Dionicio's story

Dionicio, who is 63 years old, is a dignified and responsible man. He lives with his wife, Maria, who is 54, and their 5 adult children, in their own house. He has worked all his life as bricklayer, and he himself built their house, including a section with all the appropriate details for a spa. Since then, for more than 10 years, his son and his wife have worked at this business, and it has gone very well for them. Dionicio is very proud of this, and he is happy to offer all the comforts to his family, because he now sees the profitability of the family business. Because of this, he now proposes to air-condition an appropriate space to prepare juices and mates, to please their customers while they wait their turns. To do this, this enterprising man has proposed buying cement and tiles, so that he can pursue his work and in this way expand his business as he has planned. Later, with these additional earnings to help him, he wants to continue constructing the third floor of his house, so that he can rent it out. This is his 10th loan with MFP, and he promises to make all his payments on time, so that he can continue to have help in the future. With the loan that he is applying for, he will buy tiles and cement and renovate the mirrors in his spa.
