Giovana
Giovana, 39, is a very happy, enthusiastic, and hardworking woman. She has lived with Felipe for many years and has three children, ages 24, 18, and 15. They live together in their own house, which she and her partner built thanks to the effort they both put into their jobs.

Giovana starts working very early, leaving for the shop she rents near downtown. She's a member of a business in which they make and mend a variety of garments for women, men, and children. In each one of the garments, she captures the best of her creativity, making an effort in the details. All this perfectionism is reflected in her customers' satisfaction when they get a quality garment.

She has been in this business for more than four years. Sometimes she works at home, where she also has a modest sewing machine and all the materials she needs to do her work.

What she likes about this job is that she works alongside experienced people who help her be better every day, both at work and emotionally. Also, she's certain that her customers are exclusive, and this allows her to receive good pay for each garment she makes. She hopes to continue making progress in this work because she has many expectations for the future.

This is her third loan with MFP. She's grateful to those people who gave her the loan she needs to increase her working capital. She pledges to make her payments punctually. She's happy to belong to her communal bank because they're very supportive and responsible.

With the requested amount of 1500 soles [PEN] she'll buy clothes hangers, colored thread, needles, and some special fabrics to make dresses and blouses.
