Walter's story

Walter, 25 years old, is a young entrepreneur. He is honest and very hardworking. He is single and has no children because he hopes to be financially stable to start his own family. He lives in his grandmother's house along with his parents and siblings. He credits them with all of his effort and desire to improve himself so that they will be proud of him.

Walter works as a mototaxi driver. He transports passengers to their destination quickly and safely with a smile and nice conversation. All of the people who use his taxi service end up happy and thankful for the kind treatment he offers and the fair price he charges, without inflated rates. He has done this work for a little more than one year. He works alone and every day refreshes his energy for his work with optimism and always giving his best so that at the end of the day he can see the fruit of his efforts reflected in his good profits. He balances this work with his greatest passion, music. He is part of an orchestra and plays with them on the weekends and whenever they have an event.

For now, he likes performing both jobs, although he said at the beginning it was difficult to work as a mototaxi driver because he had to face negative comments from people and he didn't know the city completely. Now he does his work very well and his income has increased. One day he hopes to purchase a new mototaxi and also start his own orchestra to continue to achieve his goals.

This is his second loan with MFP and he is thankful to the people who make this loan possible so that he can continue with his goals. He promises to make his payments on time. He is very happy to be a part of his community bank since all of the members are good, kind, and supportive people.

He will use this loan to purchase spare parts and accessories that he needs to repair his mototaxi to continue with his work.
