Karla is 41 years old and a very simple and hard-working woman with much decisiveness and a desire to progress. She has a daughter, Karla, who's 6 years old whom she raises with great care. Currently she lives in the shop rented for her business and what she desires most is to work very hard in order to give her daughter a better quality of living.

She makes a living selling a variety of shoes. She buys all her merchandise in the capital city where she obtains it at a lower price with different style selections. She began this job more than three years ago and considers it profitable due to the demand that she has and the good earnings it leaves her with. She likes her job a lot and is very happy when she sells all her merchandise. It's because of this that she hopes to manage to have a bigger store where she can make sales in greater comfort.

This is her sixth loan with MFP and she is very happy because she has a financial backing with which to increase her work capital. Due to this she knows that she has to be very responsible and above all, punctual, with her payments. She is also happy to belong to her communal bank as she considers everyone to be very supportive.

With the requested total of 1000 nuevos soles she will buy more merchandise consisting of shoes and sneakers of various brands, in styles for women, men, and children. She will look for low prices because she's buying in bulk as she would like to supply her National Holidays campaign.
