A loan of $500 helped purchase of food for her animals.

Rerika's story

Rerika is 25 years old. She lives with her partner and father of her 3 children in a rented house. She took care of her parent's animals beginning in her childhood, but what she longed for was to have a clothing sales business, a dream she could not fulfill, as when she formed her family, she continued caring for animals, but this time together with her husband. She has mainly pigs, which she raises to sell the meat. This activity has not been expensive for her because after harvesting and selecting her potatoes, the leftovers serve as food for her pigs. Rerika is very happy with caring for animals and the agricultural work that she carries out with her husband. Her goal is to buy her own house for the well-being of her children, who are still very young. In all this time that she has been working with MFP she has proven to be a client who is very punctual with each of her payments, and she has just requested her 4th loan. With this money she will buy concentrated food for the rapid fattening of her pigs, and also fertilizer for her small potato farm.
