Victor's story

Victor is 42 years old. He is a friendly and hardworking man, in addition to having a strong desire to succeed. He is living with Victoria who is a merchant and is the mother of their 2 children. He lives in his own house only with his partner and their 2 children for whom they want to provide a better quality of life.You will always find Victor's grocery store open very early on a daily basis. It is for that reason that multiple customers come here to look for an article or product of basic need because they know they will find it and that they will be attended to with his wide smile and good service. His business is located in an air conditioned space in his house, operating for 8 years. Doing this work, he has begun to see the satisfaction of some of the household needs. He considers his business sufficiently profitable by the good earnings thus far. He likes his business as he doesn't have to go out of the house much and can support his children with the school work. He appreciates very much the help that his youngest provides, who is always by their side to help him sometimes with attending to customers. Now he wants to continue working hard and be able to begin to expand and offer a greater variety in products to his customers. This is the 10th loan with MFP. He is very happy to know that he has financial support, because he will feel secure in advancing his business. He also promises again to comply with the payments in a punctual manner, as he doesn't want to look bad to his group, as everyone is every punctual. With the requested amount, 4000 soles, he will buy products and merchandise like rice, sugar, oil, sweets, soft drinks etc. in order to be able to offer a greater number and variety of products to his customers.
