A loan of $375 helped to buy bolts and hose clamps for cars.


Rudy's story

Twenty-two-year-old Rudy, a happy and hardworking young woman, lives in her own home with her partner, 30-year-old Cristian, and her six-year-old daughter, Ana. She cares for both of them and wants a better quality of life for them. Rudy is a stay-at-home mom who takes care of her family, works at a job that she was able to get 10 years ago with her partner's help, and makes a great effort to get ahead in life. Cristian, who works repairing cars, keeps his clientele happy with the good work he does. Rudy is in charge of selling spare car parts at reasonable prices. However, it's difficult for them to not be able to count on having the spare parts they need sometimes in emergencies for their customers. As soon as she found out about the loans MFP offers, she didn't hesitate to go and ask for one to be able to progress in her work. This will be her first loan with MFP and she is prepared to make her payments on time so that she will be able to take out another loan if she needs one. She is thankful for the opportunity to work in a group that her communal bank offers her. With the 1,000 nuevos soles, she will buy car parts such as bolts and hose clamps, among others.
