Leodila
Leodila is 47, and is a good woman: friendly and very hard-working. Her partner Riter is 42, and they have been together for 27 years. They have two children, ages 16 and 20. She was able to buy her own house three years ago, buying it with the money she and her partner saved up over years, as previously they lived in a rented house.

Her business is river transportation, carrying people or merchandise to the populated centers located on the banks of the rivers. She contracts with the merchants who will ship their products to those places, and in the case of transporting people, she only has to post a notice about her schedule and route.

She has been working for eight years in this business and it is going well. Over all this time, she has been able to obtain three large boats, and wishes to have a fleet of ten.

She carries on her work with the help of her partner and her children. Together they make journeys throughout the rivers in their region.

In addition she carries some foodstuffs, clothing and alcoholic beverages that she sells in each town where they disembark their passengers. During the time she has been in this business, she has learned to know the needs of the villagers in the areas she visits, and that has helped her to determine quantities, as well as the frequency with which she must undertake her trips.

This is her second loan with MFP and she is very happy to know that she has a loan, as this way she will feel more certain of going forward with her work. As well, she promises, once again, to make her installment payments on time, as she did previously.

In addition, she is very happy to belong to her communal bank, as all its members are very responsible and supportive.

With the amount of 1,500 soles applied for, she will buy a greater quantity of merchandise, consisting of clothing articles, alcoholic beverages and supplies in general, in order to continue selling.
