Jaime
Jaime is 50 years old. He lives with his wife and two daughters who attend university. To increase his income, he left his country trying to forge a more promising future, but the economic crisis forced him to return to Peru.

Soon after, he opened up a restaurant that, even though is only six months old has attracted a large number of costumers. This is mostly due to the seasoning that Jaime’s wife makes. She is the one who prepares the delicious meals and Jaime attends to the costumers with respect and joviality. They work together every day from 8am until 10pm, sharing the work as a couple.

One of their dreams is to have an automobile to carry the supplies they purchase for the restaurant and, during Jaime’s free time, to use it as a taxi to generate additional income.

This would be the first loan with MFP and Jaime is very happy for the opportunity and trust. The loan would give them the chance to grow along with their business. He will use the loan to buy utensils and tables for the restaurant.

Jaime tiene 50 años, vive con su esposo y sus dos hijas quienes cursan estudios superiores. Para incrementar sus ingresos económicos tuvo que irse de su país a forjar un futuro prometedor, pero la crisis económica le obligó a regresar a Perú y en poco tiempo implementó un restaurante, el cual apenas tiene 6 meses de funcionamiento, pero ya tiene gran cantidad de clientes, lo cual es resultado de la exquisita sazón que posee la esposa de Jaime, pues ella es la autora de los diversos platos que ofrecen, mientras que él es quien atiende a los clientes y lo realiza con mucha alegría y respeto. Así trabajan juntos todos los días, desde las 8 de la mañana hasta las 10 de la noche, tiempo que disfrutan compartiendo sus actividades como pareja. Los sueños de esta familia es tener un auto para realizar sus compras y en los tiempos libres Jaime pueda trabajar haciendo taxi con la finalidad de tener ingresos adicionales. Este es su primer crédito con MFP y está muy contento por la oportunidad y confianza brindada, pues este dinero le da la posibilidad que crecer en su negocio. Con la cantidad solicitada comprará algunos utensilios y mesas para su restaurante.
