Jacqueline's story

Jacqueline, 29 years old, is a good woman, kind and very dynamic. She is single and does not have children. She lives with her mother, whom she hopes to provide a better quality of life. The live together in a rented space.

Jacqueline's business consists of selling used footwear, such as shoes, slippers, sandals, and others. She brings all these products back from the capital and looks for the best styles according to what she likes and needs. She sells them in her rented shop, always attending her clients with a smile on her face. For this reason she has many clients and makes many sales.

She began by selling secondhand products, but with time her capital was increasing and she now sells footwear. She has had the business for more than three years and hopes to continue doing this for a long time.

She considers her business profitable due to the good earnings it provides her as well as for the regular clients that turn up daily to her store. She enjoys her work very much since it allows her sufficient income to pay her bills, besides helping her feel like a productive person. She hopes to become a prosperous businesswoman. She has good sales and that permits her to have good income. She hopes to buy her own house and open her business there.

So, this will be her second loan with MFP. She is very happy to know that she will have financial support that will allow her to feel more secure and advance with her goals. She promises to make her payments on-time. In addition, she will look for ways to get more involved with her community bank, whose members are very supportive.

With the amount requested, 600 dollars (1500 nuevos soles), she will buy used footwear for both gentlemen and ladies, like slippers, shoes, and sandals, in order to increase the variety that she offers. She will look for low prices in a bulk purchase that will increase her profit margins.
