Roxana's story

Roxana is 43 years old and an enterprising mother. She lives in her own home with her two children. For more than 20 years, Roxana has been providing haircuts, coloring, highlights, perms, and general makeovers. She started working from a vending space at the market, which is four blocks from her house. After a lot of hard work and sacrifice over a period of time, she was able to build a house. Roxana wants to remodel one of the rooms to install a sauna (steam bath) so that she can launch a new business. She is very pleased with what she has achieved. Now she has a spa where she provides her customers great care and attention. In the future she plans to expand her services by providing massage therapy at the request of her customers.


This is her eighth loan with MFP. She promises to complete her payments in the same manner that she does today because the money will be very useful. Roxana plans to invest this loan in the purchase of fluids, tints, and lotions used in administering skin care treatments so that she can continue providing good service.
