A loan of $375 helped to buy more clothes.

Gina's story

Gina is 30 years old. She is an entrepreneurial and very hard-working woman. She is the single mother of a 10-year-old boy who is her motivation to live and work as she would like to provide him with a better quality of life and a good education. They live together in their own home which they shares with her two sisters who help her with some of the household expenses. Gina's business is selling clothes which she buys in the city of Lima and then sells to friends, neighbors, family members, and work colleagues as she works for a local institution.

Gina has been working for ten years, selling the very latest designs which are to the taste of most of her customers. She hopes that you will help her once again so that she can invest in her business. Her goal is to have a grocery store and a clothes stall in a market in her town. This will be her fourth loan from MFP and she hopes that you will help her to develop her business. Gina will use the sum she has requested to buy merchandise to display so that her customers have more choices.
