Con el esfuerzo que lo caracteriza ha logrado construir una casa de material noble para sus hijos y ya mayores lo acompañan y forman una gran familia unida. Desde muy joven llegó a esta parte de la selva con el objetivo de superarse y buscar una mejor vida, al no conseguir terrenos para cultivo se vio en la necesidad de involucrarse en el rubro del transporte rural, es así que lleva 15 años desempeñándose como tal y ha sido el mejor de los sustentos para sus hijos. No obstante, necesita disponer de tiempo en cualquier momento haciendo de su trabajo uno de los más abnegados y a la vez reconfortantes. Sin embargo en temporadas de lluvias, haces que las vías de acceso se complican más de lo normal.
Aunando el esfuerzo de muchos años tiene el deseo de ampliar una pequeña tienda de abarrotes cuyas encargadas sérían sus hijas, dentro del cual incluye la compra de víveres de primera necesidad así como la de conservas entre otros.
Desea en lo posterior realizar el cambio de su unidad por una de mayor capacidad para así continuar laborando como transportista. Viene siendo parte de MFP con 14 créditos, pues siempre ha mostrado la responsabilidad en el cumplimiento de sus pagos. Lo motiva pertenecer a su banco comunal ya que siempre fue una buena manera de trabajo con microcréditos.
Con los 1,000 nuevos soles realizará la compra de mercadería para implementar su tienda, como conservas y cereales.
