A loan of $700 helped repair of her photo printer.

Janet's story

Janet is 28 years old. She lives in her own home with her husband, Cesar (29), who is a photographer, and her daughter Yanley, who is 9.

For four years she has been offering an instant photo service in her locale located in a mall in her city. She likes the work because it is easy. It is made up of taking different sized pictures of her clients and developing them right away for whatever reason they need them. She also sells cell phones and cell phone accesories in the same locale. For this reason she is very satisfied, since she gets good profit from both businesses. Many clients, while they are waiting for their pictures, see the cellphones and the accesories and they decide to buy them.

For the future, she plans to grow her business, since she's already in need of space. She also wants to have an assistant, since she does the work with her husband, but the two of them can't keep up.

This is the third loan she has had with MFP and she is very grateful with all of those people who make it possible for her to access credit that will allow her to keep on working and progressing in life. Janet is planning on investing the money she is asking for in fixing her photo printer. She will also buy more chargers and cell phone accesories.
