Candy
Candy, age 27, is a hardworking and earnest woman who exhibits cheerfulness through her extroverted personality. She is in a common-law relationship and lives with her partner Guillermo and her 14-year-old sister, who she is supporting by providing for her education. Candy lives in her own home and she has no children. She produces clothing for women, men, and children and then sells these items to relatives, friends, and acquaintances. Her designs have received good reception because they have fine finishes. Candy says that she learned this trade by studying at a vocational center and then became independent six years ago when she purchased a sewing machine with her own capital. Her business has grown since that time. Now she works with an assistant who she pays for each garment she produces. Candy enjoys her business because she has the ability to produce new designs. However, she occasionally suffers from physical exertion as a result of cutting and sewing for several hours in the same position. Despite the pain, she has plans to expand and grow her business. Candy wants to open a workshop in her house by purchasing more sewing machines.


This will be her sixth loan with the MFP organization. She is grateful for the opportunity to have a line of credit to help advance her business. For this reason, Candy promises to complete her payments just as she did with her previous loans. In addition, she feels comfortable with her Communal Bank group because she considers the members to be good people. The amount of 3000 PEN that she requested will be used to buy a new sewing machine valued at 600 PEN, as well as sewing materials for making clothes, such as fabrics and thread.
