Lucy's story

Lucy, 48 years old, is an enterprising, hardworking, and very charismatic woman. She is married, but currently separated, and as three adult children. She lives with just two of them, in addition to her daughter-in-law and two grandchildren in the house that she and her husband built when they lived together. She has learned to be stronger over the years because of her personal life experiences. Lucy is a woman who likes to work; she doesn't like to be inactive. For this reason, it does not bother her when there is work to do. Her main source of income consists of renting out a mototaxi. She has one vehicle that she bought, thanks to the loans she has been given. This vehicle is driven by a chauffeur who gives her a ride every day for the service. She has done this for about a year. However, she has other jobs that generate income as well. She enjoys everything she does and does not hesitate in putting her best effort into her work every day with optimism. Her greatest desire is to refurbish the third vehicle she has, which is currently not working. She wants to fix it and increase her main source of income. This is her fourth loan with MFP. She is very happy for the financial help that they are providing her so that she will feel confident in advancing her work. Also, she promises to continue making her payments punctually as they are arranged. She is happy to belong to a communal bank because everyone is responsible and supportive. The requested loan sum is 1000 soles, which she will invest in making the monthly payments on her purchased mototaxi.
