Littman's story

Littman is an exemplary person who is thirty years old, married to Cloefe, who is 26, and with whom he has a one-year-old daughter, Zumey. They live with his parents. Despite of his disability, he is always ready to fight for a better future and even more so now that he is married. He works in farming and also uses his car to drive people around. His wife has a grocery store. They use the income they get for their household expenses like buying merchandise they need to stock their store. What he likes most about his work is that people get used to seeing him as a normal guy and a worker. They used to feel sorry for him because of his disability.

“All work is profitable, if one works with perseverance, will, and dedication,” Littman says who has a million other ideas for earning more money. He is trying to buy another car to rent out at 20 soles a day. At the same time, he will raise guinea pigs because he has some space in his home and even has cages. In the same way, he will increase the products he has so he can sell more.

This is his third loan with MFP and he likes working with his communal group because the people in his group always support him when things get hard. He will buy essentials to stock his shop with the two thousand soles he’s taking out.
