A loan of $1,000 helped to reupholster the seats in their minivan in order to provide better service.


Primitiva's story

Primivita, age 37, and Sergio have two children, ages 13 and 11. They live together in their own house in a livestock area. She is a woman who puts forth a lot of effort in all of the business activities that she does. That is the reason that she works in a vegetable business at the wholesale market and is also a farmer. However, the business activity that is giving her the greatest satisfaction is the inter-provincial transportation service. Four months ago she and her husband got a second-hand minivan. Her husband works with it every day from the city of Tarma to Chanchamayo (central jungle) and vice versa. Every trip he makes is one and a half hours, and he charges each passenger 15 soles. This amount is just to cover his vehicle maintenance expenses and to keep up with the legal requirements of his business activity. Primivita is happy with her business activities and with the support that she gets. Thanks to the educational talks, she decided to enter into this business activity. This is her sixth loan with MFP. She pledges to be punctual with her payments. She says that her communal bank, Mirando un Futuro Mejor, is united. She says that each meeting is a day of joy and learning. She will use the 2,500 soles to reupholster the seats in their minivan in order to provide better service.
