A loan of $550 helped buy new tires for his three-wheeler taxi.


Leonidas's story

Leonidas is 36 years old he is a very humble and nice man. He lives in his own home with his wife, Sandra who is 30 years old, and their 2 loving children, Yina who is 7 and Julio who is 3 years old, to whom they want to give a better quality of life. He goes in search of customers who wish to board his three-wheeler taxi. Leonidas wakes up very early to do his job and stays late at night working as his main goal is to bring good money to his home since he knows that his family needs it and he needs to look out for their best interests. What Leonidas enjoys most about his work is talking to his passengers and making them have a good time. He has been working in this field for over 10 years and says the most difficult aspect of his job is leaving his family all day but knows that he has to do it in order to give them what they need. Leonidas hopes that with your help he will be able to buy a new three-wheeler and work with it to have better income. This is his third loan with MFP and has always been punctual with his payments since he doesn’t want to create any problems with his communal bank where he is an active and well liked member. With the fifteen hundred nuevos soles, Leonidas will buy new tires for his three-wheeler since the ones that he has are worn out.
