Alexander's story

Alexander is a 35-year-old single male who lives with his grandparents and siblings. He is a baker in his family's business. For the past three years they have been creating various types of pastries and cakes that they distribute at their locale. Alexander has always enjoyed pastries and it has been an accomplishment to create them, since at first he did not enjoy working in the kitchen. As he gradually tried the delicious pastries that he was making, he began perfecting his work, which is how he became much sought after in the neighborhood. Now the orders have grown and, thanks to help from his siblings, he can fill the orders, although they sacrifice a lot of hours of sleep. This is his third loan with MFP and to date he has not had any problems with payments. With the requested money he will invest in machinery that will speed up work in the bakery.
