A loan helped buy materials to make frames.


Victoria's story

Victoria is 44, lives in a house she owns with her husband Hugo who is a 42 year old driver and her four children that study and work; together they make efforts each day to get ahead. Four years ago, this persevering woman started selling materials needed to make frames. She wakes up early to start working at her home-based business, in partnership with her brother, she is content because the income is steady. She says that her family used to make frames, then when she had children she saw a good opportunity to continue with the business that with so many efforts her family had passed on to her. Currently she is doing well because she is also receiving rental income from a motorized-cart that she owns. She has many plans for the future such as expand the business and open a new one in the city, because she knows that making frames is a very profitable business. This is the first loan she gets with MFP and she promises to make her payments punctually, because she doesn't want to disappoint the people that made this possible for her to continue working in search of progress. Victoria has plans to invest the loan in the purchase of a large amount of materials in a wholesale approach because she can't fulfill the needs of her clients who request more variety.
