Rosa's story

Rosa is a 46 year old enterprising woman, she lives with her partner Guillermo who is 50 years old, and they have 2 children: Guillermo is 19, and Milagros is 13 years old. They live in their own house. For the past 15 years she has dedicated herself to the sale of beauty products, a business that she began because she needed to work, to feel independent, and to help her family financially. Rosa sells from home and she receives orders from friends, family members, neighbors, etc. Once the products are ordered it takes approximately 3 weeks for them to arrive, however Rosa, with much astuteness, purchases the products when they are on sale and at a better price, and then offers these products to her clients at the real prices that are shown in the catalog; this way she makes better profits. In the future, she hopes to have a shop in her home where she can offer, more comfortably, her merchandise.

This is Rosa’s second loan with MFP; she has always been punctual in all her payments, as she commits to be at present. With the money that she has requested she will purchase more beauty products to have in her stock that she can sell immediately, without the need to wait for orders to arrive.
