Rosa's story

Rosa is 64 years old. She lives in her own home along with her husband Victor, who is 60 years old, her eldest daughter, her son-in-law and her grandson. They work together to get ahead each day. 10 years ago, this enterprising woman began selling costume jewelry of a well known brand for women's accessories. She says that the sales are good, and her daughter is the manager of the business that supplies her, and so she buys the jewelry at the lowest prices. This is why she does this, helped by her daughter. She is very happy that while she sells the jewels to acquaintances and friends she is able to care for her small grandson, as her daughter entrusts him to Rosa while she works. Although she is sacrificing to care for her small grandson, for a long time she has had many plans for the future, like growing her sales in order to improve her earnings This is the 7th loan that she has had with MFP and she promises to make her payments punctually, as she doesn't want to displease the people who make possible the support that will permit her to continue working in search of progress. Rosa has planned to invest the requested loan in the purchase of a larger quantity of costume jewelry, and she wants to buy new models in order to offer the best to her clients, and in this manner she hopes to continue moving forward.
