Luz's story

Luz is 45 years old. She lives in her own home with her parents and her three children: Vladimir (24), Jose (21) and Jair (19). Three years ago she started selling beauty products. She does this activity together with a friend. Since she has the power of persuasion, she is able to make good profits due to her high sales. Luz likes to recommend the makeup tones to her regular customers. In addition, it is a calm business. She offers the products through a catalog and later delivers the orders and collects the money. For this reason, she is planning to continue in this business, since she has had no major problems with it and it allows her to raise her children. Since she is a very hard working woman and wants to get ahead, she plans to have a store in her house in the future and offer her beauty products. This is the 8th loan that she has had with MFP and she promises to be very responsible with making her payments since she wants to do right by the other members of the group. Luz is planning on investing the money she is asking for in the purchase of new beauty products in order to have them in stock and offer them at a higher price.
