A loan of $600 helped to buy supplies.


Rocio's story

Rocío is 22 years old and a very responsible young woman. She has been living with her mother and brothers in a rented home for the past 10 years. A few years ago she got the idea to open a salon in partnership with her mother. She always wanted to have her own business that would produce the necessary income to help her family. She has been working in sales and services since she was a teenager and she decided to apply what she knew. Her salon is located in the city’s central zone and it is welcomed there. Her main difficulty is that the space is very small. She plans to rent a spacious salon where she can provide better service to her customers. She is a member of the “Manantiales de Ullusca” communal bank and this will be her sixth loan through MFP. She is grateful for the financial support. It will help her improve her business, so she promises to make her payments on time. Rocío will invest the money from this loan to buy combs, brushes, and other supplies.
