Rosa's story

For Rosa, the well-being of her loved ones is the most important thing, and so in her home they try to always remain supportive of one another. This is an example she wants to leave her children for when they form their own homes. Ever since she was a young girl, she has liked to care for her appearance and use makeup, and due to the high cost of buying cosmetics, she decided to become a cosmetics salesperson in her area. For the past 7 years she has gained experience in this activity. Rosa's secret is to visit many people and go out every day to offer them the newest products by means of catalogs, and then deliver the products by the deadline in order to keep her clients happy. Now she has the ambition to be a business woman, since the beauty products business encourages the women to not only be product promoters, but to look for a team they can lead and equip in sales, but without neglecting their own customers' orders. For this reason she would like to have a store to sell these products. Rosa has been working with MFP for 6 years, this is her fourteenth loan, and during this period she has seen her group progress, since they try to organize themselves in order to avoid difficult circumstances. She will use the 1,500 soles she is requesting to buy products for the approaching holidays, like Mothers' Day.
