Edson's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy herbs and ingredients to make more natural remedies.
Edson, 28 years old, is an honest, hardworking and responsible man. He is single, with no children. He lives in his parents’ home. He works a lot because he wants to offer the best to his parents and support them with the household expenses. Edson has two activities in which he divides his time. The first is working for a government entity, for which he receives a monthly income. But in the evenings he makes a living making natural medicine products as a street vendor. The formula he uses to make these products is a secret, but according to his customers, they are so good that they regularly ask for more and in some cases even recommend him to other people. He has been running this business for two years. He started this in order to increase his income, since what he earned in his job he was not enough to get ahead. He enjoys what he does, since it allows him time to carry out both his jobs. He is very happy with the customers that he has been able to acquire in the period of time that he has worked, and would like to continue like this. His goal is to set up a store where he can offer his products in a more comfortable way. This will be the fourth loan with MFP. He is very happy to know that he will have financial support, since through it he will feel secure in advancing his business, and he is committed one more time to fulfilling the repayment of his loan, as he did with the previous credit. He also likes being part of his communal bank because all of the members are very responsible people and have solidarity. With the amount for which he has applied, he will buy more ingredients and herbs to continue making natural remedies, since in the last months he has had a lot of orders and he would like to fulfill all of them.
