Silvia
Silvia is 29 years old and lives in her own home with her partner and their three dependent children. Together they seek to get ahead on the basis of much effort and work.


Every day Silvia wakes up at dawn to begin work in her cornfields. Both she and her husband look after their land so that they can be assured of a good and productive harvest. Farming generates a decent income that gives her family an adequate quality of life. Silvia enjoys planting seeds because she knows exactly what to do, but she does not like constantly dealing with pests that have ruined a large part of her harvest on several previous occasions. Therefore, it is necessary that she remain vigilant. Silvia also raises cattle. Whenever emergency situations arise, she can always sell a head of cattle to earn some money. Being an enterprising woman, Silvia has many plans to keep progressing. One of her goals is to buy more cattle so that she can continue to sell them, thereby generating more income.


This is her second loan with MFP. Silvia is very grateful to everyone who made it possible to receive this loan that will allow her to continue working. The money will be used to purchase fertilizers for maintaining her land. She will also buy two heads of cattle for fattening and eventual resale.

Cada día se despierta al amanecer y se dirige hacia sus campos de maíz, junto con su esposo, para vigilar sus tierras, pues la cosecha futura debe ser muy productiva. La agricultura es una actividad que le genera buenas ganancias que le permite brindar a su familia una adecuada calidad de vida. A Silvia le gusta sembrar en sus tierras, ya que sabe cómo hacerlo, lo que no le gusta son las constantes plagas que muchas veces arruinan gran parte de la cosecha, por eso es necesaria la constante vigilancia.
Paralelamente se dedica a la crianza de ganado vacuno, ya que ante cualquier emergencia que se le presente puede vender alguno y ganar dinero. Y como es una mujer emprendedora, tiene muchos planes para progresar, entre ellos se encuentra el de comprar mayor cantidad de ganado para continuar en la comercialización, pues obtiene buenas ganancias en este negocio.

Este es el segundo préstamo que tiene con MFP y está muy agradecida con todas las personas que hacen posible que pueda recibir el crédito que le permitirá continuar trabajando. El dinero solicitado lo invertirá en la compra fertilizantes para asegurar sus tierras, además quiere comprar dos cabezas de ganado que engordará para después verderlos.
