Nicolaza's story

Nicolaza is 46, a hard-working and determined woman, who lives in her own home. What she wants most in her life is to get ahead.

Her business is located in the Commercial Center Number 2 (an important market in the city of Juliaca). Her food stand is very popular with people who want to have delicious food. Her specialty is rice with eggs and fried potatoes, a dish which has become very well-known among the patrons.
What she likes most about her work is cooking: she has loved it since she was a child. She’s been working in this for 7 years and says that the hardest part is also taking care of the customers at the same time.

With time Nicolaza hopes to raise the necessary money to open a restaurant where she can offer better service to her customers.

This is the fourth loan that Nicolaza has had with MFP. She knows that she has to use the money well if her business is going to improve. In her communal bank she is one of the happiest and most active members. With the thousand new sols that she is asking for, she will buy more ingredients to make delicious food.
