A loan of $350 helped increase merchandise.


Victoria's story

Victoria is an enterprising and hard-working 60 year old woman. She is a widow, and she lives in her own house with her children and their families. For three years she has been selling clothes with one of her daughters. They both mutually help each other as they go to buy the merchandise together. On the week ends they go to the most popular markets in their district to sell their clothes and get better earnings. Victoria is very happy with her work. It allows her to leave behind her worries and to feel useful to her family, helping them with the household expenses. This is her first loan with MFP. She promises to be very responsible, and she will not have problems with her payments. She will use the money she is asking for to buy a greater quantity of clothing in order to get greater earnings.
