Adela's story

Adela is 48 years old and a single mother. She takes care of her son Jeanpier in her parents' house, where she lives for 20 years. Her main feature is her vitality and the desire to get ahead. She hasn't aged a bit, because she needs all the strength to get her son ahead, who is a child with many skills. For this reason, she wants to give him good education. Her main economic activity is the sale of clothing wholesale and retail. "I used to have a grocery store but I didn't have much income, that's why I decided to close", she says. She already has five years of experience selling clothes and also beauty products. During this time, she managed to get regular customers who place orders that Adela brings to the city of Tacna where she buys the clothing at half price, so this business has a lot of profits. She belongs to the solidarity group "rompiendo fronteras" [breaking frontiers] and this is her loan number eight with MFP. She hopes to get its collaboration to continue with her goals. On the other had, she promises to meet installment payments. Also, she likes to be part of an association because all its members are responsible and supportive people. Adela will invest the money requested in buying leather jackets of all variety, price and color to continue selling them.
