Carlos's story

Carlos is 24 years old and lives with his parents. His wife Karol is 23 years old and the love of his life. The couple has an energetic little boy who is also named Carlos, who just turned one year old.

Carlos has managed to succeed by pursuing his passion – music. This has allowed him to support his family and provide peace of mind. As a little boy, his interest started by banging on a small drum. Music has been an unavoidable part of his life since then. Carlos now engages in his music every day and has been performing professionally for 3 years at various events, artistic shows, and family reunions.

Sometimes he performs with his group “Los Cómplices del Sabor” (The Accomplices of Flavor), which consists of four young members. They add excitement to any occasion and also provide some spice to weekend events attended by large numbers of people looking to have a good time. Carlos has great aspirations for his musical career. He knows that he can continue to grow and eventually become famous in the musical world. First he wants to trademark the name of his group and modernize his sound equipment sometime in the future.

Carlos is taking his sixth loan with MFP. He says that he will continue to be punctual, as always, because he wants to succeed and making a living from his music. He plays a number of instruments very well and can produce melodies for just about any dance. Carlos will use the money to fulfill his aspirations by buying new speakers, mixers, and amplifiers to improve his sound quality.
