He is currently separated from his wife, and what he most wants is to be able to offer a good future to his dear daughter. Efraín mentioned that he used to work as an employee in a firm that repaired all sorts of electronic goods. Now he has his own workshop where he repairs all sorts of appliances, and his speciality is fixing chilling appliances such as fridges, freezers, and cold stores. Using the knowledge and experience he has gained over the course of years, he leaves them as good as new. Efraín mentioned that he is helped in his workshop by a friend who is in charge of dismantling the appliances so that he can repair them and leave them good as new. He has been doing this for 27 years and thinks that the most difficult thing is getting the parts that each appliance requires and he will use the credit to buy valves and bolts for making repairs.

This will be his 8th loan from MFP and he hopes that he will once again have the financial support to keep advancing and growing economically. He is also strengthened by his community bank as all the members are seeking to grow their businesses. He will use the loan money to buy parts to repair different brands of each appliance.
