Martha's story

Martha is 35 years old and lives with her husband and daughter in a rented house. For the last 2 years she has been in transport services and her principal tool is a car which she has acquired. She offers service to different points in the city. Recently Martha has hired a driver to work all day, so that she and her husband can serve as teachers in an educational center. Each day the work earns them the money they need for their household economy. It also heps them to pay off what they still owe on the car. Martha feels very satisfied to have her taxi income because it permits her to cover many household expenses. In the future, she would like to acquire another car and to continue to work in the same manner. This is Martha's 1st loan with MFP. She is very content to know that she has financial help and appreciates being part of her communal group, because all the members are responsible people who offer solidarity. Martha is grateful to those who supported her loan, which will be very useful in the progress of her business. She will invest her loan in maintenance and replacement parts for her car.
