Gredel's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase cosmetics and clothing.
Gredel, 41, is a good, friendly, and happy woman. She is married, and from this marriage she has two children, 20 and 21 years old. She lives in her own house where she spends her days at the side of her two children and her husband, with whom she worked hard in order to be able to provide the best to her children. Now she is providing them an education, and for that reason she and her husband work every day so they don't lack for anything. Gredel works selling various products; among the things she sells are beauty products, perfume, cosmetics, and more, as well as fashionable clothing that she brings from the city of Lima and sells on credit to her friends, neighbors, family members, and coworkers. In addition to this, she is also a teacher at an educational center in the city. She has been doing this work for 18 years, and it is going very well for her. She started with it when she needed to be able to cover the cost of her studies, since she was still a student then and needed to have some income. Little by little she made progress until she graduated and was able to also work in the area she had studied. Even so, she continued selling cosmetics, since they bring her a good income. She has many plans for the future. She hopes to be able to continue working and creating a good income for her household, but for the moment she will bring in more products and in this way begin to expand her business. This will be her first loan with MFP, so she hopes for your collaboration so that she can realize her plans. On the other hand, she promises to make her repayments on time, and she hopes to quickly develop a good relationship with her communal bank, of which she has heard very good things due to the comradeship and solidarity that exists among its members. With the amount requested of 1000 soles, she will buy beauty products, cosmetics, and perfume in order to sell them, as well as some clothing to offer to her customers.
