Gladys's story

Gladys is a kind and hardworking mother. She lives in her own home with her husband and her three children for whom she wants to provide the best education. Gladys has her own beauty salon where she provides makeup and styling services. There she works every day providing haircuts, coloring, perms, and hair conditioning to her customers. Her establishment is busiest in the afternoons, especially during the holiday festivities and celebrations. She provides her services to her customers until the late hours of the evening since it gives her great satisfaction. Gladys enjoys her work because it is both profitable and peaceful. In addition, it helps pay the rent for her salon. Gladys has been working for 20 years, and during this time, she has become well-known among her customers. In the future, she plans to expand her business by adding more space in order to open a bazaar where she can sell beauty products and trinkets.

This is her twelfth loan with MFP and she promises to complete her payments on time like she always has. Gladys is pleased to be part of her Communal Bank because everyone is responsible. The loan she is requesting will be used to replace of the accessories in her salon and to purchase a computer for her daughter who is studying at the university.
