Jhonatan
Jhonatan is 23 years old, and he is a hardworking and persevering young man with a great desire to progress in life. He is single and he lives in his parents’ house with them and his five brothers whom he loves very much, and he works very hard to be the pride of his family.

He offers public transportation services, driving his motorcycle every day along the streets of his town, looking for customers. He has been engaged in this activity for 4 years and things are going very well. Thanks to his job he has succeeded in saving enough money to start another activity about one year ago: he sells sodas at wholesale prices and by the unit. He has a freezer in the house of his parents where he freezes the sodas he then sells to the liking of his customers. He needs his vehicle to carry out this activity as well, in order to transport soda crates up to his customers’’ houses; as a consequence, some parts of his vehicle are not in optimal conditions and needs to be substituted. His earnings allow him to help his parents paying for their household expenses, on top of granting him financial freedom. He wants to become a successful entrepreneur, but considering the good results he is obtaining as a moto-taxi driver he now plants on owing a fleet of motorcycle taxis.

This is the third loan he is requesting to MFP and he feels deeply grateful for the economic support he is receiving as this will help him progress with his activity. He also says he likes his Communal Bank because he thinks its members are kind and caring people.

A portion of the 1500 PEN he has requested will be invested in the purchase of accessories and spare parts he needs to repair his motorcycle. He will use another portion of the loan to buy more soda crates.

Jhonatan tiene 23 años, es un joven con muchos deseos de salir adelante, trabajador y empeñoso. Es soltero, vive en la casa de sus padres en compañía de sus cinco hermanos, a quienes quiere mucho y se esfuerza por ser el orgullo de su familia.

Se dedica al transporte público. Todos los días conduce su motocarro por las principales calles de la ciudad en busca de pasajeros. Trabaja en este oficio desde hace 4 años y le va muy bien; gracias a su trabajo ha podido juntar un capital y establecer desde hace un año otro negocio, que es la venta de gaseosas al por mayor y por unidad. En la casa de sus padres tiene una congeladora para enfriar sus bebidas y venderlas al gusto de sus clientes. Para esta actividad también requiere del uso de su motocarro para el transporte de las cajas de gaseosa hasta el domicilio de sus clientes y es por eso que algunas piezas de su vehículo no están funcionando en óptimas condiciones y requieren ser cambiadas. Los ingresos económicos que tiene le permiten apoyar a sus padres con los gastos del hogar además de darle libertad financiera. Su deseo es convertirse en un próspero empresario, pero por el momento está viendo los buenos resultados que está teniendo como mototaxista y desea tener una flota de motocarros.

Este es su tercer préstamo con MFP, por lo que se siente agradecido con el apoyo financiero que está recibiendo, ya que esto le servirá para avanzar con su trabajo. Además, afirma sentirse a gusto con su banco comunal, pues considera que sus integrantes son personas amables y solidarias.
El monto solicitado, de 1500 nuevos soles, lo invertirá en la compra de los accesorios y repuestos que necesita para reparar su motocarro. Otra parte del dinero lo usará para comprar más cajas de gaseosas.
