Ober's story

Ober is 33 and lives with his wife and daughter in his own house, situated in the district of San Pedro de Saño. He has offered his construction services to various property owners who hire him for seven years. His specialty is building houses with brick and cement. The wide range of his experience in construction - he used to work as a bricklayer - has given him prestige that guarantees his clients' business.

He contracts the labor of bricklayers who help him with the construction, and he is one of those who is always making sure that all of the construction is conducted in order. This work has allowed him to quickly capitalize his income and to improve his quality of life. That is why he will continue working in this field with an aim to grow in quality of service and in the acquisition of new clients.

He is part of the solidarity group "cantuta" and this is the twelfth loan with MFP. He is grateful for the support he receives, since it allows him to progress with his business. He also promises to be punctual with his payment installations; his association is made up of responsible and supportive people. Upon receiving his support, Ober will invest the requested funds in the purchase of tools and construction materials.
