Guillermo's story

Guillermo, 41, is a responsible man living with his wife, Karina, and their daughters who he cares for in a house he bought some years ago. During the first days of the week he works in his store; he does this thanks to his daughters’ being young women now who control the daily accounts. When he bought his house he decided to open a grocery store because there wasn’t one in the zone; he earns good income because he’s always careful to meet his customers’ needs and wants. “They enjoy buying in my store because they don’t have to go down into the city to do their shopping,” he affirms. Now, he wants to progress still more and improve the store because he also works in construction where he also earns good income.

This is his second MFP loan so he’s grateful for the economic support received that will help him improve his business and strengthen his sales because he’ll have working capital available; he promises to be punctual with his payments. Guillermo will use the money to buy sacks of rice and sugar as well as milk, noodles and other non-perishables.
