A loan of $725 helped to send his car to be serviced.

Humberto's story

42 year-old Humberto is a very kind and unassuming man who lives in his own home together with his wife, 25 year-old Marilú, and his beloved 8 year-old daughter Darinka, who he would like to provide with a better quality of life.

Every day Humberto goes out in his car to find customers to transport. His day starts very early in the morning since the experience that comes with years of working in this business has shown him that the earlier he starts work, the more money he takes home to his family. He stays out working until late at night, only returning home to sleep.

What Humberto most enjoys about his work is chatting to his passengers and making their journey more pleasant. He has been in this business for eight years and he considers the most difficult part of his work to be having to endure long nights in the city of Pucallpa. In the future, he hopes to be able to put together enough money to buy a new car so that he can improve his income.

This will be Humberto's eleventh loan from MFP and he hopes to receive the support of each and every one of you so that he can make progress in his business. He will use the 2,000 Peruvian soles he has requested to send his car to a mechanic to have it serviced.
