A loan of $400 helped to buy new windshields, mirrors and whatever else is necessary to repair his car.

Virgilio's story

Virgilio, 24, is a young single man living in his parents’ house; he helps support them with his daily work. He works providing transportation for passengers from community to community. He has a car he bought with his parents’ help. He started a year ago and what he likes best is chatting with his colleagues because they talk about ways to get ahead. Like all transportation providers his difficulty arises when his car breaks down or it isn’t serviced (washing and lubrication). For that, he needs the loan because thanks to it he’ll be able to stay in business and improve his car.

This is his 3rd MFP loan and he’s happy with this new opportunity and thanks those who make it possible. He’s a very active, punctual installment paying member of his communal bank. He will use these 1000 new soles to buy new windshields, mirrors and everything else needed by the mechanic to repair his car.
