Silver's story

Silver, 26, is a nice and entrepreneurial man. He lives with Julia. Together they have a daughter two years of age. He and his family live in his father-in-law's house. Silver's work consists of selling groceries, like rice, sugar, vegetable soups and canned foods. He buys these things on a daily basis in the wholesale market of his city. He has a saying: "Treat the customer well, give them what they need, have everything they are looking for, and they will always return." This is why he does not neglect having a little of everything in order to keep them satisfied. His business is located in a very crowded market in the city. He relies on the help of his partner, who is always at his side. He has been doing this job for three years. He likes his job a lot, because it lets him have time for some other activities to make extra earnings besides sustaining his home, which is essential. He has many plans for the future, but the main thing is to be able to make his business grow and therefore have greater earnings. This will be his second loan with MFP. He is very happy to know he will have financial support, since this way he will feel sure about advancing his business. Furthermore, he is again very committed to paying his installments, as with the previous loan he had. With the requested total of 2000 soles, he will buy goods for his business, such as batteries, flashlights, soaps, brushes, among other things in order always to have what he needs and increase his sells in the future
