Raul's story

Raúl is 56 years old. He is an honest, responsible, and very hard-working man. He has been married for 23 years. The fruit of this love is two children who are already grown. Now he lives with his wife in their own house, which he was able to obtain thanks to his arduous work.

He provides mechanic service and has his own shop that he installed in his house. There he waits daily on numerous customers who come in looking for a solution to some problem with their vehicles. He has been doing this work for more than 40 years, and currently he does it with the help of his son. What he likes about his work is that he can generate his own source of income. Previously his main problem was the lack of personnel, which did not allow him to do the work with the speed his customers demanded. This is why he asked for his son's help, and since then they have continued working together.

Raúl is grateful to MFP and everyone who has intervened so that this loan may become a reality, since he wants to continue working very responsibly and punctually.

With the loan requested, 3000 soles, he will buy the tools and spare parts he needs in order to continue doing his work.
