Lorreine
Lorreine, 49, is a hardworking and responsible woman. She is married to Estanis, 62, and together they have 4 children that they raised and educated and are now independent. Lorreine now lives with her husband in her own home, where they share their days with a desire to work hard in order to have a better quality of life.

Lorreine has a business making and repairing garments. She works in her house, where she awaits the arrival of her friends, neighbors and personal acquaintances who need to buy an exclusive garment, or who simply need some small mending work done such as mending a split seam, putting a button on a shirt or pair of pants, or putting in a zipper. She has been doing this work for 10 years, and she does it with an old sewing machine that she keeps that she is very fond of, as she considers it to be her loyal work companion. She always provides friendly service, and she is very thorough and observant, qualities that have enabled her to complete her work with excellent quality finishes. Alongside this activity, she sometimes also sells used clothing at that bank of the river. She has been doing this for 2 years, and this business has also done very well. And if that weren't enough, she also works in the mornings in a sawmill in the city, which increases her income. Now she is hoping to establish a dressmaking business that is much more complete, and to do this she needs to buy a new sewing machine.

This is Lorreine's third loan with MFP, and she is very content to know that she has financial support, guaranteeing her the ability to continue working with a lot of tranquility. On her part, she promises to continue being punctual with her loan payments, as she was with the previous loans that she took. With the sum of 800 Peruvian soles that she requests, she will buy a new sewing machine with a serger that costs about 700 soles. With the rest of the money, she will buy some dressmaking supplies such as fabric, thread, buttons and needles.

Lorreine tiene 49 años, es una mujer trabajadora y muy responsable. Está casada con Estanis, de 62 años, con quien tiene cuatro hijos a quienes crió y educó hasta que se hicieron independientes. Ahora ella vive al lado de su esposo, en su casa propia, donde comparten sus días con las ganas de trabajar mucho para tener una mejor calidad de vida.

Ella se dedica a la confección y arreglo de prendas de vestir. Trabaja en su casa, donde espera la llegada de sus vecinos, amigos o personas conocidas que tengan la necesidad de obtener alguna prenda exclusiva o que sencillamente requieran de alguna labor pequeña como enmendar alguna prenda descosida, colocar un botón en alguna camisa o pantalón, o colocar un cierre. Lleva en este trabajo más de 10 años y lo hace con una máquina de coser antigua y vieja a la cual guarda mucho cariño por considerarla su fiel compañera de trabajo. Brinda siempre una agradable atención y es muy detallista y observadora, cualidad que le ha servido para culminar su trabajo con una excelente calidad en los acabados. Paralelo a esta actividad, de manera ocasional, vende ropa de segundo uso por la ribera de los ríos desde hace 2 años y también le va muy bien. Por si fuera poco, también trabaja por las mañanas en un aserradero de la ciudad, lo cual incrementa sus ingresos. Ahora espera establecer un negocio de costura mucho más completo y para iniciar este sueño necesita comprar una máquina de coser nueva.

Este es su tercer crédito con MFP y está muy contenta al saber que tiene un apoyo financiero que le brinde la garantía para continuar trabajando con mucha tranquilidad. Por su parte se compromete a seguir siendo una socia puntual en el pago de sus cuotas, así como lo hizo en anteriores créditos que tuvo.

Con el monto solicitado, 800 soles, comprará una máquina de coser nueva con remalladora, cuesta aproximadamente 700 soles. Con el monto restante comprará algunos materiales de costura como telas, hilos, botones y agujas.
