Bacilio's story

Bacilio is 52 years old and lives with his wife and three children in his own home. He is an architect and has been making blueprints, one of his great passions, for 20 years. The drawings he makes are for buildings appoved by the local authorities. He is a very well-known professional in his area where people are familiar with the quality and skill that go into his work. He also sells beer and does some farming.

He is mainly supported by his children who help him with the logistics and details of his business. The architectural services provide a good income so he decided to acquire better tools. This is his fifth loan through MPF. He is grateful for the financial support and has always paid back the loans on time. He enjoys being part of the communal bank because of the committed, supportive members. He thanks all the lenders who are helping him expand his business.

He plans to use the loan to buy a printer for his blueprint workshop and also to buy sacks of fertilizer for his farming activity.
