A loan of $275 helped to buy more animals.

Celinda's story

Celinda, 50, lives with her husband and two children in a leased house. For the last 10 years she’s been a cattle merchant. This activity takes place on weekends. Together with her husband they sell quite a bit allowing them to support themselves all week. He work consists in selecting and buying said animals. To do so, she studies everything concerning cattle raising so that she can carry out a good negotiation. In the future she’d like to have more working capital as well as to get pedigreed animals since they bring better prices than other common animals.

This is her 15th loan with MFP. She is very happy to know that she has financial help because she’s always been responsible with her payments. In addition, she enjoys being part of her communal bank because all the members are responsible, very mutually supportive people. She thanks all those people who will fund the loan she’s requesting that will be very useful for her business’ progress.

She will use the loan to buy more animals.
