A loan of $175 helped to buy new tires.

Juan's story

Juan, 28 years old, is a happy and hard working man who lives with his sister and wishes most to stand out.

His work days start very early in the morning, when he leaves with his motocar to look for pasengers. He is very attentive with his customers and always is outstanding with them. He hopes to give them the best service so when they see him again, they will take his motocar. What he like most of is job is to drive in the streets of the city so they distract him a lot from doing it. He has been doing this acitivity for 8 years and considers the most dificult part of his job working late into the night. With time he hopes he can have enough money to buy a new motocar.

This is the fifth loan Juan has had from MFP and he feels responsible to pay it on time as he doesn't want to cause any trouble with the other communal bank members where he is well liked by the rest of his female associates. With the requested 500 nuevos soles, he will buy new tires for motocar as the ones now are actually worn out from the arduos job.
