Eda
Eda is a hardworking, 28 year old woman that does everything she can to get ahead. She has worked since she was very young, since she has always had the mentality of wanting to better her life and be independent. The sacrifices that she made as a child are now starting return results. She has been working for more than 10 years as ticket collector on combis (public transportation trucks) and for the past year she has been working with her own combi, which she bought with her savings and her parent's help. She works the #14 route, one of the most heavily trafficked in the city of Juliaca.

In the future Eda hopes to buy more cars and form her own transport company. What she likes most about her work is talking with the passengers and making the long trips more enjoyable for them. The most difficult part is having to spend the whole day standing, opening and closing the combi's door. Even so, she knows it's her job and thanks to it she has been able to improve her life. This is the second time that Eda is requesting a loan from MFP; her communal bank supports her and wants her to get ahead, since it's the members themselves that are most concerned about everyone succeeding. With the 1,000 Nuevos Soles requested, she will buy new tires for her combi in order to provide a better service to her clients.
