A loan of $225 helped buying more clothing.

Marlita's story

42-year-old Marlita lives in her own home and supports her 23-year-old son. From a young age, Marlita has been selling clothes. She has gained a lot of experienece and plenty of good customers along the way. He business works something like this: she buys clothing from one of the busiest markets in her city and delivers it to her customers, door-to-door, on foot. Overall, Marlita is happy with what she does, because it's useful work. It can be quite tiring, however, which is why she wants to improve her business. She wants to make her business more stable and avoid walking quite so much, which will give her more time to spend with her son. This is Marlita's third loan with MFP, and she has pledged to repay it promptly. With this loan, she plans to buy more clothing because she has many orders to fill.
