Quenida's story

Quenida, 36, lives in her own house with her husband, Denis, 40, who is a taxi driver, and their three school age children. Together they struggle to get ahead daily.

For the last three years this hard working woman leases out two vehicles that she herself administers. She is very satisfied with the profits she earns which allow her to help her husband meet household expenses.

She states that it isn’t easy because she had to find trustworthy drivers and she always has to be aware of any mechanical problems the vehicles may have.

What she dislikes is that sometimes a driver working for her falls back on the daily payments he’s supposed to give her and this impedes capital circulation. Despite the problems, though, she knows that she will get ahead because her husband, who is a driver, gives her good advice that is useful to her advancement. She has a lot of plans for the future like buying more vehicles to have a taxi fleet.

This is her 7th loan with MFP and she promises to repay on time in order not to disappoint the people who maD. this contribution that will allow her to stay in business seeking progress.

Quenida plans to use the loan to service her vehicles because they are experiencing some mechanical problems and she wants to proviD. better service to passengers they pick up. She knows that her profits will improve this way.
