Lina's story

Lina is 50 years old, she lives with her husband who transports cargo and her daughter who is of legal age and works.

For 10 years she has been a dressmaker, she is very good making garments for ladies, children and lingerie at her workshop which is installed in her own house. She sells from door to door. On the other hand, Lina also makes earrings, necklaces, shoes, and wallets which she decorates with beeds and colored stones. And if this was not enough, she also sells wood (planks, strips, and cants). She likes to keep busy especially when she sees daily economical growth as she gets good earnings from all her activities. For the future she would like to build adequate premises with a section for each of her businesses.

This is her 3rd loan with MFP and what she likes about her community bank is that her partners are enthusiastic, communicative, and friendly individuals, and above all, they support each other. With the money requested she will buy cloth, yarn and other textile materials to keep active with the dressmaking. She will also invest in her business selling wood and imitation jewelry.
