Roberto's story

Roberto, 69, is a kind and hardworking man. He is married to Emma, 63, with whom he has five children, whom he raised, educated, and always gave the best until the moment they were of age and independent. He lives with his wife in his own house where he works daily to be able to improve his living conditions.

Roberto's job consists of selling natural curative products. He works with an international company that supplies him with an innovative and good product that contains curative properties for all ages and all members of the family. Every day he goes out on the streets to offer his product. He has been doing this work for two years, which allows him to have peace and comfort.

Previously he had a job as a welder, but in time the brightness of the welding deteriorated his vision, resulting in him not being able to see anything at all at one point. As he always was a persevering and strong man, he did everything possible to be able to recover, and now he is much better. He has a new way to earn a living.

It is going well for him in his job. On the basis of a lot of effort he managed to get himself a good portfolio of customers, which allows him to have good sales and, thus, improve his income. He wants to be able to continue working and be able to increase his quantity of products, because every day the number of customers for his business grows.

This will be his third loan with MFP. He is very happy to know that he will have some financial help because in this way he will feel more secure about advancing with his business. On the other hand, he promises once again to make his payments punctually because he does not want to lose face with his group, as they are very punctual there.

With the requested sum of 1000 PEN he will buy more products and so be able to offer large amounts to his customers.
