Mi Progreso Group's story

ANTONIA T. V. is 46, married, and has 5 adult children. She is a member of the "Mi Progreso" group. She and the other 9 members live in the area of Carabayllo. Señora Antonia has had a motorcycle rickshaw service for 8 months. Everything started when she acquired her vehicle so her youngest son could use it to work. When he had the opportunity to drive a taxi, she knew that keeping the motorcycle put away wouldn't generate any income. She decided to learn how to drive it. She started the process to earn her license, and this is how she started to work. She also offers school service at noon. With her income, she covers part of a car payment that she obtained on credit along with her husband to have the taxi service. The loan she is requesting will go towards the purchase of parts for her car and tires for the motorcycle rickshaw.
