A loan of $525 helped purchase more beauty products and a display cabinet.

Maria's story

María is 62 years old and she’s a single mom. She lives with her daughter, who has a beautiful little girl and she’s also supporting her mother.
She began selling beauty products ten years ago. She only sells them through catalog upon request, in cash or credit.
She also owns a motorcar, for which she hired a person who works as a public transport driver and gives her all the daily earnings.
María enjoys her work very much because she can meet a lot of people and maintain a good relationship with them and because it makes her feel active.
In the future, she would like to open a shoes and clothes store.

This is her second loan with MFP and what she likes the most about her community bank is that his partners are very responsible and, especially, very open. With the money she’s requesting, she will purchase more beauty products and a display cabinet to show them and keep them better protected.
