A loan of $125 helped purchase beauty products & perfumes to fulfill her orders.

Julia's story

Julia is 40 years old and lives in her own home with her two children and her mother-in-law. They all reside in a populous neighborhood located north of the city. For more than two years, Julia has been selling beauty products of a known brand. She remembers starting her business based on a recommendation of a friend. When she first started building up her inventory of products, everything was very difficult, but in time she eventually acquired good customers who now buy on a frequent basis and pay on time. Julia enjoys her work because it allows her to earn a good income without neglecting her household. In addition, her children have been able to get ahead because of her effort and dedication. The part she dislikes is walking great distances in order to attract new customers, but she is willing to do it so that she can keep growing. This hardworking woman has plans to get further ahead by opening a small bazaar in her home so that she can continue forward.

This is her third loan with MFP. Julia promises to complete her payments on time so that she can continue progressing. In addition, she does not want to disappoint everyone who made this loan possible so that she could continue working. Julia plans to invest the loan she requested in the purchase of more beauty products and perfumes since she has several orders to fulfill. She hopes to have a better income.
