Hector
Héctor is 63 years old and lives in his own home with his wife Alicia (age 52) and their daughter Catherine (age 33). His younger son Christopher (age 22) does not live with them.


Six years ago, he opened a small grocery store in his home where he sells different kinds of candy, snacks, sodas, and other basic necessities. He was encouraged by the fact that his business would not face any other competition in the area. Héctor decided to start his own business since he had trouble finding work because of problems with his hearing. He finds managing his business to be quite peaceful and also has the help of his wife and daughter. Despite his age, Héctor has many projects planned to improve the quality of life for his family.


This is his first loan with MFP. Héctor promises to complete each of his payments on time because he wants to receive subsequent loans for as long as he can. He plans to use the money he requested to buy merchandise so that he can increase his inventory and offer a greater variety of products to his customers.

Héctor, de 63 años, vive en su casa propia al lado de su esposa Alicia (52) y su hija Catherine (33), pues su hijo menor Christopher (22) no vive con ellos.
Hace 6 años instaló en su vivienda una pequeña tienda de comestibles donde vende toda clase de golosinas, snack, gaseosas y otros comestibles de primera necesidad. Se animó con este negocio porque no había competencia por la zona donde vive y como no encontraba trabajo debido a un problema que tiene en el oído decidió tener un negocio propio. Ésta es una actividad tranquila, además la realiza con la ayuda de su esposa y de su hija. Y a pesar de su edad tiene muchos proyectos en mente para mejorar la calida de vida de su familia.

Este es su primer préstamo con MFP, por lo que se compromete a ser puntual en el pago de cada una de sus cuotas, ya que quiere seguir sacando préstamos con esta entidad. Héctor tiene pensado invertir el dinero que solicita en la compra de mercadería para surtir mejor su negocio y de esta manera poder ofrecer mayor variedad de productos a sus clientes.
