Isabel's story

Isabel is 50 years old, and she lives with her daughter in a house that she owns. More than 4 years ago she was selling beer, but she was not satisfied with this activity and so after two more years she started selling haberdashery and personal beauty products. Her daughter, her first assistant, always accompanies her when she travels to different parts of the city and to commercial fairs to sell her products. This is how she succeeds in earning the money she needs to face her expenses. She says that she likes working independently, and that the years of experience she has gained have taught her how to administer her capital. In the future she hopes she will have a fixed stall in order to work with no worries. This is her fourth loan with MFP: she is very happy to know she can count on economic support as she has always shown responsibility with her repayments; she also likes being a member of her communal bank because all the members are responsible and very caring people. She is thankful to the people who will manage the loan she is requesting, which will be very useful to make her activity grow. The loan she is requesting will be used to increase her working capital, as she will refurnish her stock by buy large quantities of products.
