A loan of $725 helped to buy more merchandise.

Carmen's story

Carmen is 40 years old. She lives with her 47 year old husband Santos and their two children. They all live together in their own home.

She sells jewellry such as earrings and necklaces in a variety of colours and designs, which appeal to most of the customers.

All her life, Carmen has worked at a variety of jobs and finds this one the most convenient because it lets her focus on her home. Her great power of persuasion is one of the tools she uses to sell her merchandise.

In the future, she'd like to have a much larger store where she could offer her jewellery more quietly.

This is her first loan with MFP and she has committed to be very punctual with all of her payments. With the loan she is requesting, she will buy a greater quantity and diversity of jewellery to be able to make better profits.
