Marlita's story

Marlita lives in her own home and at 42 years old, she is a very hardworking woman and has been able to help her 23 year old son advance. She has sold clothing since she was very young, an activity in which she has gained much experience and many good clients. Her work consists of buying wholesale clothing in one of the most bustling markets in the city, and then filling her clients orders from home to home.

Marlita is pleased with what she does, because it is very useful, although sometimes it is very tiring. Still, she would like to improve her business. In the future, she wants to set up a more stable business and therefore avoid having to walk as much. This will help her son advance.

This is her third loan with MFP, which she promises to repay punctually. With this loan, she will purchase more clothing, as she has many orders to fill.
