A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a new motorcycle in order to be able to get to work.

Alejandro's story

Alejandro, age 32, is an honest and hard-working man. He lives with his wife, Virginia, and their two children, Carlos and Luis. They are raising the children in the house he bought nine years ago.

Very early, at the sun’s first light, Abraham heads to a faraway town where he plows farmland with the tractor that he has. His work is very tiring because he does it all day long. He arrives home when it is dark. That is the reason he does not stay at home a lot.

“My husband is very hard-working. Our only income is from the service that he performs,” says Virginia. It is for this reason that he wants to be able to buy a motorcycle in order to get himself to work without losing hours and hours walking. This way he will have more time to spend with his family. This way he will arrive on time to the farmlands where he works

This is his fourth loan with MFP. He is grateful for the financial support he has received. It will help him improve his business and invigorate his sales. He will have working capital, and he pledges to be punctual with his payments. Alejandro will use the money to buy a new motorcycle in order to be able to get to work.
