Predislindo's story

Predislindo, 47 years of age, is a happy man and is eager to get ahead in life. He lives in his own house in company of her wife Virginia (46) and three young children: Jessica (27), Gisela (23) and Joani (17). From a young age, he learned to make furniture; in the beginning he would observe the master craftsmen in the workshops and was able to learn the technique very well. It has been 20 years now and this trade generates good profits for him; because of his experience, his customers recommend him to other customers, since his chairs, sofas, tables and armoires are of good quality and strong. Predislindo is satisfied because he has been able to get ahead working in a trade that he is passionate about and where he works by himself, in the peace and quiet of his workshop. Since he is a man that is always planning ahead, he plans to expand his business and hire assistants to fulfill a higher quantity of orders. This is his first loan with MFP and he is sure he will make his payments on time, since he wants to get ahead by working hard. For this purpose, he plans to invest his loan in buying tubes (metal furniture), paint, wood, and other materials in order to fulfill the furniture orders he has now.
