Ysabel's story

Ysabel is 44 years old, is easygoing, and is a loving mother. She is married to the father of her two children and they live in a house they own in a crowded neighborhood located south of Lima. She has been selling cosmetics from different beauty lines for years. When she started her business she suffered since she didn't have customers so her husband, a driver, supported her with money to pay for her first orders. Little by little, she began getting more and more customers, rising through the ranks of the beauty company and becoming a sales executive. Now she manages two young ladies who work for her. Ysabel is happy with her work since she enjoys talking to people, helping her sell products easily and get more customers with her persuasiveness. In the future she plans to purchase display cabinets to showcase her products at home. This is her 16th loan with MFP to whom she's made the commitment to keep being responsible with her payments, as she has been so far. Furthermore, she mentions that she is happy with her credit peers since they all know each other and are responsible. She plans to use the loan she is asking for to increase her stock of beauty products.
