Lupita, 43, is a dynamic and enthusiastic woman. Her partner Edgardo, 44, has been her companion for a long time; they are the parents of Edgardo, 15, and Rubi, 6.

Every day, Lupita goes to the homes of her friends, neighbors and relatives to try to sell some of the various garments that she has to offer. When the customers gain her trust, she sells to them on credit and she collects on a daily, weekly, or in some cases, bi-weekly basis. She has been doing this work for 8 years, and what she likes the most is that it allows her to have time to also practice her profession as a teacher. Also, the sale of clothing provides an extra income for her household, allowing her to provide better living conditions for her family. She wants to keep working hard so that in the future she can have a boutique or store where she could sell her clothing.

This is her 16th loan with MFP, and she is very pleased to know that she has financial support so that she can continue to increase her working capital. She is certain that she will continue to be a good and responsible member of her communal bank with the loans she obtains. She enjoys belonging to her communal bank, because all of the members are very responsible and supportive of each other.

With the sum of 2,000 Peruvian soles that she requests, she will buy more clothing, including: blouses, shirts, pants, polo shirts for men and women, and other accessories so that she can continue to offer the newest designs and styles of clothing to her customers.

Lupita tiene 43 años, es una mujer dinámica y muy entusiasta. Su pareja es Edgardo, de 44 años, quien es su compañero durante mucho tiempo; son padres de Edgardo de 15 y Rubí de 6 años.
Todos los días Lupita se dirige a la casa de sus amigos, vecinos y familiares en busca de vender alguna de las diferentes prendas de vestir que tiene para ofrecer. Cuando los clientes se ganan su confianza los deja en crédito y va a cobrar diario, semanal o en algunos casos quincenal. Lleva realizando este trabajo por 8 años y lo que más le gusta es que le permite tener tiempo para poder ejercer su profesión como profesora. Además, la venta de ropa, le significa una entrada adicional para su economía y así puede dar mejores condiciones de vida a su familia. Desea seguir trabajando mucho y más adelante poder tener una boutique o un local comercial donde ofrecer sus prendas.

Este es el crédito número 16 que tiene con MFP y está muy contenta de saber que tiene un apoyo financiero para poder continuar aumentando su capital de trabajo. Está convencida que seguirá siendo una buena socia, responsable de los créditos obtenidos. Le gusta pertenecer a su banco comunal porque todos son responsables y muy solidarios entre sí.

Con el monto solicitado, 2000 nuevos soles, comprará más ropa: blusas, camisas, pantalones y polos para hombres y mujeres, y otros accesorios para seguir ofreciendo nuevos diseños y modelos a sus clientes.
