Dorcas
Dorcas, age 42, lives in her own house with her two children. She has been selling clothing for five years. She travels monthly to the city of Lima to stock her business with up-to-date and modern merchandise according to the season. She makes her sales in the same city. She takes part of her merchandise as a sample to ensure more rapid sales. This way of working allows her to arrange her schedule and not neglect her children.

The most difficult part of her work is waiting for her customers to pay her. That is why she tries, whenever possible, to be paid in cash for the item that is purchased. In the future she will continue working in order to have a clothing store in her house.

This is her 12th loan with MFP. She is very happy to know that she has financial backing. She has always demonstrated herself to be responsible in her payments. Also, it pleases her to be part of her communal bank because all of the members are responsible and very supportive people. She thanks those individuals who will approve her loan request; the funds will be very useful in advancing her business. She will use the requested loan to buy more merchandise.

Dorcas tiene 42 años, vive con sus 2 hijos y en su casa propia. Desde hace 5 años se dedica en la venta de prendas de vestir, por lo que viaja mensualmente a la ciudad de Lima para abastecerse de mercadería actual y moderna de acuerdo a la temporada en que se encuentra. Sus ventas lo realizan en su misma ciudad, llevando parte de su mercadería como muestra para asegurar más rápida la venta, de esa manera de trabajar le permite disponer de su horario y no descuidar de sus hijos. Lo más dificultoso de su trabajo es esperar a que le cancelen sus clientes, por esa razón trata en lo posible de que le paguen al contado el producto que compran. En adelante continuara trabajando con el fin de tener su tienda de ropa en su misma casa. Es su doceavo crédito con MFP, esta muy contenta de saber que tiene un apoyo financiero ya que siempre ha demostrado ser responsable en sus pagos, además le agrada ser parte de su grupo comunal porque todos sus integrantes son personas responsables y muy solidarias, agradece aquellas personas que serán gestoras del préstamo que solicita ya que le será muy útil en el progreso de su negocio. Con el crédito que solicita, invertirá en la compra de más mercadería.
