Katya is 22 years old, unmarried, and lives with her mother. Ever since she was young she helped her cousin sell toys at the city markets. When her cousin went to the capital, Katya decided to work independently. It has been 3 years since she started her business and it has been going very well, especially during holidays such as Christmas and New Years when she sells a large amount of toys. Although this increase in business is welcome, she must be very cautious of the increased traffic, since she could easily be robbed. Katya is requesting her first loan with MFP and is committed to making her payments on time. She is very happy to be part of such a great program. The money from the loan will be used to purchase a large quantity of toys to take advantage of the holiday season.
