Monica's story

Monica, 35, is a happy and entrepreneurial woman. She lives with Ardí who works in transport. They live in their own house with their 9-month-old-son, whom she wants to provide with a good education.

Monica's work consists of the design, preparation and sale of ladies’, men’s and children’s clothing which she does in the premises of her house. She has been doing this for more than 5 years and it has helped her to generate the necessary income to help with the household expenses. She began this business with some friends who she contracted so that they could help her finish the many orders she had.

She considers her business profitable because companies request the tailoring of uniforms for their workers. As well, she has contracts with various schools in the city.

As a result, she is requesting a bank loan for the purchase of a sewing machine. Now, she dreams to someday make wedding dresses. Now this is her first loan with MFP, which she will invest it in the purchase of materials such as fabrics, silk laces, elastics, and threads to be able to create a good finish to her tailoring.
