Asuncion's story

Asunción, 33, is a happy and very dynamic woman. She lives with her partner with whom she has two children, ages 16 and 8. Together they live on his mother's property, where they built a house for him and his family. She and her partner work a lot, since they want to get ahead and give their children a good education and nourishment.

Asunción's work consists of selling clothing, a business she offers to friends, family, and neighbors, in addition to new customers who always come to her house every time the merchandise arrives from the city of Lima. In general she sells articles that are in style and of the best quality.

She has been working with this for two years and six months now, and up to now she has done it alone. What she likes about her job is that she has time to do many different things. Besides, she has independence. On the other hand, her loyal customers bring her new customers and this gives an advantage to her business.

This will be her third loan with MFP. She is very happy to work with the group she's with and she hopes to be able to continue working longer. In addition, she is very grateful for the confidence offered her personally and she hopes to be able to continue being punctual and not let you down.

With the requested total, she will buy more clothing wholesale, since that way she gets it at a better price.
