A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase tires for her van.


Mariluz's story

Mariluz is a 38-year-old loving mother who lives in her own house with her two daughters, 18-year-old Teresa and 15-year-old Roció, for whom she wants to give the best educational opportunities. Mariluz is the owner of a van she uses for her work with an urban transportation company. She is responsible for charging passengers for this transportation and always makes sure she is vigilant that nothing happens to her car, since she’s put all of her savings into its purchase. She has been doing this work for the past four years and what she likes most is joking with the passengers so that the longer routes are more pleasant. What she likes the least is that she has to wake up early to leave and pick up passengers, but despite this, her efforts to continue reaching for her dreams and achieving her goals have not declined. In the near future she hopes to purchase another van to also use for transportation. This is the third loan that Mariluz requests with MFP and is very happy to receive the opportunity to get credit and knows that she needs to invest the money in her business in order to be more productive. The 3000 soles she requests will go to the purchase of new tires for her van since time has caused them to wear out.
