A loan of $300 helped to buy clothing.

Kelly's story

Kelly, 34, is married and has three children; everyone lives in her mother-in-law's house.

She sells clothes from place to place in a very busy market in her neighborhood. She has to fight for space inside the market so she gets there very early in the morning, at 5am, so that she can have a space assigned to her and not have any problems during her workday.

She returns home at midday to prepare lunch for her husband, who is a bricklayer.

She has been in this line of work for 5 years and she has managed to win over regular customers and improve her quality of life.

This is her second loan with MFP and she once again pledges to repay in a timely fashion. Besides, she is happy to have the support of her fellow group members because they are very unified.

She will use the requested funds to buy more items of clothing in order to offer her customers a greater variety of merchandise.
