A loan of $550 helped to buy 4 tires to replace the old ones on her car.


Juana's story

Juana is 58 years old, and she lives with her husband Aedo, aged 59, in a house that belongs to them. Her 3 children do not live with them, as they all have families of their own. On top of having provided and keep providing for her grown-up children with great dedication, this hard-working woman strives together with her husband to make ends meet; this is why a few years ago they decided to buy a car her husband works with as a taxi driver, and the activity is going very well. This is how they work: Aedo drives the car every day, while Juana administrates the incomes. They are now saving in order to buy another car that they will then rent out. There are many plans that this resourceful woman wants to accomplish, and she hopes to realize them thanks to her great effort and dedication. This is the second loan she is asking to MFP, and she is really satisfied with the work done by her group, being it composed of caring and responsible people. To improve her taxi and offer a better service, Juana plans to invest the loan she is requesting in the purchase of 4 new tires to replace the old ones on her car.
