Moises's story

Moisés is 43 years old and is a responsible mam. He has lived in the company of his wife of Natalia for 20 years. They have two young children together, Abel and Angelis. They raise their children in a rental home. He worked in construction since he was very young and his mason skills helped him get the money that he needed and to cover his daily household expenses. However, he suffered from an accident recently and although he has rehabilitated, he left this trade until he has fully recovered.

As a result of the accident, he began to sell candy in the neighborhood school where he receives enough money to survive. He also watches over the local school's storage area at night, where he receives a monthly salary. He knows that he will get better very soon and be able to take up his work again which he enjoys and had allowed him to receive a good income for his home. At the same time, his wife makes a living in a photocopy store and
recently they bought the store. They work together as a winning team. For this reason he awaits support to excel.

He belongs to the solidarity group "Las Mujeres del Éxito" and this is his second loan with MFP. He is thanksful for the support that is brought to him because he has already acquired the working capital needed to continue the business. He promises to be punctual with his loan installments. Moisés will invest the money to buy paper in sets of a thousan and ink for the copy machine.
