A loan of $400 helped to buy more shoes, clothes, and different flavors and brands of soft drinks.

Janina's story

Janina, age 25, is a very nice young woman. She has a two year old child, Meylin, and she lives in her own house with her life partner, 28 year old Carlos. She wishes to give her family a better quality of life. That is why she puts so much effort into her work every day. Janina sells clothes, shoes, and carbonated drinks. For a long time she suffered through some setbacks in her life. This is because she did not have her own income for her house. That is why, a year ago, she decided to start a new project with the hope of being successful.

She thought that her friends, neighbors, or relatives would like to buy shoes and clothes according to the season. That is how she started her business that now gives her very good results. Also, when she is at home she sells different flavors of soft drinks. She likes what she does because it allows her to have time to be with her little daughter. Also, ever since she started with her business, it has been going well for her financially because they now have two incomes for their household.

She wishes to continue growing. She is thinking of expanding her sales and being able to offer a greater variety and quality of clothes to her customers.

This will be her fourth loan with MFP. She hopes to receive your help in order to continue with her objectives. She pledges, once again, to make her payments punctually. She pledges to demonstrate, as in previous times, that she is a very good member. This way she will repay the support given by her communal bank, where all are very responsible and supportive.

She will use the requested 1,000 soles to buy more shoes, clothes, and different flavors and brands of soft drinks.
