Lilia
Lilia is 42 years old, and has lived with her husband for 20 years, although they still haven't formalised their relationship. But they have three children, the eldest two live elsewhere in order to study - they're currently living on land that her mother-in-law gave them while they acquired their own. Four years ago Lilia and her husband decided to set-up a business buying and selling fruits and in all this time they have realised that it is very profitable. While her husband continues to work with the citrus fruits (previously they only worked growing fruit), she selects the fruits and prepares the packing of the product, that she takes three times a week to a market in Lima. Lilia wants to make the most of her business, with the aim of buying and building their own house in a bigger town. On the days when she goes to sell their products she earns between 150 and 200 soles, from which she pays the rent, the hire of her stall and buys food for her home. During all this her husband prepares oranges from their land which had been planted 5 years ago and today they harvest the fruits of these plants in order to pay for the further education of her children. This is her 5th loan con MFP, of which she has been able to make repayments without any delay. The money which she is asking for will be invested in the purchase of fruits in big quantities so that later they can sell them boxed-up, as this way they'll earn more than normal.
