A loan of $550 helped to buy more CDs.

Edgar's story

Edgar is 33 years old and has a live-in partner, Eva who is 23 years old. They have one 4-year-old son named Erik. Together they live in their own house located in the Sivia district. Edgar has been in the business of selling video CDs since he was an adolescent. His parents were merchants and they taught him to make a living honestly.

In the beginning it was difficult for him to start in the business but little by little he adapted and saw the importance of making one's own money. Currently he has the support of his beloved wife and together they try to get ahead. He says, “The only thing you have to have is the initiative, persevere and be creative.”

This will be his first loan with MFP which is why he awaits the support of each of you to be able to continue with his CD business. He is committing to being punctual with his repayments. With the 1,500 nuevos soles he is requesting he will buy more CDs and other audio items.
