Edga's story

Edga is 44 years old, and lives with her son in her own home. She has dedicated herself to transportation for the past 15 years. Her father owns a large auto fleet that offers transportation services between provinces and during all these years she was the right hand of her father. Some years back she became independent and with her savings acquired a bus, now she is the ticket collector of her own mobile unit. The work that she carries out takes place all day long, from the early hours of the morning until the late hours of the night. Edga has many wishes to continue moving forward to improve the income of her household. In the future she hopes to acquire another mobile unit that will allow her to obtain higher earnings. This is the first time that she has requested a loan with MFP, for which she has committed herself to working in a responsible manner in her communal bank. The money that she has requested will be invested in the repair and maintenance of her bus, which is her indispensable work tool.
