Guillermo
Guillermo is 57 years old and lives with his wife Martha and two children, who are single and work to pay their own expenses and provide support at home. Guillermo prepares and sells homemade sweets – such as donuts, cookies, cakes, etc. These delicious pastries are made with the help of his wife and then baked in the oven he built in his home. In order to market his products, he hired three people to sell them in different parts of the district. Guillermo enjoys his work because he feels useful. Eight years ago, he suffered an accident and was not able to work on a regular basis. He began saving money a little bit at a time until he had enough to start a bakery. Now that he has his own business, he is able to earn a decent income.


This is his 4th loan with MFP. He enjoys working with his communal bank group, in whom he has had great confidence from the first moment he began working with them. All of them have been responsible with their payments. With the money he is requesting, Guillermo will buy large quantities of ingredients needed to prepare his sweets – flour, starch, oil, eggs, sugar and other items.

Guillermo tiene 57 años de edad, vive con su esposa Martha y con sus 2 hijos que son solteros, pero trabajan para solventar sus gastos propios y apoyar en su hogar. Guillermo se dedica a la preparación y venta de dulces caseros; como rosquillas, biscochos, biscochuelos, etc., estos deliciosos postres los elabora con la ayuda de su esposa, para luego llevarlos al horno que él mismo construyó en su casa. Para la comercialización de estos dulces, cuenta con 3 personas quienes se dedican a venderlos por los diferentes lugares de su zona. A Guillermo le gusta su trabajo porque de esa manera se siente útil, ya que hace 8 años atrás sufrió un accidente que no le permitió seguir laborando regularmente. Pero ahora con su propio negocio, está obtiendo ganancias muy satisfactorias, las cuales está ahorrando poco a poco para llegar a tener una panadería. Este es su 4to préstamo con MFP y lo que le gusta de trabajar con su banco comunal es que sus compañers le inspiranron confianza desde el primer momento que empezó a trabajar con ellos, además que todos son muy responsables con sus pagos. Con el dinero que ahora solicita comprará grandes cantidades de los ingredientes necesarios para la preparación de sus dulces; como harina, almidón, aceite, huevos, azúcar, entre otros.
