Robert
Robert, age 42, lives at his mother’s house with her and his two grown daughters who are working and studying. Together they strive each day to get ahead. At a young age, this enterprising man learned to play various musical instruments such as the “zampoña” and the “charango” (Peruvian instruments). Due to the lack of employment, he decided to look for a job so that he could help meet his mother’s needs. Now he performs music on public transportation vehicles that travel throughout the city. Robert also sells candy after he performs his musical repertoire in order to earn more income. He enjoys his work because it is entertaining and it allows him pass through the day. However, he does not like the vehicle drivers who refuse to let him board because they consider his music to be a waste of time, yet he continues to press forward since he always desires to make progress. Robert is always thinking about the future and plans to open a juice bar at his house so that he can earn more income.


This is his fourth loan with MFP. He promises to submit his payments on time because he does not want to look bad to those who made this loan possible so that he can succeed with his businesses. Robert plans to invest the loan he requested in the purchase of equipment (a blender, a juicer, utensils, glasses, and plates) that he needs to open his juice bar.

Robert, de 42 años, vive en la casa de su madre en compañía de ella y de sus dos hijas mayores, que trabajan y estudian. Juntos se esfuerzan cada día para salir adelante. Desde muy joven este emprendedor hombre aprendió a tocar diversos instrumentos musicales como la zampoña y el charango (instrumentos peruanos). Por la falta de empleo decidió buscar un oficio antes las diversas necesidades que pasaba su madre; es así que en la actualidad comparte su música en los vehículos de transporte público de la ciudad. Además vende golosinas luego que acaba el repertorio musical, de esta manera obtiene mejores ganancias. Le gusta mucho su labor pues se entretiene bastante y pasea durante todo el día; sin embargo le disgusta que muchas veces los chóferes de los vehículos no paran para recogerlo pues lo consideran una perdida de tiempo; pero aún así continua con las ganas de siempre por progresar. Además como siempre piensa en el futuro ya tiene planeado instalar una juguería en su casa, de esta manera espera mejorar sus ganancias. Es el cuarto crédito que tiene con MFP y promete pagar sus cuotas puntualmente, pues no quiere quedar mal con las personas que hicieron posible este aporte que le permitirá salir adelante en sus negocios. Robert tiene planeado invertir el crédito solicitado en la compra de algunos implementos (licuadora, extractor, menaje, vasos y platos) que le hacen falta para instalar de una vez su juguería.
