Lehnerr's story

Lehnerr is 28 years old. He is single and has no children. He lives in the community of Santa Rosa, located in the beautiful jungle of Ayacucho. He owns his own home. He barely finished high school, but this did not stop him from following his dreams. He attained his goal of having his own carpentry shop where he makes all types of furniture, according to the tastes and preferences of his customers. As a result, his incomes is climbing. Normally he works with employees; in this way he minimizes the time and cost of making the furniture. His woodshop is located in his own house and is open Monday through Saturday from 7:00 in the morning until 8:00 at night. He is happy with what he is doing, and with his sales he is planning on expanding his carpenter shop so he can bring in machinery to facilitate the work. This is his fifth loan with MFP and he is committed to making the payments on time. He is also happy with his community bank, because they are responisble with their payments. He plans on investing the loan that he is asking for in purchasing wood of all different qualities so that he can finish his products in record time and meet the demands of his customers.
