Saliz
Saliz, 71, is a good, friendly and hard-working man. In spite of being of a mature age, he has no doubts about being able to generate his own income and not depend on anyone to be able to continue living. He is a widow and he lives alone in a rented house. He has two children who are older. He works a lot since he hopes to get some money together to be able to have a peaceful retirement.

Every day, Saliz goes to the market closest to his house, which is where he has a small candy booth. He also sells charcoal and drinks. He is very active since he is always in constant movement trying to nail down some business with his clients. He has been working for more than two years and during this time he has learned that he has to treat his clients well so that they will always return. He works alone since that way he earns more.

His business is going very well for him. He has very good sales and this allows him to have greater revenue. He would like to expand his products and offer a greater variety of things and drinks to his clients. This is why he still has it in mind to increase his business and make it grow. He remembers that before starting with his business he depended heavily on what his children gave him, but he was always a strong and enterprising man. He decided to generate his own income so that he would not have the need to get everything from his children.

This will be his sixth loan from MFP, which is why he hopes for their collaboration in order to continue with his goals. During his first loan cycle he met his communal bank peers and he knows they are very responsible and unified, and that is why he is very happy to belong to such a good group. With the amount requested of 1500 soles, he will buy more products such as cookies, candy, gum, etc. to be able to continue with his work. He will also buy a larger variety of drinks and improve his candy stand.
