Belisa's story

Belisa, 35 years old, is a hardworking woman and a good daughter. She lives in the company of her parents and brothers in their house and has since she was born. She lives together with her parents and looks after them with great care. Her principal economic activity centers on the sale of retail beauty products, that is to say she buys creams, jewels and perfumes in bulk, since in this way she can offer a better price to her customers, who very much like the bargains so they can buy more accessories. She already has seven years dedicated to this business. In all of this time she proved to be a responsible person and very committed to the wellbeing of her customers. “For this reason I have many customers,” she mentions very proudly.

Now she eagerly hopes to be able to acquire requested products since the Christmas season is already coming and she has to have products to be able to offer a good price. She belongs to the mutually supportive group “Mujeres Victorianas” and this is her fourth loan with MFP. She is very happy to have a financial support, since she has always proven to be responsible in her payments. Also she is grateful to be a part of her communal bank because all of the members are responsible and supportive. Belisa will invest the money in the purchase of a great quantity of beauty products by catalogue, as she needs stock to continue selling.
