A loan of $575 helped to buy more clothing.

Clementina's story

Clementina, 46, is a modest and hardworking woman. She lives with her husband Víctor, 47, and her four children in the house that they managed to buy with great effort. Clementina is a fighter. With great effort and perseverance, after 15 years she got her clothing store in the town of Palmapampa, where she offers the best variety.

She knows there is competition with her other friends who work in the same job; beyond that she manages to serve her customers kindly and patiently. This is how she happens to have customers who visit her at the end of every month, because they know that on those days she gets exclusive clothing that is in style in the city of Lima. Her plans for the future are to be able to expand her store and vary her sales, selling more clothing and shoes.

This will be her sixth loan with MFP and she guarantees she will be punctual as up to now. She also says she is happy with her communal bank because everyone is very responsible.

With the money she will buy more articles of clothing because she is without merchandise and this does not help her at all with her profits.
