Raquilda
Raquilda, 49, is married to Jorge, with whom she has 5 children, only one of which lives at home. She owns her own house in the area Daniel Hernández.

Her principal activity during the week is to buy and sell sheep. She amasses sheep from farms and then goes off to sell them for the best offer at different animal fairs in her area. She’s well-known in her area because she travels quite a bit. The festival in honor of the animals is coming up at this time. “There my income increases, as I not only sell sheep, also pigs, cows, bulls and donkeys. I have to take advantage of the festival as it’s only once a year”, she comments. The same way, but with her husband, she sells firewood; they buy trees and chop wood themselves to sell it in the city where they have clients. Parallel to that job, her husband works in construction, renovating different houses and building others. Thisis the way they hope to generate more income and maintain family stability.

This is her 8th loan with MFP, where she awaits another small loan so she can meet her objectives. She promises, once again, to meet her payments. Also, she enjoys being part of the group because all of the members are responsible and united people.

Raquilda will invest the loan in buying more animals to stock up her business.

Raquilda tiene 49 años, su esposo es Jorge, con quien tienen cinco hijos, de los cuales sólo vive con uno de ellos. Su casa es propia y está ubicada en la localidad de Daniel Hernández.

Su principal actividad durante la semana es la compra y venta de ovejas. Su trabajo consiste en juntar ovejas de los ganaderos, las que después vende a mayor precio en las diferentes ferias ganaderas de su localidad. Viaja mucho, por eso es muy conocida en su zona. En esta temporada comienza la festividad en honor a los animales. “Ahí mis ganancias se incrementan, ya que no solo vendo ovejas, también cerdos, vacas, toros y burros. Tengo que aprovechar la fiesta, pues solo es una vez al año”, comenta. De la misma manera, y junto a su esposo se dedican a la venta de leña; compran árboles y ellos mismos cortan la leña para comercializarla en la ciudad, donde ya tienen clientes fijos. Paralelo a ese trabajo, su esposo realiza el oficio de albañil, arreglando diferentes casas y construyendo otras. Es de esta manera que esperan mejorar sus ingresos y para mantener la estabilidad familiar.

Este es su octavo crédito con MFP, donde espera de un pequeño préstamo para que pueda cumplir con sus objetivos. Por otro lado, promete, una vez más, cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas. Además le agrada ser parte de su grupo porque todos sus integrantes son personas responsables y solidarias.
Raquilda invertirá el dinero solicitado en la compra de más animales para abastecer su negocio.
