Ruth's story

Ruth, 27, is a good natured and kind woman. She is single with no children, and lives with her parents with whom she shares the joy of life. She works hard every day, and her greatest desire is to provide a better quality of life for her parents.

In the block where Ruth lives there are always some important events going on, and everyone is the the area is involved. Her sales increase in the holidays, as she receives orders for clothing of the greatest variety, quality and design. She always has a new style to offer, and all of her clothes are very fashionable. She has had this business and for six years, and she does it alone. During her time working, she has learned that when clients are not in search of clothes, she has to leave the house because she cannot keep her garments at home for too long.

Ruth hopes to continue working hard and in future she wants a place where she can sell her garments more comfortably. This loan will be her second with MFP, and she is very happy to know that she has financial support as she feels more assured of advancing her business. On her part, she is committed once again to remain a responsible member and comply with the payment schedule. With the requested amount of 1000 soles, Ruth will buy merchandise to continue offering to her customers, and she wants to renew her designs to offer fashionable products to her clients.
