A loan of $900 helped to stock up on beauty supplies.


Antonieta's story

Antonieta, 51, lives in her own house, located in the north of the city, with her husband, Jorge, 70, and their two adult children. She has enjoyed working from a very young age; she has been involved in commerce her entire life. For the last 6 years she has sold beauty products of a world renowned brand. She says the business is quite tranquil because she offers the goods via catalogue to her acquaintances and friends and then brings them their fulfilled orders which she offers on credit. She is very satisfied because she can work from home; she earns steady income without neglecting her household chores. She states that she doesn’t particularly like to sell to people who are unknown to her because she fears they may not pay on time. Because she’s a very enterprising woman later on she’d like to expand her beauty products sales business and buy a display case to stock it with the best products and accessories to offer her customers. This is the first loan she’s had with MFP and she promises to repay on time because she doesn’t want to disappoint all the people who made the financing that will allow her to continue to work possible. Antonieta plans to use the money to buy a larger amount of beauty products because she wants to improve her stock thus improving her profits.
