Florinda
Florinda is 36 years old. Together with her life partner, Raul, age 45, she is proud to have three children: 16 year-old Zayra, 13 year-old Kendy and 5 year-old Luis. They share their family experiences in an adobe home constructed with the support of her family. She initially worked together with her husband in agricultural work such as the production of organic cacao on some plots of land which she inherited from her family. Later, motivated by the high demand of clothing which she saw in her district, she decided to try her hand at the business, beginning with a dozen shirts and pants.

She has been in the business for almost three years now. With time she has succeeded in making this business an important source of income for her family, in conjunction with the cacao production carried out by Raul. Although she admits that travelling around the different zones of her district tires her out considerably, this work is, in the end, relaxing.

Nevertheless, she feels that this work is her calling: Thanks to her contact with a wide variety of people, she has formed many friendships as well as gained regular customers.

In order to increase her income she plans to buy merchandise in bulk. During subsequent weekends she will travel to the different areas in her district.

In the future she plans to open a clothing store with a store front that opens onto the street of her home.

This is her first loan with MFP. She is thankful and pleased to have this opportunity. She is also committed to a punctual repayment. On this first occasion she requires 1,000 nuevo soles to buy the merchandise, including long sleeve shirts, skinny pants and stockings.

Florinda tiene 36 años y con ella su compañero de vida Raúl de 45 años, tiene el orgullo de ser madre de 3 pequeños Zayra de 16 años, Kendy de 13 años y Luis de 5. Comparte sus vivencias familiares en una vivienda construida a base de Adobe que construyo con apoyo de su familia. Inicialmente desempeñaba junto a su esposo actividades agrícolas como el mantenimiento de cacao orgánico en unas parcelas que heredo de sus padres. Posteriormente motivada por la buena demanda de prendas de vestir al caceo que vio en su localidad optó por incursionar en el negocio iniciándose con una docena polos y pantalones.
Lleva casi 3 años en el negocio y con paso del tiempo ha logrado convertir este negocio como un buen componente para el crecimiento de su economía familiar paralelo a la producción cacaotera que desempeña Raúl. No obstante admite que recorrer diversas zonas de la su localidad la agotan considerablemente haciendo de este un trabajo finalmente reconfortante.
Sin embargo siente tener vocación para dicha actividad puesto que gracias a tratar con diversas personas ha logrado entablar muchas amistades así como clientes constantes.
A modo de incrementar sus ingresos planea realizar la compra de mercadería al por mayor para en los próximos fines de semana recorrer diversos puntos de su localidad.
Sus planes a futuro apuntan justamente en aperturar un negocio del rubro y ubicarlo en una tienda en ambiente que da para la calle en su domicilio. Este es su primer crédito con MFP, agradecida por la oportunidad se muestra muy contante y a la vez comprometida con el pago puntual del mismo.
En esta primera ocasión requiere contar con 1,000 nuevos soles para la compra de mercadería consistente en polos manga larga, pantalones semi pitillo y medias.
