Fausta's story

Fausta, 47, lives with her two children in her own house. For the last three years she has sold cosmetics of well known brands in the market. She wanders the main streets of the city seeking new customers so that her products will sell better and she will earn better profits. Today she sees the results of her efforts and thanks to her dedication she has surpassed her own sales record.

Her sales methodology is leaving items on credit but always making sure that the customers are reliable with respect to repayments. With the strict control she has on collecting she can clearly see that profits are satisfactory so she wants to continue to increase the merchandise in order to have variety to offer her customers.

This is her 5th loan with MFP and she is happy to know that she can count on financial support. Besides, she enjoys being part of a communal bank because all the members are very mutually supportive. On the other hand, she thanks all the people who will fund the loan she is requesting that will be very useful for her business’ success.

She will use the requested funds o buy more cosmetics and clothes.
