Rosa's story

Rosa is 37 years old, the mother of 4 children, and lives together with her husband, who is a motor mechanic and also sells wood. For the last 5 years Rosa has made a living by selling beauty products and clothing, which she takes from house to house in various places in her town, accepting credit or cash as payment. The thing she likes about her job is being in contact with people, with whom she shares very enjoyable moments. Furthermore, it is profitable for her, because she works for a very well-known brand of cosmetics. For this reason, her clients don't hesitate to buy her products. Even though this job is very tiring, since she has to walk constantly, Rosa puts forth a lot of effort because she wants to improve the financial situation in her home.

This is her second loan with MFP. She is part of a communal bank called "Futuro mejor", and she likes it a lot, because all of the members know each other and are responsible with their jobs and payments. With the money that she is now requesting, she will purchase more beauty products and clothing to increase her sales.
