Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth, 48, is dedicated mother. She lives in her own house with her 2 children, Miguel, 22, and Patricia, 21, who she hopes to proviD. with good careers. She operates a business selling beauty products door to door. She's a very good saleswoman and always convinces her customers to buy her products. Elizabeth works tirelessly every day because she hopes to set up a store soon where she can sell her products without having to work house to house since walking outsiD. in the hot sun is the part of her job that she likes least. She's operated the business for 10 years and the part of her job that she likes best is meeting her customers and telling them about new products that have arrived and their benefits. Elizabeth knows that if she works hard, she'll be able to proviD. her children with good careers so they can get ahead in life. This is her first MFP loan and she doesn't want to miss paying her installments. She's very responsible within her community bank, always concerned about the well-being of the other members. She will use the 700 soles that she's applied to borrow to buy more beauty products so that she can have a wider range to sell.
