Francisco
Francisco is 62 years old and is a hardworking man with a very jovial spirit. He has six adult children and currently lives alone in a humble home that he was able to build though his efforts.

His business is selling fruit. His work begins with him buying regional fruits in quantity, mainly oranges and watermelons. He then peals the fruit and packages it up as fruit or juice. He does this on foot and also sets up in a shop. He has been doing this for 15 years and things have always gone well for him. He has been able to consolidate his wide customer base and this shows because he sells out every day. What he likes most about his work is that he is able to do other things in his home and use his spare time to do other jobs such as carpentry or masonry. What he doesn’t like is that at times he must go to the market early in the morning to be able to buy his products. He expects to continue working so that he can continue saving up so that he can have a peaceful old age in a business where he can work from home.

This will be his 18th loan through MFP and he appreciates those who make possible for him to continue with his objectives. On the other hand he is very committed to making his payments on time, as he has been doing in the past. He is very glad to belong to his communal bank because the other members are good, friendly, and united.

He will use the money from this loan (1,000 PEN) to buy oranges, mandarin oranges, watermelons, and grapes by the crate so that he can continue selling them. His daily investment is between 300 PEN and 500 PEN, depending on the season and the quality of the fruit.

Francisco tiene 62 años, es un hombre con un espíritu muy jovial y muy trabajador, tiene seis hijos que ya son mayores de edad. Actualmente vive solo en una humilde casa que ha podido edificar con el resultado de su esfuerzo.
Su negocio es la venta de frutas. Su labor empieza con la compra, al por mayor, de frutas regionales, principalmente naranjas y sandía; luego las pela y las coloca en envases, al natural o en jugos. Lo hace ambulatoriamente y también se coloca en un establecimiento fijo. Viene realizando este negocio desde hace 15 años y siempre le ha ido muy bien. La experiencia que ha logrado con el paso del tiempo le ha permitido consolidar una amplia clientela y eso se ve reflejado en que a diario termina todo lo que tiene. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es que tiene tiempo para poder realizar algunas otras actividades en su casa y dedicar, eventualmente, su tiempo libre a realizar trabajos de carpintería o albañilería. Lo que no le gusta es que a veces tiene que irse muy temprano al mercado para poder realizar la compra de sus productos. Espera continuar trabajando para seguir ahorrando lo necesario para tener una vejez tranquila en un negocio en el que pueda trabajar sin salir de su casa.

Este es su crédito número 18 con MFP, por tanto agradece a quienes hacen posible su crédito para continuar con sus objetivos. Por otro lado, está muy comprometido a cumplir con el pago puntual de sus cuotas como ha venido haciéndolo en todos sus créditos anteriores. Está muy contento de pertenecer a su banco comunal, ya que todos sus integrantes son muy buenos, amables y solidarios.
Con el monto solicitado (S/.1000) comprará naranjas, mandarinas, sandias y uvas por cajones para continuar vendiendo. Su inversión diaria varía entre 300 a 500 soles, dependiendo de la temporada y de la calidad de las frutas.
