Ricardo's story

Ricardo is 42 years old and lives with his wife Jeny and their young son in their own house. For 4 years, he has sold animals in the Central Market in the city of Lima, where he offers beautiful puppies, hamsters, cats, turtles, etc. He decided to pursue this business because he always liked animals. What he enjoys most is spending time with them. Because of this, his work doesn’t make him very tired. The difficult part of his business is that sometimes the animals become ill and he must take care of them. Ricardo would have liked to be a veterinarian, but his work is the most similar to this dream. Happily, his wife and son share his love for animals, so they always work together to go forward. This is his fourth loan with MFP, and he has been very punctual in all of his repayments. With the money that he is now requesting, he will buy Shitzu dogs to raise and, later, sell at a higher price.
