A loan of $1,100 helped to buy uniforms.

Rosa Syoner's story

Rosa is 33 years old and lives in her own home with her husband, Jhon (34), who is a driver, and their three small children. She is also expecting another child and together they all want to get ahead day-by-day.

For four years now she has been selling clothing to merchants who submit their orders depending on the season. Now she is offering school uniforms and also selling fashion clothing. The advantage she has in her business is that she can sell clothing through concession, meaning that her customers can pay on a credit basis.

She enjoys her work and obtains considerable earnings that enable her to help out with household expenses and buy whatever she needs. She does not like it when customers are delinquent in their payments which delays her purchases of new merchandise. Since she is very enterprising her future plans include having her own clothing shop somewhere.

Rosa plans to use the loan to buy more uniforms because the school year is about to begin giving her more income.

This is her seventh loan through MFP and she is committed to paying it back on time. She would not want to disappoint the people who have helped her continue working in order to get ahead.
