Noemi's story

Noemi is a 57 year-old widow who lives with her children in her house and she spends precious moments as her grandchildren represent her greatest treasure. When her partner died she tried to invest her time in many tasks and thanks to the support of a friend she started selling consmetics by catalog from a line of beauty products. This is easy for her as she just have to visit her friends, relatives, and neighbors to offer the different products every month. She enjoys doing this as she is not alone but with many friends, the difficult part, though, is to collect as people get behind with the payments and damage her income and punctuality rewards, and therefore she tries to avoid getting behind in collecting. With this business, Noemi found a way to get ahead in spite of the circumstances. This is her fourteenth loan and during her time with MFP she has enjoyed working with a harmonious team, and she has many friends. The 1500 soles requested will be invested in buying the most popular products.
