A loan of $950 helped repair her moto-taxi and buy new seats.


Sonia's story

Sonia is 34 years old and lives with 28 year old Manuel. Together they have a son and live in the Sivia district. Sonia is a woman dedicated to multiple businesses. She sells cosmetics, also runs a cell phone store, and rents out a moto-taxi and manages the revenue. Her husband works for the city in the rental area. He helps her in her businesses, especially on holidays.

Sonia is happy about her businesses, but one inconvenience she must deal with is that the drivers don’t take care of her moto-taxi, so she must constantly have it serviced. This will be her second loan through MFP and she promises to make her payments on time. She will use the 2,500 PEN to repair the motor that is failing. She will also buy new seats for her motorcycle.
