Rodolfo's story

Rodolfo, 31, is a man who works very hard in his job. He lives with his partner with whom he has an eight-year-old son in the house of his mother.

Rodolfo's job consists of transporting passengers and cargo in and outside the city. He begins working very early, since he has hired three drivers who each drive a motorcycle taxi. Rodolfo owns four motorcycle taxis and he drives one of them. He has been doing this work for 10 years.

He also works selling food, since in his house he has a patio to carry out this business. He enjoys his work a lot, and thanks to it he has fixed earnings daily.

Later he will begin to sell food at night so he will have greater income for his household. This will be his sixth loan with the MFP institution. He wants so much to continue working a lot to be able to make his payments on time. He is very grateful for the loans he has also received that he used to invest in his business.

With the loan he is requesting he will buy planks, strips of wood, and other materials to finish his patio. In this way he will begin to sell at night as well. He also will invest in buying ingredients and supplies for preparing food.
