A loan of $500 helped to buy a display case for her beauty products/Compra de una vitrina para sus productos de belleza.

Maria's story

Maria is 23 years old and she lives with her husband and their little 2 year old son, who is her inspiration to move on. She sells a line of very nationally well-known beauty products from catalogs in all their varieties (perfumes, talks, cremes, and other things). She brings these products to the different zones of Pucallpa where she sells them on credit or with an I.O.U. She works alone for hours, and she has been doing this for 2 years. What she likes about her work is that she gets to know a lot of the people and the places that she goes to. Her work is quite profitable and she is doing well. This is her second loan through MFP where she has been punctual with her repayments. She now wants to buy more beauty products as well as a display cabinet so that they will be more secure and better shown off.
