A loan of $725 helped buying more merchandise.

Rosa's story

Rosa is 43 years old. She lives in her own house with her husband Sosimo, age 51, and their 2 sons, whom they would like to see in professional careers.

For the past two years, Rosa has sold beauty products, clothing and casual shoes. What she likes best is the fact that this work allows her to dedicate time to her family. Her husband has spent 20 years growing coffee, since this is a very profitable product. Accordingly, Rosa helps with the field work during the harvest season. The couple is teaching their sons values and hope that they will grow up to be good men.

For the future, they plan to plant more varieties of coffee and also open a clothing store, taking advantage of the fact that Rosa knows people who regularly place special orders for clothing.

This is Rosa's second loan with MFP, and she always keeps up with the agreements reached within her communal bank aimed at mutual development, since the members of this group practice responsibility, solidarity and mutual support. With the funds she is requesting, she will buy cosmetics and a great variety of clothing and shoes of various sizes; with the rest, she will invest in buying sacks of fertilizer and bottles of insecticide for her husband's coffee plantations.
