A loan of $400 helped to hire the service of a mechanic to refurbish his car.

Roy's story

Roy is thirty-five years old and a very sociable, happy, and hard-working man. He is single but has one daughter who's eight years whom he cares for and visits periodically.

His work is transporting passengers. He works inside the city and its outskirts. He spends his days driving his taxi and it doesn't matter whether it's daytime or nighttime- he works with energy and always carries a smile to give to his occasional passengers. Due to having these qualities he is always requested to fulfill this function. He's been doing this work for four years and owns his own car. He was able to buy it from a friend who was going to throw it away. He knows the city's streets very well and always provides fast service. At the beginning things were complicated for him since it was difficult to have to drive for so many hours and he was not getting used to the routine. But, when he began to see this job as profitable, he had to adapt to the working rhythm and fortunately managed to do so. In the future he would like to buy another taxi and rent it out in order to improve his earnings.

This is his first loan with MFP. Therefore he is grateful for the opportunity and trust that they are putting in him to receive this loan. On the other hand, he has committed to fulfilling his payments responsibly and punctually. Moreover, it pleases him to be part of the communal bank to which he belongs as he has seen that its members are supportive and very punctual people.

With the requested sum (S/. 1000) he will hire the service of a good mechanic to refurbish his car and leave it in optimal condition.
