Cristina
Cristina, 52, has been married to Tomas for 30 years; he does various bricklaying jobs and they have no minor children who depend on them. They both live in a Mazahua community with much green scenery, mountains and rivers where the main economic activities are farming and animal husbandry.

Cristina has been raising sheep for four years now. Her activity consists in finding the sheep that she’ll buy either in her community or in her municipal center. She takes them home where she will raise them and then takes care of them feeding them grass and she also buys special feed. She injects them so that they will gain weight and in five months’ time they are ready to be sold.

Cristina has been a FRAC client for five cycles in which she’s been committed and has paid punctually. She is very grateful for the support she’s received thanks to the loans. On this occasion she will buy feed and three small lambs that she will fatten up and when they are grown she will sell them to people who make barbecue.

Cristina’s goal in the future is to buy more sheep and create a farm with the capacity to supply many customers.
