A loan of $175 helped purchase tools for his workshop.

Dante's story

Dante is 25 years old and lives with his parents. He has been working as an electrician for five years, and set up a workshop in his own house to repair household appliances. He also does electrical installations in houses and institutions, and so occasionally must travel because his services are requested in institutions that are far from his town. He is in such demand because he does high-quality work, which helps Dante earn the income he wishes, and also gives him the satisfaction of working independently. Now he wants to refurbish his workshop and buy more tools that will boost the quality of his work. This is the first time he's requested a loan from MFP, and he is eager to work in solidarity with the other members of his communal bank. He is requesting this sum in order to purchase tools and supplies that he will use in his workshop, such as copper, pliers, screwdrivers of different sizes, etc.
