Richard's story

Richard is 23 years old and is a happy and hard-working young man. He lives in the house he was given by his parents. Richard is a man who likes to work and his activity is to give mobility to his passengers who go to different parts of his town. He is a young man who offers very good service. For example, when the farmers have their bags full of harvest he helps them to carry them in his car and he takes them to the trade centers. He has been doing this work for two years and for him it is the simplest thing he can do and he also likes helping his fellow farmers.

In time he wants to buy another car in order to continue working at what he enjoys. Richard says that thanks to the work that he does he can pay his own expenses since he is always going to different places.

His priority now is to fix his current car that he has been working with for the past two years and that has helped him have a good period. This will be his second credit with MFP, and he is happy to know that he can count on the financial help in order to realize his plans.

He is an active and upstanding member of his communal bank. With the 1,000 nuevos soles, he will buy the replacement parts necessary to improve his car, for example a ball and socket joint, windshield and mirrors.
