A loan of $825 helped purchase a young bull.


Maria's story

Maria is 54 years old, a widow, and she lives with her 2 children in her own house. For more than 20 years she has been breeding animals as her family did for many years before, but Maria also farms sowing mostly potatoes and corn. She takes the animals to areas with abundant fresh grassland with the help of her children. Several months later the animals are sold at the stockbreeders' fair according to weight and size. For the future, Maria plans to increase her stockbreeding activities buying more cattle. This is her sixth loan with MFP and she is very grateful to the community bank for being a space that promotes solidarity and therefore she renews her work commitment. The requested loan will be spent to buy a young bull of breed in order to increase the number of animals.
