Clotilde
Clotilde is 56 years old and is married to Teodoro. They have six children together. They currently live alone in the home she inherited from her mother thirty years ago.

Ever since she married her husband, she started working with livestock. Currently she has five cows, from which she obtains milk to make cheese. Thirty-five years ago, she met a miner who suggested she bring her heads of cheese to the mine workers, and she now still takes her cheese to the same mining camp every two weeks. Little by little she gained the customers she now has, and she brings them large amounts of cheese, which is why her own production is not enough and she has to buy more from other stock farmers. She is happy because she has been able to make a very good profit and even provide her children with a good education. Now she wants to put together enough money to buy more dairy cows, so that she can produce more cheese.

She belongs to the solidarity group Estrellitas and this is her first loan with MFP. She is certain that she will be able to improve her business with the financial support she is receiving. She also promises to make her payments on time, since she prides herself on being a responsible person.

Clotilde will invest this money in the purchase of approximately 700 heads of cheese.

Clotilde tiene 56 años, está casada con Teodoro, con quien tiene seis hijos. Ahora ellos viven solos, en la casa que heredó de su madre hace 30 años.
Desde que se unió con su esposo comenzó a dedicarse a la ganadería. En la actualidad tiene cinco vacas de las que extrae leche para la elaboración de queso. Hace 35 años conoció a un minero que le propuso llevar quesos a los trabajadores de la mina, y ahora continúa llevando queso al mismo campamento minero, cada 15 días. Poco a poco ganó los clientes que ahora tiene, lleva gran cantidad de queso, por lo que su propia producción no le abastece y tiene que comprar más a otros ganaderos. Se siente feliz, pues pudo obtener muchas ganancias, incluso brindar a sus hijos una buena educación. Ahora desea juntar el dinero suficiente para poder comprar más vacas lecheras y así tener una mayor producción de queso.

Ella pertenece al grupo solidario “Estrellitas” y este es su primer crédito con MFP, está segura que con el apoyo económico que está recibiendo podrá mejorar su negocio. Además promete ser puntual con el pago de sus cuotas, ya que gusta de ser una persona responsable.
Clotilde invertirá este dinero en la compra de aproximadamente 700 quesos.
