Rosa's story

Rosa is 52 years old and lives alone in her own house since her children are now independent. For more than three years, she has engaged in selling religious articles such as music CDs, Bibles, prints, and posters. Rosa comes from a very religious family. Her sales are made by taking orders. Since there is not a place in her area that offers this type of merchandise, Rosa must travel nearly two hours to the central part of the city where she can acquire all the items that she can sell to members of her congregation. Rosa is pleased with her work and enjoys keeping busy, as well as sharing her faith. In the meantime, she wants to buy more merchandise so that she can increase her sales.

This is her second loan with MFP. Rosa believes that working with her group has been very good for her and renews her commitment to complete her payments. With the loan she requested, Rosa will buy more music CDs, but this time she will purchase them from another distributor who offers lower prices and better quality.
