Doris
Doris is 56 years old and lives with her oldest daughter in her own home. She has worked day to day, breeding cattle and sheep for several years, but a year ago she started a pig farm that she periodically sells in the livestock fair in her region. In order to have good earnings, her animals have to have a good weight. This is achieved through good nutrition, for which she grazes her animals every morning at a distance of 3 hours by foot from her home. She returns in the afternoon. For Doris, this activity is usually a distraction because she goes to the countryside to breathe fresh air, and she is accustomed to this routine. For the future, she hopes to increase the quantity of animals in order to have more working capital. This is the second time that Doris has had a loan with MFP. She is very determined to continue working for the well-being of her family and also of the other members of her community bank. The money the she is asking for is to be invested in the purchase of more sheep and pigs.

Doris tiene 56 años, vive con su hija mayor en su casa propia. Trabaja día a día en la crianza de su ganado vacuno y ovino desde hace varios años atrás, pero hace un año implementó una granja de cerdos que vende periódicamente en la feria ganadera de su zona. Para tener buenas ganancias sus animales tienen que tener buen peso y esto se logra a base de una buena alimentación, por lo que pastea a sus animales todas las mañanas a una distancia de 3 horas de caminata de su casa y regresa en horas de la tarde. Para Doris esta actividad suele ser una distracción porque ella va al campo a respirar aire puro y está acostumbrada a esa rutina. Para más adelante, espera incrementar la cantidad de animales para tener mayor capital de trabajo. Es la segunda vez que tiene un préstamo con MFP, está muy dispuesta a seguir trabajando por el bienestar de su familia y también de los demás integrantes de su banco comunal. El dinero que está solicitando es para invertirlo en la compra de más ovejas y cerdos.
