A loan of $650 helped buy sheep and pigs.

Giachina's story

Giachina, 27, lives with her husband and son in a rented house. For 4 years she has sold animals in the principal livestock fairs in her zone. She sells primarily on the week ends and when her neighbors have requests.

In addition to this business, Giachina sells food in the afternoons. In the mornings she tends to the animals and her house. The good thing about her work is that she gets the income needed to sustain her household. In the future, Giachina is thinking of buying a piece of land where she can put a stable for her animals.

This is her second loan with MFP. She is very happy to belong to her community bank because it allows her to grow economically and be in a place filled with friendship. The loan is to buy more animals like sheep and pigs. With these animals she will increase her working capital.
