Maria
María, 55 years of age, is an honest, happy and hard-working woman. She lives with her partner and son in her own house, which she bought with savings from her work. There, they share the desire to attain a life that is of a higher standard and full of satisfaction. María’s work consists of selling clothing of different brands, styles and sizes for all ages. She carries items for both men and women, and also offers to the general public the best quality bedding and towels in a variety of colors. She renews all her merchandise on a monthly basis, for which she travels to another city where she can find everything she needs at lower prices.

She has been working in this sector for 6 months, having previously alternated this work with selling food from her home. However, on doctor’s orders, she had to leave that function and now she dedicates herself solely to clothing sales. She assures us that it generates more profit. She has the support of her son and partner, who help her move the heavy merchandise. What she enjoys about her work is the ease with which she obtains new customers, and her charisma and cheerfulness have permitted her to attain high sales levels in a short period of time. As a result, she generates profits more quickly. The work allows her to organize her time and complete her household chores. Her partner encourages her to continue forward and now her primary goal is to outfit a section of her house as a small boutique so she can continue progressing.

This is her 20th loan with MFP and she thanks everyone who makes her access to credit possible so she can meet her objectives. On her part, she commits to paying her installments on time. She is very happy to belong to a cooperative bank given that all the members are very friendly and united.

With the 3,000 Peruvian soles requested, she will buy a greater quantity of merchandise comprised of clothing such as t-shirts, shorts, pants, blouses and bed sheets.
