Mario Carlos's story

Mario Carlos García Peña is 40 years old. He lives with his aunt in his grandparents’ house in Pueblo Joven Sr. de Luren in Ica. He has a grown son who he helps with all of the necessities. He helps his son with his education because he is very responsible with his obligations, and he wants his son to improve everyday.

He has his own car, which he uses to work everyday. He also has a mototaxi (three wheeled motorized vehicle) which he puts to work. This has all been obtained thanks to his effort. He wants us to help him with a new loan to be able to fix one of his work tools, the mototaxi. He cannot put it to work continually due to maintenance issues. He wants to keep getting this second income that allows him to help his son.

He has good references from his neighbors. His dream is to later buy two more cars in order to keep growing as a small businessman.
