A loan of $200 helped to do maintenance on her motorcycle.

Diana's story

Diana, 25, lives with the father of her two children, ages 8 and 2. This young family lives in their own home in the central jungle district.

Diana's a very responsible young mother. From the age of 18 she already was working in various jobs helping her mother in a bakery. With great effort she managed to save and acquire three motorcycles that she's still paying for, two motorcycle taxis and one linear motorcycle. "My partner and I work hard to pay for these motorcycles," she says.

Her partner is responsible for driving one of them, giving local transportation service to passenger from his city. She rents the other two vehicles to other people, earning from 30 to 35 soles [PEN] a day.

Diana's responsible for monitoring and maintaining the vehicles. Every six months she changes the oil and does a diagnostic. She has a lot of plans in mind. With the savings she gets she plans to open another bakery business so she can continue with her business very carefully.

She needs help to do the maintenance on one of her motorcycles. This is her third loan with MFP. She'll use the 500 PEN to pay for the maintenance on her linear motorcycle, so she can continue renting it and getting income for her family.

She's grateful for the support this time and she gives her word that she'll make her payments punctually. She belongs to Luz y Verdad Communal Bank and is happy about having responsible members.
