Liliana's story

Liliana, who is 25 years old, is hard-working and active. She lives in her own house together with her partner Jimi, who is 27, and their two beautiful children, Jim, who is 6 years old, and Kalef, who is 1, and to whom she wants to offer a better quality of life. Liliana is a determined woman and, along with her partner, works in the sale of spare parts for cars. They began this business six years ago, and they comment that it is going very well since, up to now, thanks to their good service and the best brands of parts that they sell, they have succeeded in obtaining a sufficient clientele. She sells the parts while her partner repairs some of the failures of the cars. The drivers don't doubt their work, because it brings them good results on the road. This work is profitable because every day they manage to sell a part, but it also has its difficulties, when they run out of the parts most needed by the drivers. In the future they want to increase their mechanical work with tools of all types and of the best brands, which they already offer up to now. This will be her second loan with MFP, and she promises to be punctual in making her payments. In her communal bank, she is a very active and responsible member. With the 3000 PEN, she will buy more spare parts, such as brackets and clamps, among other items, and in this way they won't be lacking anything in the workshop.
