Carmen operates a butchering business and Marcial helps her sell the meat she produces in the capital where they can get the best price for it. "We sometimes go together and help each other", he says. The businesses are important to Marcial because the income they generate have allowed him and his wife to support their family. He wants to save enough now to send his children to university. Marcial belongs to the Santo Domingo D. Tapo community bank. This is his sixth MFP loan and he's grateful for the on-going help that he's received from the bank.
