Domitila's story

Domitila is 46 years old. She lives with her husband and the youngest of their three children in their own house. Since she was a child, she has been involved in agricultural activities as she is from a family of farmers and ranchers. All of these life lessons have made her good at working on the land. She now cultivates potatoes, corn and vegetables. She also raises cows and the alfalfa that they eat. For years and years, thanks to this work, she has been able to support her family and also be a companion, with her husband, in the performance of these activities. In spite of the fact that, in previous years, they have lost all of their harvest and earnings because of a freeze that fell over the countryside, this didn’t deter them and they are moving forward. This year Domitila is growing more vegetables and also she is awaiting the corn and potato harvest. For the future she would like to improve the outcome of her harvests. This is her seventh loan with MFP. She is very glad to know she has the support of this financial organization. She is also grateful to be part of this community bank as all of the members are people that she knows. They are very responsible and supportive. She is thankful for the people that offer her the loan that she is requesting as it will be very helpful in her economic progress. With this loan that she is requesting, she will buy bags of fertilizer in order to grow vegetables, alfalfa and potatoes
