Isaias
Isaías, who is 40 years old, lives with his wife and two school-aged children. They all live together in their own home in Quimbiri, located in the beautiful Cusco jungle. Isaías is a person who likes to share his knowledge with all those who ask; he doesn't keep secrets nor is he stingy with his teachings. He likes to be free, and has passed that on to his students. There's a reason he worked as a teacher for 15 years! Many of his former students are now at the university, about which Isaías feels very proud. In spite of the fact that he doesn't receive a good salary, he teaches because he loves his profession. As Isaías says, "money can't buy knowledge; it is only gained through dedication and the love of continuous study." He normally works in his educational institution from 8:00 in the morning until 1:30 in the afternoon, after which he gives extra classes to students who come from different schools. This extra money allows him to cover his family's food allowance. Parallel to this work, he owns a store that he runs jointly with his wife, who takes care of the customers. He wants to expand his store and stock up on various products to stabilize his business. This is his first loan with MFP, and he is committed to paying his installments on the pre-set dates. In addition, he is pleased with the other opportunities that the institution offers. With the requested loan, he plans to invest in the purchase of more products with the purpose of stocking up his business.
