Vitalina's story

Vitalina is the unique name of this charismatic woman who, at the age of 48, feels younger than ever. She lives with her three children, Denisse, 26, Kelly, 21, and Giancarlo, 16. Through much effort and dedication she mananged to raise them well. She is a very dedicated woman in everything she does, including her business which is being a beauty consultant. Three year ago she began selling cosmetics from a well-known international brand. Not only does this produce profits from her sales but the company also offers her growth opportunities to become a big businesswoman letting her incorporate various beauty consultants who want to work for the company. They train her for this, depending on time at work, and she likes this because she knows that other companies do not offer these opportunities to their beauty consultants. She wants to grow economically as well as to grow personallly because she is a hard-working woman having learned this from a very early age and passing it on to her children as well. Vitalina has a second job: she is a pediatric nurse and works mornings at a children's shelter. This peaceful activity also generates good income for her. For the future, she would like to become a great businesswoman with this line of cosmetics because, as she herself states: "I want a career with this company that gives me the opportunity to do so despite my age."
This will be her fifth loan with MFP and she will be very responsible with her repayments, as usual. In addition, she is very happy with the work of her communal bank because it is made up of enterprising women like herself. With the funds she is requesting now she will stock up on a greater amount of cosmetics to have available for her customers.
