Agueda's story

Agueda is a cheerful, 49-year-old woman who lives with her 12-year-old daughter, Mirtha, in her own house. From a very young age, Agueda has been very independent; she always wanted to be self-sufficient, and for this reason she has explored many different trades and occupations. For 15 years she has been in the taxi business, as she is very good at it. Business is going very well and Agueda likes her job, as it allows her to get around the city without any problems, but sometimes the traffic and the chaos in the streets can be very stressful. But Agueda is not only in the taxi business: she also sews various garments in her house. Agueda is very happy with her work and in the future would like to open a pharmacy or a book store, businesses that she could run from her home.

This is Agueda's tenth loan with MFP. She has worked with the institution for a long time and she has always been very punctual with her payments. With the money from this loan, she would buy a new sewing machine to earn more money.
