Weniger's story

Weniger is 36 years old and is a very active man. He likes very much to feel useful and works to support his family. His partner is Nolita who is 34 years old and with whom he has a son of 8 years who is called Fernando.

When a neighbour, acquaintance or customer wants to construct a building, wall or put in place electrical facilities, they do hesitate in calling Weniger. He has been working independently in this area for 4 years. Previously worked under the supervision of others and this is how he learnt. He needed to gain a lot of experience to be able to do what he is doing now very carefully and responsibly. It is going well for him, he has many contracts and always carries out his work with good results and with all the safety equiptment he needs, since he does not want to create or suffer accidents which he will later regret.

When he worked under the superivision of others he had very little income and was very dependent on what he was paid, but now he is financially independent.

This is his second loan with MFP and he is very happy for the financial support he is recieving and thanks everybody who has made his loan possible. He promises to be punctual again with his repayments, as he does not want to be seen as irresponsible within the group, of which he wants to be a member for much longer.

With the amount he is asking for, 1500 nuevos soles, he will buy tools (screwdrivers, pliers, an electrician’s knife, guides, a hammer and a welding gun) to continue with his work.
