A loan of $1,175 helped with car maintenance.


Jorge's story

Jorge is 35 years old, married, and has a young child. He lives with his wife and child in a small house built of adobe. Jorge makes a living as a taxi driver. Initially, however, he worked in various temporary jobs as he couldn't find stable work. He later decided to work in transport, starting out as a driver for different businesses until he managed to buy his first car and make a living transporting people to various locations.

He believes that his job provides good opportunities to make money and support his family, and he also has many friends in this business. To begin with, he found it very hard to cope with long working hours but over time, he managed to make it fun, forming solid friendships with his passengers and finally enjoying his job.

This is his first loan with MFP, and he has shown his gratitude by promising to be a customer who makes his loan repayments on time. On this occasion, Jorge wants 3,000 soles for technical maintenance for his car, because it has engine problems.
