Doris's story

Doris is 56 years old and lives with her oldest daughter in her own home. She has worked day to day, breeding cattle and sheep for several years, but a year ago she started a pig farm that she periodically sells in the livestock fair in her region. In order to have good earnings, her animals have to have a good weight. This is achieved through good nutrition, for which she grazes her animals every morning at a distance of 3 hours by foot from her home. She returns in the afternoon. For Doris, this activity is usually a distraction because she goes to the countryside to breathe fresh air, and she is accustomed to this routine. For the future, she hopes to increase the quantity of animals in order to have more working capital. This is the second time that Doris has had a loan with MFP. She is very determined to continue working for the well-being of her family and also of the other members of her community bank. The money the she is asking for is to be invested in the purchase of more sheep and pigs.
