A loan of $350 helped to buy food for her cows.

Lucia's story

Lucia is 62. She has worked very hard her whole life to get ahead.. She lives in her own house and what she wants most is to have a peaceful old age.
She spends her days together with her beloved animals,feeding and caring for her cows with great tenderness so that they produce a lot of milk and she can make more cheese. Her main sales are in the Sunday market in her village where her cheese is very much in demand and sells quickly.
What she most likes about her work is to make the cheese in the comfort of her home. For the last 35 years she has been working in this and what she considers the most difficult aspect is the feeding of the cows. If they eat something they shouldn't, it can lower their milk production.

This is the first loan that Lucia has with MFP and she is very happy with the opportunity to obtain one. In her communal bank she is one of the most solid members among her companions. With the thousand new sols that she is requesting, she will buy more feed (hay) for her animals since the progress of her business depends on how well her animals eat.
