Paulina
Paulina is 45 years old and she lives with her husband and three children in her sister’s house. For 19 years she has sold food in one of the main streets of the city of Huancaya, and her children help her with this on many occasions. Preparing food in the mornings and evenings, she is dedicated to the sale of her meals. At the end of the day she has the satisfaction of having performed this work but she is often exhausted by the long hours preparing the food and after cleaning all of her utensils. But her few hours of sleep and her efforts have their rewards: as her earnings are very good. Thanks to Paulina’s good cooking skills, her clients are increasing and in the future she would like to rent a place to open a restaurant in.

This is the first time that she has had a loan with Microfinanzas PRISMA, and she is very enthusiastic about the work she will carry out in her group with her communal bank. The amount that she is asking for will be invested in the purchase of new plates and serving dishes, in addition to bags of groceries which are the basic ingredients for the preparation of her meals.

Paulina tiene 45 años, vive con su esposo y sus 3 hijos en la casa de su hermana. Desde hace 19 años vende comida en una de las principales calles de la ciudad de Huancayo, y en algunas ocasiones recibe la ayuda de sus hijos. Prepara los alimentos por las mañanas y por las tardes se dedica a la venta de sus platos, terminando el día tiene la satisfacción de haber realizado este trabajo, que en muchas veces llega a ser agotador por las largas horas de preparación de los alimentos y luego la limpieza de todos sus utensilios. Pero sus pocas horas de sueño y su esfuerzo tienen sus recompensas, pues las ganancias que obtiene son muy buenas. Debido a la buena sazón que tiene Paulina, sus clientes están aumentando y para el futuro desea arrendar un local para poder abrir un restaurante. Es la primera vez que tiene un préstamo con MFP, y está muy entusiasmada por el trabajo que va a realizar en su grupo dentro de su banco comunal. La cantidad que está solicitando será invertida en la compra de nuevos platos y cubiertos, además de sacos de abarrotes que son los ingredientes básicos para la preparación de sus comidas.
