Manuela's story

Manuela, 33, is a woman who is very friendly, kind, and above all, responsible. She a single mother with a 13 year-old daughter. She lives in her aunt's house, and she helps her with the household expenses. Manuela has a business selling lingerie. She has a lot of friends in the center where she works, and she sells a lot of her garments there. She has exclusive garments of unique designs and excellent quality, which is why her customers always seek out her merchandise. She has been working in this business for more than 3 years, and up until now she has done it alone. She has 2 places where she sells: in her house and in the school where she works as a teacher. What she likes about her work is that it gives her the time to carry out both jobs. Also, she is very pleased because it is going very well and the business is generating good earnings. However, she has some customers who are late with their payments. Her desire is to have her own clothing store. This will be her 6th loan with MFP, and she is content with her communal bank. She hopes to be able to continue being a responsible member who is punctual with her payments, as she has been up until now. She is grateful for the opportunity that that is being provided to her to have more working capital in her business, and she hopes to continue to work with Microfinanzas Prisma for a long time. With the sum requested, she will buy more lingerie merchandise, so that she can continue to offer the best to her loyal customers.
