A loan of $1,150 helped to buy more plastic items in order to continue selling.

Tito's story

Tito, age 29, has lived with his life partner for many years. They have two small children, ages six and three. He lives with his family in the house he managed to build as a result of his constant work. His parents also live there.

He sells disposable paper and plastic products like napkins, spoons, and forks, etc. He has a stand that he rents in one of the main markets, which is the busiest in the city. He has been in this business for over 12 years, and he always works alone. He considers this business activity to be very profitable because of the ease with which his customers arrive at his stand. What he likes the most is that he is able to very comfortably generate income for his family without neglecting his children.

This is his second individual loan with MFP. He is grateful to all of the people who make his loan possible and trust in him. Also, he is very happy with the advisor that he has, and he hopes to continue working hand in hand with the institution.

He will use the requested 3,000 soles to buy more merchandise like packages of toilet paper, napkins, bags, and disposable plates.
