A loan of $350 helped to purchase more cattle.

Tomasa's story

Tomasa is 32 years, and lives with her husband and 2 children in her own house. For the past 5 years, accompanied by her husband, she has dedicated herself to raising bovine and ovine cattle. Tomasa and her husband take their animals to graze in the fields all day, but before they leave they prepare all that is necessary for their own meals. On occasion they go out together, but generally they take turns in the morning hours to be back in the afternoon. Whenever possible they look for fresh and abundant pastures to able to, after a period feeding their animals, take them to the principal cattle markets in their neighborhood and in this way see the fruits of their hard labor. In the future Tomasa and her husband would like to have more animals and diminish the time it takes to raise them to be able to purchase and sell them almost immediately. This is her third loan with MFP, she hopes to continue working with much enthusiasm and responsibility to make her payments so that the communal bank continues to work well. The money that she is requesting is for the purchase of wholesale cattle.
