Rosmery's story

Rosmery, 23, is a hard-working, very cheerful woman who is anxious to get ahead. She is single and lives with her parents and 18-year-old brother, who is in school. The parents own the home. Rosmery sells different styles of women's clothing which are sent to her from the city of Lima by a friend so she saves on travel expenses. She sells the clothing to friends and relatives who are her main customers, sometimes on an order basis, and has been in business for a year. What she likes most about her work is that she has her own income and can cover personal expenses, also the fact that she has free time to do other things. What she likes least about her business is lack of puntuality among some of her credit customers, but this does not affect her payments because she is very responsible. She feels her business is profitable because she has a regular customer base and hopes to open a clothing store in the commercial area in downtown Pucallpa. This is her first loan through the MFP institution. She is grateful for the financial support so she can grow her business and is committed to paying the loan back on time so she can request more loans. The 1,000 PEN loan will be used to buy women's clothing in bulk at lower prices to increase her earnings.
