Jesus's story

Jesús, 35, is a happy and hardworking man. He lives in his own house with his wife Faustina, 52, and daughter, Andrea, 10, for whom they wish good well-being. Jesús is a focused man with many responsibilities to take care of for the good of his family environment. This is why he wakes up very early to get to work and open the doors of his business to wait for his first customers.

He has been working for 20 years selling household necessity products such as bags of rice, sugar, noodles, detergent, soda, and others. He feels very happy in his job because thanks to his store he built his own house and also pays for his beloved daughter's educational expenses. His store is located in his community and is very crowded with his neighbors.

With the support of the requested loan he will buy grocery products for his store so he will not look bad to his customers. This will be his first loan with MFP and he is happy about them offering the help he needed to continue with his work plans.

With the 1,500 PEN he will buy grocery items for his store: rice, sugar, noodles, detergent, and soda, among others.
