Eliza's story

Eliza, 36 years old, is a happy woman, an entrepreneur wanting to excel. She is separated but living with her 10 year old son and her family, which is why she strives to move forward, living comfortably in the home of her parents. Eliza buys and sells clothes and shoes for ladies, gentlemen and children from various models, which she distributes on credit amongst her neighbors and friends, counting many customers. This activity is carried out from her home, home delivery and sometimes walking. She's been in the business for 8 years, time in which she has become known for the quality of garments sold and that it is performed alone. What she likes about this activity is that it generates income and she does not have competition in the area, giving her more profit. She is happy because it has brought her much satisfaction and has taken her from many economic hardships; she has the desire to continue working and to expand her business. This would be the 10th loan with the MFP institution; she is very pleased with the opportunity afforded to her, for which she agrees to be punctual with her payments. Also, she feels comfortable with her communal bank because its members are considered to be responsible and caring people. With the money requested of 1000 nuevos soles, she will buy a larger quantity of feminine and masculine, in various models that are in style.
