Victoria
Victoria is 43 years old and a hardworking woman. She lives with her husband Edgar. They have five children who they care for in the house that she inherited from her mother five years ago. Victoria is an industrious woman who works with her husband to care for their livestock. They own several bulls, cows, and sheep. However, her main source of income is producing traditional embroidered skirts of different colors and textures. She sells her products to different merchants who come to her house to buy them. Victoria says that she sells more skirts and receives more orders during the festival seasons, such as the upcoming “El Santiago”, which is a festival that is held in honor of the animals. She is now working very hard this season in order to generate more income. “I hope to take full advantage of this time so that I can earn the most income,” Victoria says happily.


This is the second loan she has received from MFP. Victoria is grateful for the support that has been provided because she can continue investing toward the progress of her business. In addition, she promises to be punctual with her loan payments. She will invest the money she requested in the purchase of fabrics for her embroideries. If there is money left over, she will also buy livestock.
