Roy
Roy is 31 years old and lives with his partner and mother of their 4 year old son, who is his biggest motivation to keep going. He buys lumber and sells it to various companies that need it for their construction jobs. In order to do this, Roy travels to different villages in his area to buy lumber as well as other products such as fish, poultry, and pigs to sell in the city. Roy has been in business for 3 years and is doing very well. What he likes most about his job is working alone because it comes without the pressure of a boss. His business remains profitable because the price of wood has remained stable and he already has an established clientele.


This is Roy’s 5th loan with MFP. He likes working with his Communal Bank because there is great camaraderie among all the members and he feels comfortable with them. He will be using his loan to buy more lumber to increase his sales.

Roy tiene 31 años, vive con su pareja y madre de su hijo de 4 añitos de edad, quien es su mayor motivación para seguir adelante. Se dedica a la compra y venta de madera a las distintas empresas que la requieren para hacer diversos trabajos de construcción. Para ello, una vez por semana, Roy tiene que viajar por los distintos caseríos de su zona para comprar la madera y aprovecha ese viaje para adquirir otros productos como pescado, aves y cerdos para venderlos en la ciudad. En esta labor lleva un periodo de 3 años y le va muy bien, pues lo que más le gusta es que trabaja solo, sin la presión de un jefe, además que su negocio le resulta rentable porque la madera mantiene su precio y ya tiene compradores estables. Este es su 5to préstamo con MFP y le gusta de trabajar con su banco comunal porque se siente cómodo y porque hay mucho compañerismo entre todos los integrantes. Con el dinero que viene solicitando comprará más madera para incrementar sus ventas.
