A loan of $725 helped to buy a donkey.

Faustina's story

Faustina, 46, is a hard-working woman. She lives in her own house with her four children, for whom she wants to continue working very hard to give them a better quality of life.

In Faustina's life, the green fields of the town in her district have been a very pleasant place to work. Her parents taught her this work since she was very little. She currently has land, properties that she and her husband bought. Nevertheless, she continues working these lands, 12 years growing cacao, coffee, and trees.

What she likes most is the harvest, since in this way she sees the reward after so much work. On the other hand, it's difficult for her to transport the harvested products to the storage centers, located an hour away.

Because of this, if she manages to get the loan she will buy pack animals like a donkey, which is very useful for transportation. In time, she wants to get enough money to buy new land.

This will be her seventeenth loan with MFP. She hopes for the support of every one of you to continue working in agriculture. With the requested money she will buy a donkey.
