A loan of $725 helped buy wood.


Albino's story

Albino is 38, married, and has three children. He lives in Palmapampa (central Peruvian jungle) in his own house.

Resting on his laurels was never an option for him. In previous years he worked in farming, but now he works in the area of building. Counting both activities, he has 20 years of arduous work. At times he receives help from his relatives, but he always takes care of his helpers when he works.

He is happy with his work. It inspires a lot of creativity and innovation when he wants to make a piece of furniture according to his customers’ tastes and preferences. That is why it is going very well for him in his business, and he gets good results. In the future he wants to set up a carpentry shop. He wants to get modern tools that will allow him to generate a greater volume of furniture in a shorter time.

This is his second loan with MFP, and he promises to keep making his payments. He will use the money he is requesting to buy more wood in order to finish his orders.
