Cristina's story

Cristina is a woman who radiates a lot of happiness. Age 40, she is very dedicated to the care of her husband and her children, age 20 and 10 years, with whom she lives in their own house. ,

Her good character wins her many friends which she decided to build upon, starting a clothes sale business, which has gone very well. She has operated this business for 8 years. She is always seen with her full bag of clothes and therefore she always finds a moment to offer her garments. Generally she sells on credit. She prefers to work in this manner because she earns a lot more, although initially she lost part of her capital from lack of payment. But, thanks to the support of her husband and from experience, she learned to select her clients and make her business profitable. Cristina is very pleased with what she does, because she now has very responsible and regular clients. Because of this, she would like to setup a clothing store in her home in the future, but without abandoning her current way of working.

This is her fifteenth loan with MFP and she promises, once more, to be punctual in her payments. Likewise, she plans to work in full harmony with her group, since the members are responsible and very hard-working people. With the money that she requests this time, she will increase her working capital to buy summer garments.
