A loan of $900 helped to buy cosmetics.

Luz's story

Luz is 55, single, and she lives in her parents’ home with her brothers and sister. Luz cuts and styles hair, and sells cosmetics in general. She goes to great pains with the haircuts to please her customers.
Her beauty salon is located in a small space in her house where she takes care of many of her customers. Other times she goes to their homes to give them special attention. She really enjoys her work and especially when she sells her beauty products, because of the relationships she has developed with her loyal customers. Although occasionally the work hurts her hands with the chemicals that they contain, nevertheless it’s worth the effort because she can increase her capital. In the future she plans on only selling cosmetics and doing hairstyling.
This is the twelfth loan with MFP, and she promises to make the payments on time and to work responsibly, because she is the group’s secretary. With the loan that she is requesting, she is planning on increasing her beauty supplies, since the bigger the variety, the more the profits.
