization MFP. From her collaboration, she hopes to continue with her goals. In addition, she is very committed to once more paying off her quotas on time and in a responsible way. She feels very comfortable with her communal bank, since her friends from the group are very responsible and always support each other.

With the requested loan of 1500 nuevos soles, she will purchase materials to continue with her sewing work, like fabric, thread, buttons, zippers, elastic, and others - looking for low prices on her bulk purchases - in addition to buying materials to repair part of the infrastructure of the rooms that she rents out.
