A loan of $1,100 helped to buy stock items for his store.

Eliu's story

Eliu, 51, is a very gracious, hard working man living in his own house with his wife, Nancy, 45, and their beloved youngest daughter, Lila, 17, for whom he wants to provide a better future.

Thanks to Eliu’s work the streets of the city of Pucallpa are safer. His work as a Watchman has made him very well-liked by the neighbors who are aware of the perils he’s exposed to during the night and of his courage in facing them. Although he does very well in this job the salary he earns isn’t sufficient to provide his family with a proper life. Because of this, he’s decided to open a grocery store that his wife will run and he hopes that this new income will improve things at home. He feels very happy at work because it’s gratifying to know that thanks to his work people can sleep peacefully. He’s been in this occupation for three years and considers the most difficult part having to spend all night being very watchful of everything that goes on in the city.

This is his fifth loan with MFP. He knows that he must make his payments on time and is willing to do so because he wants to access future loans. He will use the requested 3000 new soles to buy merchandise to stock his store because he wants to improve his stock inventory.
