A loan of $350 helped purchase material for making dresses.

Veronika's story

Verónika is 20 years old. She is a hardworking and cheerful young woman who lives at the home of her parents, Dionicio (age 60) and Paulina (age 50). Verónika desires to help them with the family expenses.

She operates a clothing stand in central Juliaca. Verónika offers her customers the latest and most stylish clothing, which are mainly requested by teenage girls especially when they attend their prom. Her clothing is acquired from the city of Tacna (in the southern part of the country), which explains why her clothing is trendy and in fashion. In addition, Verónika manufactures some of the outfits that she sells from her stand. What she enjoys most about her job is giving advice to the young girls who buy from her. She has been in this business for three years and says the hardest part is transporting her inventory because the trip is long and tiring. In the future, she hopes to have a larger shop where she can provide better service to her customers.

This is Verónika’s first loan with MFP. At such a young age, she is very responsible at her job. She knows she has to make her payments on time. Verónika is well-liked by the other members of her Communal Bank for her cheerful disposition and because she is the youngest member of the group. With her loan of 1000 soles, she plans to buy material for producing more dresses to sell so that she can offer her customers a wider variety.
