Digna's story

Digna is 48 years old, married, and lives with her husband and two children. She has dedicated herself to raising animals for the past 20 years, which she fattens to sell in the markets or to butchers who come looking for livestock for sale in the fairs or for the large restaurants. Despite the fact that her children are now older, Digna is still devoted to helping them out with whatever they need. For this reason, she continues to grow as a livestock farmer and improving the breed of her animals so she can sell them at better prices. This is her fifth cycle of credit with MFP and, to date, she has not had any problems with her payments. Digna needs to purchase some calves to replace the animals she has sold so she always have a good quantity of livestock to bring to market.
