A loan of $1,050 helped buy construction materials.

Marcial's story

Marcial, 30, lives happily at the side of his 26 year old wife, Elsa, and their two children. Jafet is six, and Jhonfranco is 3. They live in a cozy house (their own) in a densely populated district in the city of Lima.

He is a civil engineer, and for four years he has been making molds for the wood casings for the sidewalks and curbs on the streets. The district municipalities contract him to work on the construction of new projects. People are contracted to help him. Marcial likes to do this work because the earnings are very good. He is passionate about his work. In the future he plans to build a contract construction business. He is already dealing with what the law requires so that he can work without problems.

This is his first loan with MFP. He promises to be punctual with each one of his payments because he plans on taking out more loans from this entity. He will use the money he is requesting to buy plywood and wooden strips to keep making his construction molds and to finish dealing with the documents for his business.
