Maura is 50 years old and is a very hard working and earnest woman; She is jovial and sociable. She is separated from her three children's father. She now lives with her children and daughter in law.

Her business is in the sale of basic groceries like rice, sugar, noodles, oils and other foods. She has a store in her house for this work. She began more than 10 years ago with her own capital, seeing the necessity of having an additional income and she works it by herself. She likes it because it allows her to be in the comfort of her house, care for her children and in her free time, do other work. On the other hand she does not like it when her customers request to pay on credit because she has had bad experiences with this type of sale. Because of this, all her sales are made on the spot so she can quickly see her earnings. She has plans to expand her business and continue growing.

This is her fifth loan with the MFP institution, with which she hopes to solidify her plans. She is therefore committed to fulfilling her payments. With the amount requested of 2500 nuevos soles, she will invest in the purchase of more groceries (rice, oils, sugar and others) at wholesale and in large quantities.

Maura tiene 50 años, es una mujer muy trabajadora y empeñosa, además de jovial y sociable. Está separada del padre de sus tres hijos. Actualmente vive con sus hijos y su nuera.
Su negocio es la venta de abarrotes de primera necesidad como arroz, azúcar, fideos, aceites y otros comestibles. Para eso cuenta con una bodega instalada en su vivienda. Empezó hace más de 10 años con un capital propio, viendo la necesidad de contar con un ingreso adicional, y hasta el momento lo realiza sola. Le gusta, pues le permite estar en la comodidad de su casa, atender a sus hijos y el tiempo libre lo pueda emplear en otras actividades. Por otro lado, no le gusta cuando le solicitan crédito, pues ya tuvo malas experiencias con este tipo de venta, por lo que todas sus ventas son al contando y así puede ver más rápido su ganancia. Tienen planes de implementar más su negocio y así seguir creciendo.

Este es su préstamo número 5 con la institución MFP, por lo que espera concretar sus planes. Por tanto, se compromete a cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas.
Con el monto solicitado, de 2500 nuevos soles, invertirá en la compra de más abarrotes (arroz, aceites, azúcar y otros), en mayor volumen, y al por mayor.
