Angel
Ángel is 57 years old and a friendly and hardworking man. He lives at home with his partner Flor who helps around the house. They have a 14 year old son who is in high school and they want to offer him a good education. Ángel works in constructing chicken coops. He builds them with wooden fiber known as "Quinilla" for support (a column made of wood). He uses leaves from a palm tree known as Shebón for the roof. He builds the coops in different places depending on where is is called. He comments that he began in this business with a friend who is an expert in building chicken coops. He was asked to be an assistant and since then they worked as partners. Now he signed a contract with a company that requested the construction of 10 chicken coops. He has been working in this business for 21 years. He considers this job to be profitable since he makes more and more chicken coops and is called upon frequently due to positive references. He had financial difficulties starting this business and could not afford the tools he needed. This limited his work but now he expects to stay in this business to continue making money. At the moment, this will be his 10th loan with the MFP Institution. He is very enthusiastic and wants to continue being punctual. He is thankful for the institution since he was able to get a loan from them to acquire the tools he needed to work. He plans on using the 2000 Peruvian soles loan to buy tools such as a saw, hammer, machete, drills, clippers, etc to build chicken coops and make profits.
