Olimpio's story

Olimpio is 67 years old and lives with his wife and their two children in a house that they own. More than 30 years ago, Olimpio decided to convert one room of his house into a store. He took advantage of the location, which is close to a main street where there are plenty of people.

Since that time, he has operated the store every day with the help of his wife. Together, they try to fulfill the demands of their customers. To do this, they stock the store with basic products as well as those of higher quality, which are preferred by the customers.

The best sales of the year are during national holidays and the Christmas holidays. For this reason, Olimpio wishes to stock up on various products for the coming holidays. This is his 17th loan with MFP and he is very happy to know that he has this financial support.

Olimpio is grateful to be part of his communal bank because all the members are people he knows and they are responsible and cooperative. He is also grateful to all those who make this loan possible as it will be very useful in the progress of his business.

This loan will be used to purchase merchandise, particularly chocolates, milk, and fruitcakes, to take advantage of the approaching Christmas season.
