A loan of $1,150 helped buy more beauty products to augment her stock.


Susy's story

Susy is 29 years old and lives with her parents and small son in her own house in the locality of Chilca, where she has lived since early childhood.

Susy is a very independent woman and she is forging ahead for the future of her family. She works in a consultancy where she earns good money. But her parallel activity is selling beauty products by catalog, as she has done for many years. Susy has many clients who each month, buy the products she offers. As a very intelligent woman, she always offers discounts and in this way, obtains more customers who buy more products. In addition, Susy also sells linens and clothing by catalog. Now she wishes to improve her income by buying more products at a lower price, so that she can offer discounts in future campaigns.

Susy belongs to “The Entrepreneurs” solidarity group; this is her 16th loan through MFP, and she hopes with this loan to achieve her objectives. Moreover, Susy promises to comply with her schedule of payments, as she has in previous loans. Susy is grateful to be part of her association because all the members are responsible and supportive persons.

And what will she buy with this money? Susy will invest the loan in purchasing beauty products to sell to her clients.
