Marcelina, 50, and her husband Cornelio, 46, had three children, now grown and on their own. What she most wants now is to have a peaceful old age.

When she was very young she began to earn a living working in various ways, but for five years she has sold clothing in a stall in the market of her town. What she likes most about her job is advising her customers about the garments that look best on them, because this way she amuses herself and cultivates the loyalty of her buyers. Marcelina uses the MFP loans to buy merchandise and increase her stock.

With this loan of 1,500 nuevos soles [PEN], she will travel to Lima (the capital) to acquire more clothing, preferably light because she lives in the very hot jungle area.

Marcelina tiene 50 años, su esposo es Cornelio, de 46 años, con el que tuvo tres hijos, ya mayores e independiente. Lo que más desea ahora es tener una vejez tranquila.

Desde muy joven empezó a ganarse la vida trabajando de distintas formas. Pero desde hace 5 años se dedica a la venta de ropa y su puesto del mercado de su localidad. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es aconsejar a sus clientas sobre las prendas que mejor le queden, ya que de esta manera se distrae y fideliza a sus compradores. Marcelina utiliza los préstamos de MFP para comprar mercadería y aumentar su stock.

Con los 1,500 nuevos soles de este crédito viajará a Lima (capital), para adquirir más ropa, de preferencia liviana, ya que su zona es de selva, muy caliente.
