A loan of $800 helped repair his motorcar.

Erickson's story

Erickson is 22 years old, single, and lives with his parents and two siblings. He has been transporting passengers in his motorcar for 2 years. He owns one of the vehicles and he himself drives it. He drives the motorcar almost all day. It is exhausting work, not only for the physical effort and suffocating heat of the jungle, but also because he needs to remain alert for the safe transportation of his passengers from one area to another. This mode of transportation is very common in this region of Peru and so he needs to battle every day with his competition, but as he does not yet have many family expenses, he can save for his future. Erickson is a very responsible young man, and he is appreciated in his communal bank and is seeking his 5th loan with MFP. With the money he is seeking this time he will repair his motorcar as well as invest in his father’s wood business.
