Limber
Limber is 27 years old. He lives with his partner who is the mother of his two small children. At this time they are living in his mother’s house. For a year he has had a small cart (it is a mobile cart where he can fry food as he moves from place to place). Every night he sells fried chicken and French fries or sausage and French fries from the cart in the suburbs near his house. In order to do this work, he depends on this wife to be in charge of the preparation of the food while he serves his customers. Also, in the mornings he transports people in his car. He has served as a driver since he was eighteen years old. Limber is happy with both of these businesses because they provide a good income that he uses to support his family. This is his second loan from MFP. One of the things he likes the most about the cooperative bank is that his colleagues are personally responsible and they are a cohesive group. The money that he is asking for will be used to buy tables, chairs and tablecloths that will be used by his diners. Also he will fix his car because it has been having some mechanical problems.

Limber tiene 27 años, vive con su pareja y madre de 2 pequeños hijos. Por el momento están viviendo en casa de su madre. Desde hace un año tiene un carrito salchipapero (móvil para preparar frituras al paso), con el que todas las noches trabaja vendiendo salchipollo (pollo frito con papas) y salchipapas (salchichas con papas fritas) en las afueras de su casa. Para esta actividad cuenta con el apoyo de su esposa, quien es la encargada de la preparación, mientras él atiende a los clientes. Adicionalmente, por las mañanas, se dedica al transporte de pasajeros en su motocarro y esta actividad la ejerce desde que tenía 18 años. Con ambos negocios, Limber se siente muy contento porque vienen produciendo buenas ganancias para el sostenimiento de su familia. Este es su 2do préstamo con MFP y una de las cosas que más le gusta de su banco comunal es que sus compañeros son personas responsables y solidarias. El dinero que solita será usado en la compra de mesas, sillas y cubiertos para el uso de sus comensales. También hará reparar su motocarro porque está presentando algunos problemas mecánicos.
