Julian's story

Julián is 32 years old, and is married with four children. He lives in Quimbiri, in the Peruvian jungle, where he has his own house.

Previously, Julián was working in agriculture, but now he works in the transportation sector, transporting passengers in his mototaxi. His workday begins at 6AM and ends at 10 PM. He enjoys this work, as he has the opportunity to chat with his clients and also earn good money. In the future, Julián would like to renew his agricultural work without giving up the mototaxi. In this way, he would have two parallel income streams.

This is Julián’s fifth loan with MFP, where he commits to making his monthly payments. Also, he makes an effort to help with the good organization of his communal bank, and he is happy to be a part of it.

With this loan, Julián will buy land for the cultivation of coffee. He will also spend some money on maintenance of his mototaxi, so as to provide more security and confidence for his customers.
