A loan of $525 helped repair his motocarro.

Abelardo's story

Abelardo is 41 years old, and lives with his wife Juana and their 3 children in their own house.

Since he was able to buy a motocarro (a 3-wheeled light truck), he has been providing passenger transport in his area, as it is a place where cars can't travel easily because there are no paved roads. This is hard work, since his truck suffers more than it should in this terrain. Fortunately, the demand for his services is good, since many people need to move, and motocarros are the preferred mode of transportation.

Abelardo is grateful for the good income he earns, so that he can support his family.

This is his first loan with MFP, and he promises to be very punctual and responsible with each of his payments. With the money he requested he will rebuild his motocarro, because it wears out quickly in this type of terrain.
