Nelson's story

Nelson is 18 years old and unmarried. He lives in the town of Puerto Amargura, LLochegua. Nelson had just finished high school when he enrolled in a short-term studies program at CETPRO technical college. There, he studied motorcycle mechanics. After completing his studies, he began working in his uncle’s garage. Since then, people have come to know him as a hard worker. From there, he set up his own garage and began to work independently and make profits. Now he has so much work that he doesn’t have enough time to repair his customers’ motorcycles. However, his only drawback is not having enough money to buy all the all the tools he needs. For this reason, Nelson is returning to MFP for a loan to purchase more tools and equipment for his garage. He is satisfied with what he has achieved so far, thanks to the support his parents have given him. This will be his second loan and once more, he promises to make his payments on time. With the 2,000 nuevos soles, he will purchase tools and equipment for his garage.
