Dina's story

Dina is a selfless mother who is 36 years old. She lives with her partner Manuel, who is 35, and her two daughters: Adriana, 5 and Araiza, only 3 months.

She is very happy because despite having had her baby very recently she can dedicate time to her work. She has been selling beauty products for 9 years and this has allowed her to set her own schedule.

Sometimes, she takes her little one and she feels very happy to be with her and at the same time make money for her household. For the future, Dina wants to set up a store. This will be more profitable. She likes helping in the family finances and supporting her husband with the household expenses.

This is the fifth loan with MFP and she has always shown a lot of responsibility with all of her payments, the same as the other members of the group. With the money she is asking for now, she will buy more cosmetics to sell this summer, since perfumes, deodarants and skincare creams are in high demand.
