A loan of $475 helped to buy bricks and to invest in his wife's business.

Jesus's story

Jesús, 30, lives with his wife and son in a rented house. For the last 4 years he has been employed as a brick maker. However, he has the option to buy the bricks he makes and sell them at a higher price. These profits allow him to support his family while his wife contributes too by embroidering traditional outfits. For the future, Jesús wants to have his own brick-making factory so that he can be master of his own time. This is his 6th loan with MFP and he has always been very punctual with his payments. The funds requested now will be used to buy bricks at wholesale and to help his wife buy the textile supplies she needs for her embroidery.
