Guirmen
Guirmen is 38 years old, and lives with his wife and their two children, who are his inspiration to get ahead. For the past 5 years he has sold food in the evening on a street corner two blocks from his house. He makes typical local street food such as french fries with sausages, french fries with fried chicken and eggs, and grilled skewers of meat. His wife supports him in this business, waiting on the customers who come to his stall to try the delicious dishes. This is not the only activity he has, though - he also has a motorized three-wheel cart that he uses to transport passengers in the mornings, something that he has done for the past 10 years. What he likes about both businesses is that they keep him active, he is not under a lot of pressure, and the businesses are profitable, producing daily income that allows him to pay for his children's education. He has already had 4 loans with MFP, and what he enjoys about being in a community bank is that his fellow members are very responsible and hard-working. The money that he is requesting now will be used to buy tables and chairs, because the ones he has now are not enough for his growing number of customers. He will also buy parts that he needs to get his vehicle repaired.

Guirmen tiene 38 años, vive junto a su esposa y sus 2 hijos, quienes son su inspiración para salir adelante. Desde hace 5 años vende comida por las noches en una esquina a 2 cuadras de su casa, prepara platillos rápidos como salchipapas, salchipolllos, anticuchos y choncholines. Para este negocio cuenta con el apoyo de su esposa, quien es la encargada de atender a los clientes que acuden a su puesto para probar de estos ricos platillos al paso. Sin embargo, no es la única actividad a la que se dedica, ya que también tiene un motocarro con el que brinda servicio de transporte de pasajeros durante las mañanas, este oficio lo ejerce desde hace 10 años. Lo que le gusta de ambos negocios es que los mantienen activo, no trabaja presionado y le son muy rentables, ya que los ingresos son diarios y con ellos está solventando los estudios de sus hijos. Con MFP ya tiene 4 préstamos y lo que le gusta de ser parte de un banco comunal es que sus compañeros son muy responsables y trabajadores. El dinero que ahora solicita lo usará en la compra de mesas y sillas, porque las que tiene no abastecen a sus clientes que día a día siguen aumentando. También comprará repuestos para mandar a reparar su motocarro.
