Edgar's story

49-year-old Edgar is married to Ada who is 34. The couple have four children and live in their own home, in Llochegua district. Edgar has been a hard worker since he was very young. He is highly regarded by of all his customers thanks to the way he treats them. Edgar's business is selling drinks and traditional dishes in a 'recreational bar' that he owns in Llochegua district.

Edgar has never lacked anything in his business. It is always suitable for everybody because he has a swimming pool for children and adults, funfair rides and the most delicious dishes, prepared from regional produce, which enhances his business. His busiest days are weekends and so he must ensure he has staff and a large amount of food to prepare. Edgar is happy with his business because it makes him a good income. In the future, he is planning to improve his 'recreational bar' even more.

This is Edgar's second loan from MFP and he pledges to make his repayments on time. He will invest his 2,500 soles in improving his business infrastructure.
