John's story

John, 35, is the father of a beautiful, 11 year old girl, Katerin. His wife is Ruth, 35. They all live together in their own house that’s built of substantial materials. With much kindness and courtesy, John tends to his customers at his grocery store which is his main activity and one he’s been in for 12 years. He does this work alongside his wife who encourages him every day to move forward and obtain a good quality of life for the family. What he likes best about his work is being able to please his customers with the products he offers them. This activity is what John knows how to do best and this is why he turns to loans to be able to stock up on merchandise. This is his loan #13 with MFP and he assures that he will continue to be punctual with his installment payments. He also is grateful to his fellow communal bank members for being responsible and mutually supportive. He will use the 3500 new soles he’s asking for now to buy sacks of rice and sugar, soft-drinks, vegetables and other foodstuffs for his store.
