A loan of $550 helped to buy an industrial sewing machine.

Bequer's story

Bequer, aged 20, is an independent young man. He lives in a rented house in the city of Lima (the country's capital), however every month he visits his mom in the community of San Pedro de Cajas

He has begun to develop towards his main goal, and is studying advertising graphic design in the city's capital. Four years ago, he began working in a textile factory, where he learned everything necessary about this line of work. Even at his young age, he has many plans and goals for his life. In the short time he was at the factory, he learned everything necessary about heavy machinery maintenance, which has helped him to learn a little more money as in his free time he offers this service to different factories in the capital.

He has now started the process of opening his own textile factory, as he has a sewing machine and will very soon be buying more machines to set up his small workshop. For now, he is making polo-shirts in every size and style.

"The road is long", he states with optimism. But he knows that with hard work and effort, he will achieve what he sets out to do.

He belongs to the "Telarmachay" communal bank, and this is his second loan with MFP. He is sure he will be able to achieve his objectives, and this is why he promises to be punctual in his repayments.

On receiving the support, Bequer will invest the requested money in purchasing an industrial sewing machine, which will reduce the time it takes him to make his polo-shirts.
