Cristian
Cristian is 51 years old, and lives in his own home with his wife, Cruz (52), and their 3 children: Mayra (18), Melissa (17), and José (14). He has been driving cars since he was very young, and for this reason 8 years ago he began working in public transportation by providing taxi service. He likes this job because he can work a schedule that is convenient to him since he has his own car. He does not like traffic during rush hour. On the other hand, this job allows him to interact with people, which is something that greatly pleases him, and he does not get bored. It is also very profitable because the money he earns allows him to provide a better quality of life for his family. In the future, Cristian wants to start a hardware shop in his home in order to have a calmer business than driving the taxi.


This is the third loan he has had with MFP, and he does not want to let his other group members down, and so he promises to be punctual in his loan payments. Cristian plans to invest the requested money in car maintenance and also to begin to buy merchandise for his future hardware store, as he wants to start it as soon as possible. He is also planning to sell his car someday to use that money to better stock his future business.

Cristian, de 51 años, vive en su casa propia al lado de su esposa Cruz (52) y de sus 3 hijos; Mayra (18), Melissa (17) y José (14).
Desde muy joven aprendió a manejar autos, es por esta razón desde hace 8 años empezó a dedicarse a movilizar personas brindando el servicio de taxi. Le gusta esta actividad porque la puede realizar en el horario que él convenga, ya que su auto es propio, pero lo que no le agrada es tráfico durante las horas de mayor saturación vehicular. Por otro lado, este oficio le permite interactuar con las personas, lo cual le agrada mucho y no se aburre, además lo considera rentable porque obtiene buenas ganancias económicas que le permiten brindarle una buena calidad de vida a su familia.
Para el futuro, Cristian quiere instalar una ferretería en su casa y así tener un negocio más tranquilo a diferencia del taxi.

Este es el tercer préstamo que tiene con MFP y no quiere quedar mal con las integrantes de su grupo, es por esta razón que promete ser puntual en el pago de cada una de sus cuotas. Cristian tiene pensado invertir el dinero que solicita en darle mantenimiento a su auto y también empezar a comprar mercadería para su futura ferretería, ya que quiere implementarla lo antes posible. A su vez, piensa vender su auto más adelante para usar el dinero en abastecer mejor su futuro negocio.
