Rosa's story

Rosa, 41 years old, is an ambitious woman who wants to excel. She is married in lives in her own home with her three children and her husband, who shares in feeding and educating their children. Rosa's work consists of going to her friends' houses to get orders for items from catalogs that carry perfume, clothing, jewelry, etc. She also does this at home, where she put together a small stand that holds all of the products she has. She has the help of her daughter, who sells some of her products to her friends as well. She has been working at this for three years, and it is going very well. What she likes about her work is that it contributes to the household income. She hopes to eventually have a small but very well-stocked boutique in her house where she can display all of the products she sells. This is Rosa's third loan from MFP. She is very thankful for the group she is part of, and she also hopes to be able to repay her loan as she has up to now. She has many expectations for the future and hopes to maintain her impeccable credit history with the institution so she can continue working as she has done up to now. With the requested loan of 1,800 soles, she will buy catalog products that are on sale, to have them in stock and thus be able to maximize her profits.
