Jaime's story

Jaime is 52 years old. He is a cheerful and enterprising man. He is married to Leily, with whom he shares his business. They have three grown children. They own the house they live in, whih he was able to build with his spouse' help.

His job is offering a chainsaw service. In he area he lives in people frequently ask for this service to cut down trees for construction, or to cut wood into pieces. His customers recognize that he always does his job with dedication and hard work, and this has helped him get recomendations. He has been doing this activity for 6 years and sometimes he does it with the help of two people who with him operate the heavy tools. What he likes about this activity is that this type of work is well paid because it is in demand and requires a lot of effort. This generates income which ensures support for his home. He is happy because his labor has brought much satisfaction and he wants to buy more tools to expand the service.

This is his third loan with MFP and he is grateful for the opportunity and trust put in him. He also is committed to making his payments on time. He also likes being a part of the communal bank he belongs to. He has seen that its members are responsible and supportive people.

With the amount he has asked for (S/. 2500) he will buy gallons of fuel for his tools and groceries to feed his workers during the workday.
