Milquicided Zenon
Milquicided is the father of two children aged 13 and 16. He tells us that he worked with his father in a carpenter's workshop from the age of 16. However, he decided to start working independently and so started working in the locksmith trade. An uncle taught him this business, in the city of Lima, and with a small amount of savings he bought a small cart where he cuts keys. He started working in Ica. Milquicided tells us that things went well and he started earning money. He then bought another cart and he currently rents out that cart to a cousin. He gradually started growing in the locksmith trade.

Milquicided is requesting a loan to modify his two carts. He will expand his safe draws and his counters, and paint both carts. With the money he has left over, he would like to buy two pieces of equipment: an electric welding machine and a screw welder. In common with other entrepreneurial men, Milquicided would like to increase his income and improve the quality of his work. He dreams of becoming the first locksmith in his district to cut all types of keys and locks using a computerized cutting machine.

Milquicided is very grateful for the support he is being given.
