Roberto
Roberto is 54, and he is married to María, 45. They live with their 18 year old son, Daniel, and their 16 year old son, Brayan, in their own house. This is a hard working couple that has been selling clothes for six years. During that time María decided to travel to the country of Chile where clothing is much cheaper. She brings the clothing back for her husband to sell in the city of Lima. The business has brought them good income. But, there has been much sacrifice because it is not at all easy to have to travel to a place so far away to bring back merchandise. It does turn out to be profitable, and thanks to this income they have been able to get ahead with their family. The customers know the quality of the clothing that they sell.

In the future, Roberto wants to buy a mini bus so that he can offer urban transportation in the city of Lima. He thinks that would be a very lucrative business.

This is his first individual loan with MFP, but he has previously worked with community banks. In community banks he gained much experience about organizing his earnings and being punctual in his payments.

With the money he is now asking for, his wife will travel to Chile to bring back a greater quantity of clothes.
