Maria's story

María, 40, is a good, kind and enterprising woman. She lives with Milton, 40, and they have a 21 year old son called Cristian who they provide education for and her wish is to see him become a professional. She lives with her family in a house of her own where she works hard because she wants to have a better quality of life.

María’s work consists in making publicity panels, giant banners and posters. She has customers that always seek her out and want her to use her imagination and creativity to create publicity or to promote some new product. She has recently acquired very good customers who as time has passed have become regular due to the good service and excellent work she does. She’s been in business 12 years. At the beginning it was pretty complicated to learn the business but in time through trial and error she learned how to maximize profits and to keep her customers satisfied always. She enjoys her work because she’s in constant movement and this makes he feel always young and very useful in her business.

Although she does well because of her good sales, a few weeks ago she suffered some problems because she did not have enough capital to fulfill an order she got from a very good customer and she was unable to close a good deal. Happily, she once again has the opportunity to be able to do so this month and this is why she wants to increase capital so that she can fill all her orders.

This will be her second MFP loan. She’s very happy to know that she will have financial support because she’ll have peace of mind when it comes to make her monthly work projection. On the other hand, she commits to continue being a punctual client like she’s been with the previous loans she’s had.

She will use the requested 4000 new soles to buy materials, equipment and accessories to set up the workshop because she wants o fill all the orders she has and be able to respond to customer demand.
