Mely
Mely is a single woman with a big spirit for self-improvement and two big motivations in life, her two children, Estefano, 12, and Lucero, 11.

As the fruit of her labor, she's proud of having finished building her house of solid materials. Motivated by the desire to improve her quality of life, she started working in an ice-cream shop where she learned the trade of making ice cream, the consumption of which is huge in town because it's a tropical area.

She says she likes her job a lot because the preparation technique is enjoyable and she feels she has a vocation for sweets and pastries. She has been in the field for almost 10 years, and up to now she has planned to go out on her own and open her own ice-cream making and soda-fountain business in a space she recently managed to rent.

To achieve her goal, she's applying to her financial institution to have the corresponding support. In the future she hopes to make her business profitable and continue with opening other places in various parts of the region, which she considers difficult but not impossible. As she says, with work and effort it's possible to move mountains.

Currently she wants to have 3,000 nuevos soles [PEN] to supplement her capital and buy decorations, tables, and other things so she can open her own ice cream shop.

Mely es una mujer con amplio espíritu de superación, soltera y con dos grandes motivos de vida que son sus dos hijos Estefano de 12 años y Lucero de 11.
Como fruto de su trabajo constante tiene el orgullo de haber culminado la construcción de su vivienda a base de material noble. Impulsada por el deseo de superar su calidad de vida se inicio como trabajadora en una heladería en donde aprendió el oficio de la preparación de helados cuyo consumo es masivo en la localidad por ser una zona tropical.
Comenta que le agrada mucho su trabajo puesto que la técnica de preparación le parece entretenida y siente tener vocación para los dulces y postres.
Lleva casi 10 años en el rubro y hasta la actualidad tiene pensado independizarse y aperturar su propio negocio para la preparación de helados así como una fuente de soda en un local que logro alquilar desde hace poco.
A manera de cumplir su objetivo acude a su entidad financiera y contar con el respectivo respaldo.
A futuro espera consolidar su negocio como rentable y proceder con la inauguración de otros locales en diversos puntos de su región lo cual considera no es nada fácil más no imposible y que con trabajo y esfuerzo es posible mover montañas según comenta. En esta ocasión desea contar con 3,000 nuevos soles para complementar su capital y realizar la compra de adornos, mesas, entre otros. De esta manera aperturar su propia heladería.
