A loan of $600 helped to buy fabric and thread for her embroidery business.


Liz's story

Luz, 32, is a responsible woman who lives with her young daughter in a house that she recently inherited. She comes from a family of artisans who work with embroidery, and so she has always had ties to this type of work. She was trained in this art from the time she was a child, and now she is an adult who is prepared to face life. This is why she will continue with her embroidery art, decorating petticoats such as the ones typically worn in the local festivities, such as the Santiago dance festival. She is always preparing these garments, offering her embroidered products to the traditional dance troupes in the various schools in her area. Her desire is to expand her sales opportunities, so that with her earnings she can pay for the education of her small daughter, who is 6 years old.

At this time, Luz wants to continue to work with great care, because she wants to open a costume rental shop. This is her 17th loan with MFP, where she awaits your cooperation so that she can continue toward her goals. Also, she promises once more to comply with the payment terms of her loan. Luz appreciates being part of her communal bank, because all of the members are responsible and supportive.

Luz will invest this money in the purchase of fabrics and thread for her embroidery business, because if she buys in bulk she can get the supplies at a much lower cost and thus increase her profits.
