A loan of $500 helped purchase of additional motorcycle-rickshaw.

Silvia's story

Silvia is a mother of 4 children who are in school and lives with her partner, who is very supportive of her. She owns a motorcycle-rickshaw driven by her son; he has worked in transportation for 4 years. What Silvia enjoys about her business is that it is very productive and earns good income. Also, since her son drives the vehicle, he takes good care of it and everything earned goes directly to the family. The work becomes more difficult during the rainy season, which can cause the rickshaw not to run properly. This is her 6th loan with MFP, as she is very punctual with her payments. Silvia wishes to buy another motorcycle-rickshaw, as well as keep the current one in good working condition.
