Julio's story

Julio, age 48, lives in his own home with his two children. The younger child is a high school student. Together they strive to get ahead. This hardworking gentleman wakes up each day so that he can go to his job as an operator at a brick factory. He receives a considerable salary that allows him to provide a good quality of life for his family. In addition, he rents out Internet booths in his house during his spare time and operates the business with the help of his oldest child who is the primary manager. Julio says his Internet business generates good profits. For this reason, he plans to improve his facilities in the future and purchase more computers since there is no competition in the area. He also plans to start a small call center so that he can expand his business even more.


This is his sixth loan with MFP. Julio promises to submit his payments on time because he does not want to look bad in the eyes of those who made this loan possible so that he could continue working and making progress. He plans to invest this loan in improvements to his Internet business. Julio will paint his establishment and furnish it in order to make his customers more comfortable.
