A loan of $375 helped supplies.

Ana's story

Ana is 43 years old and lives in a home of her own, alongside her husband, 44 year old Jose, who works as an electrician, and her two young children who attend school. They work each day to get ahead. Each day, this entrepreneurial woman uses her ingenuity to help her husband out with the constant household expenses. For this reason she runs several businesses, such as: beauty product sales via catalog to current customers. She also has a cosmetology business, where her customers request her service because of her ability to cut and style hair. She began studying cosmetology a few years ago, but she did not complete the course because her children were very young. Now she would like to work in this trade.

She enjoys working as a hair stylist because she understands this business and it brings her a good income. She also provides in home service, which sets her apart. She doesn’t have her own salon, but plans to set one up in partnership with a friend.

This will be her first loan through MFP and she promises to make all of her payment on time because she doesn’t want to be in bad standing with those who have made this support possible so that she can continue to work and move ahead.

Ana plans to invest the money from this loan in some supplies that she needs, such as hair coloring and other liquids that she needs for her business.
