Rosa's story

Rosa, 39, lives with her husband, who is a public transport driver, and their two children, who are students. For the past year she has sold clothing and beauty products which she takes to her customers in her husband's motor vehicle. Also, for the past 4 years, Rosa has had a small grocery store in her home where she sells food items and beverages; her children help her tend to the customers at the store while she is out delivering her beauty products. What she most likes about her job is the contact she has with people with whom she has pleasant conversations and makes many friendships. Besides, it is profitable because she works for a very well-known cosmetics brand and her customers always require these products. Her wish for the future is to convert her small store into a minimart. This is her 8th loan with MFP. She is a member of a communal bank and very accustomed to her fellow members, who she likes very much because they work well together and are very well organized. With the financing requested now she will buy more beauty products and will increase her supply of items sold in her store.
