Maria
María is 38 years old; she is separated and lives with her two children in her in-laws' house. For the last seven years, she has been working with livestock and agriculture. She also grows pastureland for feeding her animals, and in addition grows corn, a product that she sells periodically. However, her most important source of income is selling dairy milk, obtained from her three cows.

During the time that she has been doing this work, she has found that it is very important to provide good conditions for her animals, especially her cows as she depends on them to be able to produce the milk she needs to sell. Over time, she has built a cowshed. However, it is now very necessary for her to improve the infrastructure of the cowshed, because she is coming up to the winter season, and this poses many difficulties if she is to keep the cowshed clean. It is for this reason that she decided to look for financing options that will allow her to put her plans into practice, and so she decided to work with MFP as she saw it was a good option with repayments that were within her reach.

With the money that she is receiving, she will buy sand and bags of cement. She will also hire workmen to put down a concrete floor in her cowshed, which will considerably improve the care of her animals.

Desde hace 7 años se dedica a la ganadería y la agricultura, asimismo cultiva pastos para alimentar a sus animales y también siembra maíz, producto que comercializa de manera periódica.

Con el tiempo ha implementado su establo, sin embargo le es muy necesario mejorar la infraestructura de su establo porque se acerca la época de invierno y es donde más dificultades se presentan si se trata de mantener limpio su establo. Por tal motivo decidió buscar opciones de financiamiento que le permita concretar sus planes en mente, es en ahí que decidió trabajar con MFP ya que vio que es una buena opción cuyas cuotas están a su alcance. Y con el dinero que reciba comprará arena y bolsas de cemento, también contratará mano de obra que le servirá para colocar piso de concreto en su estalo que mejorará considerablemente la atención de sus animales.
