Zaida's story

Zaida, 56 years old, is a friendly, good and enterprising woman. She is married to Cesar, who is 57 years old, and they have five adult children. Only their last child, named Kaori, is still a minor. She is 16 years old.

For a long time, Zaida worked tirelessly together with her partner to provide a good education for their children. Currently she lives with her husband, two of her children, her daughter-in-law and her granddaughter in her own home. Zaida’s business consists of providing engine adjustments, tune ups, gear assembly, motorcycle and motorcycle taxi repairs and other services. In order to do this work she has her own workshop located in her home where she works with her husband and son. Her job is clearly administrative and customer service. She also sells spare parts and accessories on a daily basis. She has been in the business for more than 10 years and it is going very well.

She also rents out two motorcycle taxis, which generate a fixed daily income. She enjoys her work since it does not demand much effort. In addition, she is always in her own home where she can carry out her household duties. Now she plans to continue working in order to expand her business and improve her earnings.

This is her sixth loan from MFP. Consequently she is grateful to all the people who make her funding possible so that she can concretize her plans. As well she likes being part of her communal bank because all the members are responsible and very supportive people.

With the S/. 4,000 requested, she will buy tools to equip her workshop and also stock up on inventory with the purchase of spare parts, such as motorcycle taxi chains, bicycle sprockets, cables, central axles, tires and inner tubes.
