Carlos's story

Carlos is 53 years old. He is a responsible and hardworking man. He lives in his own home with his wife and 6 children. His profession is that of a bricklayer, and he is a specialist in making floors, columns, roofs, taking up bricks and coating walls in cement. When he was still young, he worked as an assistant, gaining experience in the profession and presently it is his main source of income, allowing him to support his family. His efficiency and effort at work has allowed him to gain customers who are very satisfied, and they have recommended Carlos to their friends. He enjoys his work; he has spent 35 years doing it and his biggest problem is letting jobs go due to a lack of materials. In the future, he plans on adquiring machinery to install mayolica tiles and in this way increase his profits. This is his tenth loan with MFP, and he is committed to making his payments as he has done thus far. He has no problems with the other members of the group, because they are very responsible people. With this loan that he will receive, he plans on buying materials and in this way be able to work calmly and quickly.
