Felix's story

Felix is 36 years old. He is a very hardworking and fun guy. He lives in his own house with is wife, Margarita (34) and his 5 dear children for whom he wants to provide a better life.

Felix's shop is the first to open in the town of Kimbiri. At 5 in the morning his business is ready to receive early bird buyers, who knowing the variety of goods he has in his store do not hesitate to buy, and they are assured that they will find things that they need.

What Felix likes most about his job is talking with customers and learning about things that happen in his neighborhood. He has been in this business for 10 years and believes that the hardest thing is to stay inside his shop all day, unable to do other activities.

It is worth mentioning that he has a car, which he rents for a taxi service. This gives him the opportunity for extra income and offers employment to others. Over time, he wants to have another business, which will improve his family finances.

This is Felix's third loan from MFP and he expects to pay on time, so that he will not have problems in his community bank, where he is very respected. With the money he is requesting, he will buy parts for his car and more groceries to stock his shop to provide better service to his customers.
