Lida's story

Lida, 40, is an honest, responsible and very hard working woman. She lives with Amador and together they have three children who are 11, 8 and 2 years old. She lives in her own house and shares her days with her partner, their children and her mother-in-law sharing daily their fight to get ahead. Lida's work consists of providing vulcanizing services. She has her own shop installed in her house where she offers different services like patching tires, repairing cars, lowering motors, fabric rings, centering rings, among others. She works with the help of her spouse and another assistant. Her main job centers on managing the service. For two years she's been attending to this business from 7AM until 10PM. Now, she is seeing the possibility to sell drinks like sodas and beers due to the demand of her customers who ask her for these products while they wait for the car service to be completed. What she likes about her job is the direct relationship that she has with her customers. It pleases her to see the final work and that it contributes to her customers' also working better. It also pleases her to share and develop this passion with her spouse and that motivates her to keep going. She hopes soon to start a shop to continue working with better results and also to begin to sell drinks. This is her third loan with MFP. She is very excited and thankful for the economic backing that you offer her to continue with her plans. She doesn't want to stop paying due to lack of money and it is for this that she promises to be very punctual and, above all, very responsible. She is very content to continue with this group since they are very accomplished and friendly. With the amount requested (S 1500) she will buy car and mototaxi parts and some tools that she uses in her work. Also, with 500 soles she wants to buy sodas and beers to start to sell from her house.
