A loan of $550 helped to buy tools and spare parts.


Andres's story

Andrés is 34 years old and married to Marleny. The couple have two children and live together in their own home which is located in Llochegua district. Andrés is an electrician who has been earning a living for seven years. He thanks God for having given him this wisdom. He gets up very early in the morning so that he can visit his customers who need this service so badly. Andrés is happy with his business because he knows that it makes him a good income and, thanks to the business, he is able to provide for his much-loved family. He also has the support of his beloved wife. The only thing which bothers Andrés is that when he is fixing appliances he is always in contact with them and inhaling toxic substances which harm his health. This is Andrés' first loan from MFP and he pledges to make his repayments on time. He will use the 1,500 soles that he is requesting to buy more accessories and spare parts so that he is able to carry out his work.
