A loan of $350 helped purchase materials for his auto shop.


Daniel's story

Daniel is 32 years old and lives by himself in a rental home. Four years ago, he started his own auto paint and body shop. His business focuses on improving car exteriors. Previously, he worked as an employee at a different repair shop, but he gathered his savings to fulfill his dream of owning his own shop where he could direct his own work efforts.

Daniel works all day, everyday and only rests on Sundays. He is a responsible person and produces high-quality work. As a result, he has attracted new clients requesting his services. Daniel is saving money to purchase a new paint spray gun and better tools.

This is the third time that he is requesting a loan with MFP. He is very committed to the development of his community bank because he is a member of the board of directors. The requested loan will be used to purchase car paint and the paint gun valve. The cost of both items is more than the requested amount, but he will pay for the rest with his savings.
