Cirilo's story

44-year-old Cirilo is a hard-working man who lives in his own home and works hard so that he can enjoy a good future. Cirilo makes furniture in his carpentry workshop which is located in the town of Santa Rosa. He has spent the last 25 years making all kinds of furniture such as beds, tables, chairs, wardrobes, etc. The people in his town know him for the good work that he does. What he most enjoys about his work is being able to make his products with a lot of dedication as he learned the carpentry trade when he was very young. He considers the most difficult part of his work to be when he runs out of wood and then becomes a little late in delivering his products. For this reason, he is requesting a loan from MFP, so that he can continue working, buying wood with which to make furniture.

This will be Cirilo's eighth loan from MFP and he is prepared to continue making his repayments on time. He will use his 3,000 soles to buy wood so that he can carry out his work, making furniture such as beds, tables, chairs, etc.
