Amilcar
Amilcar is fifty-five years old. He has three children with his wife, Maribel. They have rented the house where they live for the past four years. He is very well-known in his neighborhood since eighteen years ago he invented a very simple means of transporting cargo from agricultural areas to the city. It is called an "ecological wagon," and it is tied to the back of a donkey, which pulls the wagon, carrying many kilos of products.

"In all this time I sold approximately two thousand wagons throughout the valley, and I currently sell an average of three per week," Amilcar affirms happily. Demand is greatest during the planting season, and in the other months he spends his time making cages and little wood pieces for sale door-to-door, which is also how he markets his painting and welding work—"this is why they call me 'thousand-jobs,'" Amilcar comments.

This is his sixth loan with MFP and he is relieved by the support he receives, as well as grateful for the confidence that it gives him. He promises to comply with his debts in a punctual manner in order not to disappoint his group, which is made up of supportive and responsible people.

Amilcar will use the money from this loan to buy tires and wood wholesale in order to continue making his wagons.
View original language description ↓
Amilcar tiene 55 años, su esposa es Maribel, con quien tiene tres hijos. La casa donde viven la alquilan desde hace 4 años.
En su barrio es una persona muy reconocida, pues hace 18 años inventó una forma muy fácil para trasportar la carga de los terrenos agrícolas a la ciudad. Las llaman “carretas ecológicas”, son atadas al lomo del burro para que jale la carreta, cargando muchos kilos de productos. “En todo este tiempo vendí un promedio de dos mil carretas en todo el valle, y en la actualidad vendo un promedio de tres a la semana”, afirma con mucha alegría. En temporada de siembra tiene más acogida, los demás meses dedica su tiempo a la fabricación de jaulas y pequeños puestos de madera para la venta ambulante, como también realiza el trabajo de pintado y soldadura, “por eso me llaman mil oficios”, comenta Amilcar.

Este es su sexto crédito con MFP y se siente tranquilo por el apoyo que recibe, además de agradecer la confianza que le dan, prometiendo cumplir con sus cuotas de manera puntual, pues no defraudará a su grupo, conformado por personas solidarias y responsables.
Amilcar invertirá el dinero de este préstamo en la compra de llantas y madera, al por mayor, para seguir construyendo sus carretas.
