Mercedes
Mercedes, 35, has a daughter. They live in her sister's house in the town of Sicaya. She takes care of her five orphaned nieces and nephews, and she and her family support each other in raising them. "I devote every afternoon to them. We're all they have," she says.

With her immense heart and a desire to get ahead, two years ago she was hired by her town's government to do the cleaning in the morning. For the past two years she has raised guinea pigs while taking care of her nieces and nephews in the afternoon. Currently she has 150 of them. She also grows alfalfa to feed them. She wants to expand her shed because every four months she increases her production, which she sells to the butchers in her town.

She belongs to La Vecindad Solidarity Group and this is her third loan with MFP. She promises to make her payments on time as on previous occasions. It pleases her to be part of her group because all of the members are responsible and supportive people.

Mercedes is going to invest the requested money in improving her guinea pig shed. She will expand it to be able to separate them by breed.
