Ruben's story

Sixty-one-year-old Rubén is a hardworking man. He lives with his parents in his own home, located in the Huancayo area. He works ceaselessly to take care of his two children whom he loves deeply. Kenyu and Kensi, as they are called, are pursuing a higher education at a well-known university. He is very happy about that and continues to work transporting cargo to be able to pay for their education. His works consists of transporting food, devices, and materials all over the county, according to the needs of the customers he's serving. Along with this work, he manages a business for public bathrooms with hot water. This work is not full time, as he manages maintenance and the possible problems that arise. He receives a monthly salary from this that allows him to save a little. At the moment he plans to buy a bigger truck with a capacity of two tons. This will allow him to have more customers and, by extension, make more money. This is his fifth loan with MFP, where he is very happy to know that he has financial support, as this makes him feel secure in moving forward with his work. He also promises to make his payments. Furthermore, he likes being part of the association because all of its members are responsible and supportive people. Upon receiving your help, Rubén will invest the requested money in the purchase of new tires for his truck, as it needs to pass technical inspection.
