Edson's story

Edson, 46 is a hardworking man, helpful and kind with lots of wishes to get ahead. He is married to Miguelina who is employed, they have a 17-year-old daughter that he loves very much and lives with them at their house. Edson's activity is transportation services in a motorbike that he owns and bought with savings and a private loan, this is his main working tool and the one that supports his family.

He started this business 15 years ago, when he bought his first bike, as time went by he fixed other units as they deteriorated due to daily use. He considers having a profitable business due to the demand for services and the good earnings he makes.
He likes his business because it allows him to have income to cover his family expenses, he started the business out of necessity because he couldn't find a job, now he feels more security because he can plan his own time and be his own boss. On the other hand, he doesn't like having to fix his motorbike because it generates a lot of expenses, in spite of them he has good results, that's why he has plans to grow and buy a truck to transport heavy cargo. This is his second loan with MFP and he is thankful for the financial support that he has received to achieve his goals. He also indicates feeling happy with the community bank because he gets along with the members and considers them good people. The loan requested is 1000 new soles that will be invested in tires and motorbike accessories, looking this way to keep operating and generating income.
