Ricardina's story

Ricardina is 31 years old and lives with her husband and two children in a rented house. For the past ten years, she has been providing transportation services in her own minibus that holds up to twelve people. Her husband is the driver while she collects bus fare from the passengers. They travel along an established route every day because their vehicle is registered with a transportation company that operates along predetermined routes. Ricardina begins work in the early hours of the morning and continues well into the night. Her hard work has enabled her to significantly improve her finances and she has plans to continue moving forward by acquiring another vehicle and hiring a driver.

This is her first loan with MFP. Ricardina promises to be responsible with her payments and thanks everyone who made this loan possible because it will be very useful for making progress in her business. She plans to invest the money in repairs and maintenance of her vehicle. In addition, she will buy spare parts for her minibus so that it will be adequately maintained.
