Lita's story

Lita is 50 years old. She is a dynamic and very enthusiastic woman. She is married and has five children who are already adult. Currently, she lives in her own house along with two of her children and her husband.

Her job consists of selling shoes and clothing. For this, she goes out to visit her friends, neighbors and relatives with the aim to sell to them some clothes or shoes. She's been doing this job for more than eight years and during this time she has learned many things that she uses to improve every day. When she is not working in the streets, she is dedicated to selling from her house since she has a glass case and a counter where she exhibits her merchandise. All of the items that she puts on sale are sent from another city by her husband who is in charge of selecting the best models to then send in large bags. She works alone and feels very comfortable doing so since it allows her to have time to be at her children's side and to not neglect her house work.

This is an individual loan that she has with MFP and she is very happy and thankful for the financial support that they are providing. Additionally, she is convinced that she will keep being a client who is responsible and punctual with repayments. With the amount requested, 3000 new "soles," she will buy clothing, shoes and some other items to keep offering new designs and models to her customers.
