Yeny's story

Yeny, age 31, is an exemplary daughter. She lives with her parents and three siblings, whom she supports. She studied systems engineering right out of school at her parents' urging. She confesses that she never enjoyed it, so she does not work in that field. She started a business selling clothing and beauty products from her home. In the beginning, it was very difficult to get clients. She offered her merchandise door-to-door. With time, thanks to her hard work, she has built up a customer base. Her customers seek her out and make orders. She now has a large uniform order. Now that things are going very well for her, she has decided to study a career that she has always loved: civil engineering. She has one year left and she is already working for the local government as a work supervisor. Thanks to her abilities, a group of architects has recently asked her to be part of their construction project. She will make a good income for the duration of the project. She is very happy and has many plans for specialization; "my journey is still beginning. I want to specialize in roads," she confirms. This is her second loan with MFP. She hopes to receive a small loan in order to obtain her goals and improve her business. She promises to be punctual in paying her quotas; she likes being part of this group.
Yeny will invest this loan in the purchase of varied clothing for the Christmas season. She already has orders.
