A loan of $375 helped to purchase more lingerie and casual clothing to fill her customers' orders.

Maria's story

María, age 50, is a loving and hard-working mother. She lives in her own home with her husband and 4 children. For 30 years she has sold china and general clothing based on the season. She tries to increase and diversify her products. She is constantly working, buying and selling, in her informal sales stall which she is constantly moving, since she does not have a fixed location. Her oldest daughter helps her with this work. When they can't work, they go shopping. With the passing of time, she has become familiar with her sales points. She has very good prices, and so she has more customers. For Maria it is important to continue with her business and get a fixed sales location where she can do her work with more peace of mind. This is her seventh loan with MFP, and she promises again to be responsible with the payment of her quotas. She thinks this loan will be very useful in the progress of her business. With the requested loan, she will invest in the purchase of more lingerie and casual clothing for the weather of the new year.
