A loan of $200 helped to purchase spare parts for her van.

Marilly's story

Marilly is 23 years old, and lives with her husband and 2 children in her mother-in-law’s home. Accompanied by her husband, Marilly works in transportation services using a van (combi) that serves as their principal work instrument. They work all day with her husband driving the van while Marilly keeps track of the time during each trip; Marilly also makes sure to set aside time to attend to her 2 small daughters. The route that they cover with their transportation service serves two districts, a distance of approximately 20 kilometers. Marilly and her husband have great hopes of expanding their business, and one of their future wishes is to acquire another van. This is their first loan with MFP, and she has committed herself to being an active member of her communal bank. The money that she has solicited will be invested in the purchase of spare parts for the maintenance of their vehicle so that they face fewer problems that can interrupt their work when unexpected issues arise.
