Wilquer's story

33-year-old Wilquer is a hard-working and determined man. He lives with Mirtha who is a saleswoman and the mother of his four children. They live comfortably together in their own home. Wilquer's business is selling fresh fish. Every day he gets up very early in the morning and heads for the town port where he buys different varieties of fresh fish to sell wholesale to the traders in the market. He has been in this business for more than six months. When he has finished this work he provides a transport service with his motorcycle taxi. He has been in this business for more than six years. Wilquer enjoys his business because it makes him income and he had previously spent some time looking for a job without success. He considers his business to be fairly profitable. It makes him good profits. For this reason, he has plans to expand his business and grow it by investing more capital in his fish sales.

This will be Wilquer's third loan from MFP and he hopes to receive your cooperation so that he can continue achieving his goals. He says that he likes working with his community bank because they are supporting people and helping them to make progress. Wilquer will invest the 1,500 soles he has requested in buying merchandise for his business. He will buy different varieties of fresh fish.
