Fredy's story

Fredy is 21 years old and is from the city of Juliaca. Since he is still single, he lives with relatives. He earns a living by delivering gas (for kitchens) to people’s homes. He crosses the city of Juliaca on his motorcycle, looking for better opportunities. He has done this for the past 3 years in order to support himself. When he finished high school he didn’t have very many opportunities to continue with higher education so he is very dedicated to his work because he knows that thanks to his job, he is getting ahead. He is also looking to study a technical field that won’t take too much time. The most difficult and dangerous part of his job is speeding through the streets of Juliaca on his motorcycle in order to arrive on time at his clients’ houses. This is his 4th loan with Microfinanzas Prisma. Realizing that this is an important responsibility, he is always on time with his payments. Luckily for Fredy , business is good and his earnings are good, but he hopes for something even better. To improve his business, Fredy will use this loan to buy more gas tanks to distribute.
