Guirmen Augusto
Guirmen, 40, is the father of two children. He lives in his own house with his minor children and his wife with whom he shares the children’s education.

Guirmen starts his work day very early. He sets off at 4:30am to seek out customers along the city streets that need to be transported from place to place. He’s been in this line of work for 20 years, time in which he’s learned quite a bit about the business.

What he likes about his work is that he can manage his own time since he knows at what times passengers are plentiful and when he can go home to do chores there. What he dislikes is that the sun is very strong and the state of the roads is such that his vehicle becomes damaged as do his kidneys. He hopes later on to be able to buy another vehicle to lease it out and earn extra income.

He has been with the institution six years. He says he likes to work with MFP because interest rates are low but, above all, because you can access a secure loan not just for yourself but for your family as well. He will use the requested 1000 soles to buy some replacement parts for his mototaxi to improve the appearance of his work tool.

Lleva 20 años en esta actividad, tiempo en el cual aprendió mucho del negocio.Lo que le gusta de su trabajo es que tiene disposición de su tiempo ya que sabe en que momentos hay mas afluencia de pasajeros y en que momento puede ir a su casa a hacer algunos quehaceres.
