A loan of $350 helped maintenance of his motorcar.


Moacyr's story

Moacyr is 35 years old, married, and has 2 children for whom he works arduously in order to provide them with a better quality of life. Since he was very young he learned to work on various activities, because his family did not have the economic resources to provide him with a superior education. Nevertheless, he learned to drive and this was the manner in which he earned money and covered his expenses. He doesn't dislike working, on the contrary, he enjoys his work and because of this he is able to provide his services with good humor.

Thanks to his efforts he succeeded in saving and acquiring his own motorcar (light 3-wheeled vehicle), with which he is able to transport passengers. He has been doing this activity formally for 8 years. He rises early, considering that the majority of demand is for the mornings when people are leaving for work or school. The 29 loans that Moacyr has had from Microfinanzas PRISMA are reflected in the work and care that he demonstrates as a member of a communal bank where work forms the basis of responsibility. The 1000 soles that he now requests will permit him to repair his motorcar, which requires general maintenance to avoid losses over time.
