A loan of $700 helped to maintain his motocar.

Juan's story

Juan is a very hardworking man who is 57 years old. He lives in his own home along with his daughter, who is independent. For more than 7 years he has worked providing transportation services with his motocar (light, 3-wheeled passenger vehicle.) He managed to buy his own motocar, the only tool of his work, thanks to his own efforts. He gets up early in the morning and heads for his taxi stop, a place that he already established, because it lies in an area where there are large numbers of customers. Over time he has gained the confidence of his passengers. Juan likes his work, but he has to always maintain his motocar in good condition, since with constant use the vehicle will tend to have some problems. That is why he wants to buy himself an automobile, so that he could provide more comfort to his passengers. This is his 2nd loan with MFP, and he promises to be punctual with his payments as he was the last time. With the loan he requests, he will invest in maintaining his motocar, leaving it in optimal condition so that he can work without problems.
