A loan of $550 helped to pay for mechanical maintenance on his car.

Oscar's story

Oscar, age 38, is the head of the family. He lives with his wife and their minor son in the family home. He has been providing transportation service for five years. He has a car, which is the essential work tool that allows him to support his family.

He works every day, and he has different schedules. He works from the early morning until night time, according to his customers’ demand. The carefulness with which he drives makes him avoid the accidents that are a risk for his work. He considers this business activity to be very profitable in its earnings.

This encourages him to plan big for the future. He wishes to have more vehicles, and to form his own transportation business with them.

This is his fourth loan that he has had working with MFP. He considers working with the loan a suitable and quicker way to improve the business that one has. His own experience has allowed him to learn about the importance of the financial aspect and how to manage it.

This time he will use the loan to pay for mechanical maintenance on his car.
