Marco
Marco, 42, is a good, kind, enterprising man who is separated from the mother of his 14-year-old son who does not live with him. He lives in his parents’ house and he supports them economically. Marco’s work consists in providing transportation which he does in his three-wheeled vehicle known as a mototaxi. He does this work seeking passengers along streets and avenues to take them to their destinations in the city. He started this activity because he noticed that demand for transportation is high. At the onset, his work was complicated because he did not know all the city’s zones. He’s been doing this work for more than six years now so he’s now become well-known for the good service he provides. He considers his business to be profitable because of the good profits it yields and because people need transportation to their places of work every day.

He likes his work very much because it makes it possible for him to earn income in addition to the opportunity of getting to know many people and to interact with them. Also, he can set his own schedule and work independently.

Before starting this work, he had many economic problems so he now has many future plans but for now all he wants is to continue working to save up enough money to buy another mototaxi.

This is MFP loan #4 and he’s very happy to know that he’ll have economic back-up by means of this loan he’s being granted because he’ll be able to make some of his business plans reality. On the other hand, he commits to be a responsible member and to make his installment payments punctually because he wants to quickly enter into the spirit of his communal bank which he has good references of for being very supportive and punctual.

He will use the requested 1,000 soles to buy spare parts like tires, inner tubes, wheels, etc. to repair his mototaxi and service it so that it will be in good operating condition because he feels that if it’s operating well he’ll earn higher income.

Marco, de 42 años es un hombre bueno, amable y emprendedor. Es separado de la madre de su hijo de 14años el cual no viven con él. Vive alojado en la casa de sus padres a quienes apoya económicamente.
El trabajo de Marco consiste en el transporte, el cual lo realiza en su vehiculo trimovil llamado mototaxi. Esta actividad lo realiza buscando pasajeros por los jirones, avenidas; para llevar a sus destinos de la ciudad. Se inició en ésta actividad por que vio que hay mucha demanda en el medio de transporte, al comienzo era complicado su trabajo, porque no conocía todas las zonas de la ciudad. Viene realizando ésta actividad solo desde hace más de 06 años, tiempo que le sirvió para hacerse conocido por el buen servicio que brinda.
Considera rentable su negocio por las buenas ganancias que le deja y gente que cada día se transporta a su centro de labores.
Le gusta mucho su oficio ya que le permite tener buenos ingresos a parte de darle facilidad de conocer mucha gente e interactuar, además de manejar su propio horario de trabajo y es independiente. Antes de iniciar con ésta actividad tenía muchos problemas económicos. Por tanto, tiene muchos planes pero por mientras solo desea seguir trabajando hasta juntar el capital suficiente para poder comprar otro mototaxi. Este es el préstamo número 04 con MFP, esta muy contento de saber que tiene un respaldo económico a través del préstamo que le otorgan ya que así podrá concretar algunos planes que tiene para su negocio. Por otro lado se compromete a ser un socio cumplido y a pagar sus cuotas de manera puntual ya que quiere compenetrarse rápido a su banco comunal del cual tiene buenas referencias que son muy solidarios y puntuales.
Con el monto solicitado 1000 soles, comprará piezas y repuestos como llantas, cámaras, rodajes y otros, para arreglar su mototaxi y darle su mantenimiento así estará operativo y trabajando, considerando que si esta en buenas condiciones tendrá mas ingresos económicos.
