Concepción
Concepción, 49, is married to Isamel who does various bricklaying jobs; they have no dependent children. They live in a Mazahua community whose activities are farming and animal husbandry.

Concepción’s economic activity is raising animals; in her case it is bulls. She buys the bulls in her municipal center and takes them home where she raises them and fattens them up thus: She buys feed, prepares it and gives it to her bulls. Every eight days she constantly treats them for parasites and gives them vitamins for a month and a half. She feeds them and when they have spent five months under this care she sells them. She sells them in her town to butcher shops and sometimes to individual customers.

Concepción has been a FRAC client for five cycles in which she’s been very punctual with her payments. On this occasion she’s asking for the loan to buy two bulls. She says she’s been in this business for a year and a half.

Concepción is a dreamer and when she experimented with raising cattle she realized it’s a very good investment and she says that in the future she’d like to continue buying larger numbers of cattle and more feed to raise between 7 and 8 bulls and someday have her own butcher shop.
