Luis
43-year old Luis lives in his own house with his wife María and their five children, Rosmery, Miyube, Magaly, Neils and Jesús. For the past five years Luis has earned his living building houses, as an assistant at first, but as time passed and he completed his apprenticeship, he became a qualified builder. He now manages projects with help from three assistants. He says he really enjoys his work as he earns good money and his skills are much sought after. The houses he has completed are always very well done as he has his own tools to do the best work possible.

As well as this work, Luis raises cattle and sheep which he sells in the local markets. His wife provides him with great support in this venture. Without ever neglecting their children, she keeps watch over the livestock.

In the future Luis plans to expand his construction business. This is his fourth loan with MFP, and he is very grateful to all those people who make the loans possible so he can continue his work. For this reason he promises to make his repayments punctually.

He will use the money to buy construction material (wood, sand) so he can complete his building projects.
