Horlinda
Horlinda is 55 years old and lives with her husband in the house that they inherited from her parents. Hard work and optimism, traits that she clearly displays, have helped her set up not only a general store, but also some grape farms in the city of Cañete—a city that is located to the north of the capital. She has been working alongside her husband because she manages the business that she set up there. Herlinda is showing pictures of her general store in Cañete. She is now setting up a business in Lima, where she must travel every two weeks, since sales are good during this summer season. For over 20 years, Horlinda has been in business, which has served as a way to provide an education for her children who are now professionals and are grateful for their mother’s efforts, so they try to cooperate with her. Nevertheless, she needs to increase her capital so that she can turn her general store into a family business that her children and grandchildren will inherit. This is her tenth loan with MFP since she is one of the women who have been working with the institute since it was founded in this part of the city. Horlinda needs 2500.00 PEN in order to install some public telephones in her general store so that she can increase her clientele.

Horlinda tiene 55 años, vive con su esposo en la casa que heredaron de sus padres hace muchos años atrás. El trabajo y su optimismo son rasgos que son muy evidentes en ella y que la ayudaron a tener no tan solo el negocio de abarrotes, sino algunas chacras de cultivo de uvas en la ciudad de Cañete (cuidad que se encuentra en el norte de la capital) donde viene trabajando junto a su esposo pues ella administra el negocio que instaló ahí (en la foto Herlinda nos muestra las imágenes de su bodega en Cañete) y que está iniciando ahora en la ciudad de Lima, lugares donde tiene que movilizarse cada quincena, pues las ventas son muy buenas por la temporada de verano. Es así que Horlinda viene trabajando más de 20 años en esta actividad que le sirvió como alternativa para educar a sus hijos quienes ahora son profesionales y agradecen el esfuerzo de su madre y tratan de cooperar con ella. Sin embargo, desea incrementar el capital de su tienda y convertirla en un negocio familiar que sea herencia para sus hijos y nietos. Este es su décimo préstamo con MFP, pues es una de las señoras que acompaña a la institución desde su creación como agencia en esta parte de la ciudad. Horlinda necesita 2500 soles para instalar teléfonos públicos en su bodega y así tener mayor demanda y clientela.
