A loan of $725 helped to stock up with beauty products.

Clarisa's story

Clarisa is 62 years old and lives in a house that she owns with her husband and two older children. For the past three years, Clarisa has worked selling beauty products and also has a juice bar located in the front part of her house. During the mornings, she not only sells her beauty products, but she is also the executive and area leader and is responsible for distributing the products to each of the sellers. Starting at 6pm, she happily tends to her business, making juices, chicken and meat sandwiches, and cakes. This hardworking woman splits her time to complete the two jobs that she is so passionate about, and that are going well for her. This motivates her to continue working with a lot of energy. For the future, Clarisa plans to expand her business and as a result, her concern is purchasing display cases to show her products or cakes. This is her 11th loan with MFP and she promises to make all of her loan payments in the established time frame. Within her communal bank, she is one of the most cheerful members, which is why everyone values her. In obtaining the loan requested, Clarisa will fill more orders for the approaching Valentine’s Day season.
