Esther's story

Esther, 28, is a young woman who is a dreamer and very friendly. She lives with her partner and has two children of 9 and 5 years. She has her own house where she lives with her two children and her partner, with whom she works to provide her children with a better quality of life. Esther's work consists of selling sandals, shoes, slippers, and more. She offers every type of footwear in many colors, sizes, and models for women, men, and children. She works as a traveling salesperson in a market near her house, and also has a stand that her partner attends to while she goes out to offer her merchandise. Between their friends, neighbors, and clients, she has managed to consolidate the business during the years she's worked. She has managed this business for more than seven years, and luckily it is going very well. She enjoys doing her work now that her effort has been rewarded with the good income she receives. Now she needs some additional help because she wants to increase products for the approaching Christmas season. Her biggest objective is that her businesses prospers in both the infrastructure and the quantity of merchandise so she can offer a wide variety of articles to her clients. This is her third loan with MFP. She is very grateful to the people who provide the financing she needs to make her plans concrete. On her side, she commits to complete the quota payments punctually and hopes to continue working with her communal bank for the friendship and solidarity she finds between every one of its participants.

With the 1500 soles she is requesting, she will buy a large quantity of comfortable sandals and shoes as merchandise.
