In the short time he was at the factory, he learned everything necessary about heavy machinery maintenance, which has helped him to learn a little more money as in his free time he offers this service to different factories in the capital.

He has now started the process of opening his own textile factory, as he has a sewing machine and will very soon be buying more machines to set up his small workshop. For now, he is making polo-shirts in every size and style.

He belongs to the "Telarmachay" communal bank, and this is his second loan with MFP. He is sure he will be able to achieve his objectives, and this is why he promises to be punctual in his repayments.

On receiving the support, Bequer will invest the requested money in purchasing an industrial sewing machine, which will reduce the time it takes him to make his polo-shirts.
