Martina
Martina, 36, is a very sincere and hardworking woman. She lives in a rented house along with her two children: Antony, who is 11, and Candy, who is 2 years old. She wants to give them a good education. Martina has an itinerant business selling clothing; each day she goes through public and private institutions in her city looking for customers who want to buy something that she sells. She brings the clothing from another city, and for this reason the fashions that she sells are very new and eye-catching. What she likes most about her job is advising her customers about the clothing styles that are in fashion. She has been carrying out this activity for 3 years, and she considers that the most difficult part is to have to walk all day in search of customers. In the future, she hopes to have sufficient money to open up a store where she can sell at her leisure with greater comfort. This is her first loan with MFP, and she is ready to work very hard in order to make her payments. In her communal bank she is very well liked, since she always brings a lot of happiness to the meetings. With the 1,800 nuevos soles (Peruvian currency) requested she will buy more clothing in the city of Lima, in order to be able to offer her customers a greater variety of products.
