A loan of $1,100 helped to buy clothes and items for the home.


Carmen's story

Carmen, 54, is a charming woman; she’s very cheerful and dynamic. She lives with her spouse and is the mother of two children who are already independent adults. They live together in their own home. Her work consists in sale of clothes and articles for the home that are sold via catalogue. Her method of operating is selling on credit and then collecting payment after a certain time. On the other hand, she sometimes goes out herself to sell her wares among her friends, family members or coworkers in a state institution.

She’s been in this line of work for 10 years and she enjoys being in contact with the people. In the future, she’d like to set up a store at her house to have an additional source of income because she has in mind to go into commerce, that is, the sale of clothes and items for the home.

This is the 8th MFP loan so she hopes for support from each of you to stay in business. She will use the requested amount to buy items for the home and clothes.
