Janina's story

Janina, 26 years old, is a happy and very responsible woman. She lives with her partner and is the mother of two children, who are 1 and 5 years old. Together, she, her partner, and their two children live in their own house. Every day, she and her partner work as hard as they can to bring their children a better quality of life. Her work consists of making and mending clothing. Friends, neighbors, and family members use her services, and her work is going very well, even though she has been doing it for six months. She does a good job, and this has succeeded in winning her customers. What she likes about her work is that she can spend her time as she wants, since she is independent. This way, she can be with her children, who are still very small and need her care. This will be her 12th loan with MFP. Things are going well with her group, since everyone is very responsible and always makes payments on time. With the amount requested, she will purchase sewing materials, among them cotton fabric and thread of various colors.
