A loan of $575 helped to purchase furniture for his recreational bar.

Marcial's story

Marcial is 39 years old, single, and has his own house in the district of Pichari. Marcial says that when he was a boy he lost his parents, which caused him to work in the streets putting him in the face of possible danger. As the eldest child, he had to take care of the two younger siblings, one of which was hardly 5 years old and required a lot of care. It was in this way that Marcial sacrificed his life being a child, forgetting playing games with his friends and becoming a man at an early age.

Now he has a recreational bar where he works all the time, and his two siblings have become professionals, and now they watch over Marcial because he was a father and mother to them.

Marcial is happy with his business, has a good financial income, and the only drawback is that sometimes he has to take care of business late into the night. This is his first loan with MFP and he promises to make his payments on time. With a loan of 1500 nuevos soles ($575.00) he will furnish his business.
