Isaías
Isaías is a 49-year old father of four children: 26-year-old Amparo, 22-year-old Jorge, 18-year-old Lisbeth, and 14-year-old Alberto. He is separated and his children live with his ex-wife. Isaías has driven a taxi for 25 years. He works from eight at night until eight in the morning in a rented car (a car he pays for from his earnings).

Isaías has started his life anew and has a new wife who is very supportive. This is why, in addition to working to support his children, he is also starting to think about his future with his new partner. Working at night is dangerous and Isaías suffered serious injuries in an attack one time. Happily, he recovered and continues to work toward his goals. He reports that he is not a coward and will take his passengers wherever they need to go, even if it is a dangerous area. He would like to buy his own car in the future so he doesn’t have to keep paying rent.

This is his first individual loan with MFP. Before this, he was a member of a communal bank and was always punctual with his payments. He will buy lubricants for the car with the loan money and also invest some in his wife’s restaurant so they can both get ahead.
