A loan of $575 helped to buy a pick, shovel and pliers.


Alejandro's story

Alejandro is 53 years old and from the city of Quimbiri. He cohabits with Zoraida who is 31 years old. They live together in their own house with their small daughter Gema who is six years old. They provide her with a lot of care and dedication.

Alejandro is in the business of constructing houses. Thanks to his good work as a mason, his long-time customers recommend him to other people in order to offer his services to them. In this way he has gained clientele and an increased income. He has worked in this business for 18 years and it has gone well up to now. The thing he likes the most is doing a good job and having customers that leave satisfied. However, the most difficult part is not having sufficient tools work his work. Many of his are in bad condition and others he doesn't have. This is why with the help of a loan from MFP he will be able to buy construction tools such as a pick, shovel, and pliers.

This will be his first loan with MFP and he is happy with the support they provide him because he can keep working. With the 1,500 nuevos soles he will be able to buy his work tools such as a pick, shovel, and pliers.
