Jaimer's story

Jaimer is 40, and the father of two children, Soledad, 8, and Deysi, 5, that he looks after every day. He lives with his partner Ernestina, 31, and they have their own house. Jaimer's parents taught him to earn a living from a young age. He had a very difficult childhood, that he had to overcome through hard work and perseverance.

He became independent of his parents 21 years ago, and opened his own business, a grocery store. He began selling his products little by little, and with the passage of time, and his accumulated savings, he bought his own plot of land, where he is now established and selling to the people of the community.

Jaimer is a determined man, and says that one achieves one's aim through perseverance. Today he feels happy with the work he does, and the good income he gets. He has almost all the products that his customers need, and to this he adds thoughfulness and good customer service.

Jaimer needs the loan to continue prospering, and delivering good service to his customers. He needs to buy grocery products to add to his store, and knows that he will manage to do it thanks to the support of the lenders. This is his 13th loan with MFP, and he is very happy to know that he will get financial support, as that way he will feel sure of buying the suggested products.

He is very happy to belong to the communal bank. With the 3,000 nuevos soles, he will buy grocery products to add to his store.
