A loan of $1,025 helped increase merchandise.


Liz's story

Liz is 29. She lives with her husband and their five year old daughter who is just beginning her education.

For two years Liz has been selling beauty products. She has a small display case in her house where she keeps and displays her cosmetics. She also sells purses, shoes, and jewelry. Liz likes to learn different sales techniques in order to convince her customers to buy her products. Therefore, her business is profitable.

Also, her husband runs a river tour agency from their house. Liz takes advantage of the opportunity to sell her cosmetics to the people who come to her husband’s business. They are generally wood merchants. Many times they immediately buy the products she has in stock.

This is her fourth loan with MFP. What she likes about working with her communal bank is that all of the members are responsible with their payments, and they are friends with each other. She will use the money she is asking for to buy more beauty products, shoes, purses, and materials to make jewelry.
