Robert Edwin's story

Sr. Robert Edwin P. Pérez is 20 years old, single, and lives at the Keiko Sofía Fujimori Housing Association, D-11. His residential unit is well-built and made of solid materials. He lives with his father Sr. Robert P. Matta, who is 41 years old and separated from his wife. Robert Edwin has siblings, but they do not live with him. He helps contribute to the family expenses.

Robert Edwin works for the city as a security patrolman on an eight-hour rotating schedule. When he is not at this job, he drives his father’s motorcycle taxi for approximately a four-hour shift. His neighbors have provided him with excellent references. Robert Edwin is dedicated to his work and his supervisor has also provided a good recommendation.

He is requesting a loan so that he can pay to upgrade his driver’s license, which will enable him to operate any type of vehicle. As a result, he will be able to find better work in the transportation sector and quit his job as a patrolman. Part of the money will also be used for motorcycle taxi repairs. Robert Edwin has demonstrated that he is enterprising, responsible, and eager to succeed.
