Angelica
Angélica, age 43, lives in her own home with her three children. She takes care of the youngest child since the two older children are working.


Each day this hardworking woman operates a sewing workshop located at her mother’s house. For the past fourteen years, she has managed this business in which she manufactures hair accessories and headbands. Angélica is extremely satisfied with her work because she is able to generate steady income from the production of these women’s accessories. She works from 8am to 10pm. Her mother is also a successful wholesaler of these products. What she dislikes most is spending so much time away from her youngest daughter, but Angélica knows that she must work in order to continue with her profession. Being an enterprising woman, Angélica has future plans to buy a sewing machine so that she can start her own workshop at home, thereby giving her the ability to look after her family while she is working. She plans to invest the money she requested in the purchase of materials (fabrics, elastics, and thread) necessary to complete an outstanding order. This will enable her to continue moving forward.


This is her first loan with MFP. Angélica promises to complete her payments on time because she does not want to look bad in the eyes of those responsible for making this loan possible so that she could continue working and making progress.

Angélica, de 43 años, vive en su casa propia al lado de sus tres hijos, de los cuales solo se hace cargo de la menor, pues los dos mayores trabajan.

Cada día esta empeñosa mujer se dirige al taller de costura que tiene su madre en su casa, y desde hace 14 años se desempeña en este lugar con la costura de collects (para el cabello) y binchas. Esta muy satisfecha de su labor, pues aunque la realiza durante todo el día, desde las 8 de la mañana hasta las 10 de la noche, obtiene regulares ganancias por la producción de estos accesorios femeninos, pues su madre es una gran mayorista de estos productos. Lo que no le gusta es que debe dejar mucho tiempo sola a su hija menor, pero sabe que tiene que trabajar para que ella pueda seguir una profesión. Como es una mujer emprendedora para el futuro tiene planeado comprar una máquina de coser para empezar su propio taller de costura en su vivienda para que así pueda estar pendiente de su hogar.

Angélica tiene planeado invertir el dinero solicitado en la compra de materiales que necesita (telas, elásticos e hilos) que necesita pues quiere concretar un pedido que tiene pendiente, de esta manera espera continuar adelante.

Es el primer crédito que tiene con MFP y promete pagar sus cuotas puntualmente, pues no quiere quedar mal con las personas que hicieron posible el dinero que le permitirá continuar trabajando en busca del progreso.
