A loan of $725 helped to buy beauty products, repair her car, and buy new tires.

Rosa's story

Rosa is 65 years old, lives in her home with her husband José who is 68, their two daughters, and their three grandchildren who she takes care of most of the day. Everyday this hardworking woman wakes up very early to take care of her granddaughters since her daughter heads out to the city to work as a shoe seller. During her free time she sells well-known beauty products. She offers her friends and acquaintances products through catalogs and in spite of her earnings being ordinary they are sufficient enough to help her husband with household expenditures. Along with this job she also rents a car to a taxi driver. The daily rent she receives allows her to save up money and live comfortably. Since she is a diligent woman she plans to buy another vehicle in the future to continue renting and receiving regular payments. This is the second loan she has with MFP and promises to repay her monthly payments as punctual as always since she does not want to disappoint the people who helped pave the way to improve her life. Rosa plans to use the loan to buy more beauty products that are in stock as well as to repair her car and buy new tires.
