A loan of $550 helped to buy medicine for her cows as well as grass seed to plant a pasture for grazing.

Eva's story

Eva is 47 years old and lives with two of her four children in a house she owns. She has been farming almost all her life, but also ventured into the livestock business 16 years ago when she began selling excess milk produced by her cows to a local dairy. Her cows produce 60 liters of milk a day, which generates a lot of income. She also earns revenue from the sale of male calves.

Occasionally, Eva's children help her with her livestock business and farm. They grow potato and maize, but mostly for the family's consumption. Most of the land is dedicated to the dairy business because it is more profitable. She is applying for a small loan to expand and improve her stables.

This will be Eva's third loan from MFP and she hopes to again receive the institution's financing. She is able to meet all requirements and will responsibly repay the loan. With the loan capital, Eva will buy medication for her dairy cows as well as grass seed to cultivate pasture land for grazing.
