Paulina
Paulina is 37 years old, is widowed and lives with her 3 young children in a rented house. She has been selling potatoes for one year. At the beginning she would set up in the passageways of a market near her house to sell her product. Her economic situation at that time was not good, but with persistence and dedication she has been able to make much progress, growing her inventory little by little and as well being able to rent a kiosk in the central market of her city. There, she generally works in the mornings in order to be with her young ones in the afternoon. During the peak sales times of the year she has decided to run her kiosk all day during weekends. There is also more work during harvest months (March and April). The stability of her business has allowed Paulina to plan her future, and as such she would like to be a large potato distributor in her city. This is the third time that she is requesting a loan through MFP. She has been with her communal bank nearly 18 months, where she is one of those who promotes unity of her group, who perseveres in spite of the difficulties that arise, and who also enjoys working as a team. Paulina is requesting this loan to buy wholesale sacks of potatoes. Each sack costs between 100 and 150 soles and each contains 100 kilos of product.
