Alejandrina's story

Alejandrina, 59, lives alone in her own house because her children are grown and have their own families. They live away from their mother.

She has been a street vendor for over 13 years. She sells clothes in the most popular market close to her area. During these years she devoted herself to this activity to give her family a good quality of life. Now, she has perfected her business, and she knows all of the tricks to buy wholesale. Because she is a very meticulous person, she chooses the best quality products. This gives her a great advantage in her sales. She was able to increase the number of customers that she has. That is why she is so sought after, and she enjoys a good reputation for the products she sells.

Alejandrina hopes to have her own sales place, which would give her greater stability in the business. This is her 18th loan with MFP. She has always demonstrated great punctuality in her payments. She will use the loan she is asking for to buy a greater quantity of merchandise. She expects to get more sales during the end of the year holidays.
