Jesus's story

Jesús is 23 years old. He lives in his parent’s house, and although he is still very young, he already knows that if you want to have a good life, you have to work very hard. There’s nothing better than a meal accompanied by a good wine, and Jesús knows this well. Enjoying the great variety of our cuisine, he sells wines of very good quality. He goes door-to-door in the hopes that people will buy his product. He likes to joke with his customers and is very friendly and fun. In the future, he would like to have a liquor store where he could sell more and offer a better variety to his customers. He already has three years in this business, and it’ll soon be time to grow. Jesús feels that the most difficult part of his job is convincing people to buy the wines, but he is not daunted and continues what he does, knowing that he is on the right path. This is the second loan that Jesús has obtained from MFP, and he has the capacity to meet all his payments. He is one of the most active members in his community bank. For this, he is appreciated and respected. With the thousand Nuevos Soles requested, he will buy more and better wines, to offer his customers only quality products.
