Ida's story

Ida is 47 years old. She lives with her husband and 5 children who she cares for in her own home, located in Azapampa.

For 17 years she’s provided transportation services. Her husband is a driver who is registered in a fleet of taxis in their community. She works every day. She drives the many streets of his city from the early hours of the day until dusk. But like everyone else, she is given a place to eat. She has chosen this business because it is profitable and there is a great need for this service in her area. Since she has chosen to provide this service with high standards, she keeps her car in good condition. For that reason she often does upkeep, makes repairs, and buys spares parts. Right now she own the car and also 2 omnibuses which are currently driver by two of her children on local routes.

Ida belongs to the group “Los Héroes Al Progreso” (Heroes in Progress), and this is the ninth loan with MFP where she feels satisfied. For that reason she promises to once again be punctual in her loan payments. Upon receiving help, Ida will invest the requested many into the funding of maintenance for her car in order to work with peace of mind.
