A loan of $1,100 helped to stock his business with fruits which have diuretic properties.

Rodolfo's story

Rodolfo is 44 years old. He is an honest and hard-working man who lives in his own home together with his wife, 45 year-old Blanca, and three of his four children. He works very hard to get his family ahead in life.

Rodolfo has been working in informal businesses since he was very young. Five years ago he rented a store next to a very busy market. Since then he has worked together with his wife in his business. Every couple of days they supply their business with fruit from the wholesale market at an affordable price. In this way they make good profits.

Rodolfo enjoys his business a lot. While his wife sells in the store, he travels the streets in his three-wheeled vehicle selling his fruit and, in this way, they make good profits which cover their children's education and well-being and the monthly rent for their business premises which is very expensive. This enterprising man works hard with the conviction that in the future he will buy his own stall in the market itself or nearby. For the moment, his priority is to stock his business with a range of fruits since they sell well in this summer season.

This is Rodolfo's first loan with MFP and he says that they trust him because he is very pleasant and responsible. He would like to be able to count on further loans. Rodolfo will use his loan to supply his business with a range of fruits with diuretic properties since they are very much in demand this season.
