Rebeca's story

Rebeca, 40, is a hard-working woman who is originally from Huancavelica but has lived in the city of Huancayo for 12 years. She and her husband, Edilberto, and their small son live with her parents-in-law in the town of El Tambo. She is a teacher by profession and works teaching adults how to read and write. Also, she is involved in other activities, mainly raising guinea pigs and selling different flavored gelatin. For six years she has been in business and on her farm provides good care for the guinea pigs which she sells every weekend. She selects the ones she will sell and delivers them to the meat merchants in her town.

All of her jobs benefit the home economy and allow her to manage her own time. This is why she wants to continue working to grow economically. She belongs to the communal bank "Mujeres Victorianas" and this is her sixth loan through MFP. She is very happy with the financial support and has always be responsible in her payments. She enjoys being a part of the communal bank because all the members are responsible and supportive. If she receives your help, Rebeca plans to use the loan to buy productive guinea pigs to increase the quantity of animals she has.
