Wilfredo's story

Wilfredo is a man of 28 years who lives alone in a rented room, does not have children, and wants above all to move ahead.

Sweetening the lives of his clients with his rich chocolates, Wilfredo passes his days. Seated on a bench he undertakes his daily sales; he has a small location in the Santa Barbara market (the most important market of the city of Juliaca). It's now 3 years that he carries on this business and he feels it is time to expand. Wilfredo always takes a few chocolates from his location to eat himself while he works. He likes to joke with his clients and is very friendly and entertaining.

For the future he wants to have a sweets store where he can sell without fear of the rain arriving, since that is the most difficult season because he doesn't sell much. This is the second loan which Wilfredo has the opportunity of accessing from MFP and he feels capable of making all his repayments. He is one of the most active members in his community bank for which he is very much loved and respected. The two thousand new sols requested will be invested in the purchase of more chocolates so he can increase the quantity of products he has in his sales location.
