A loan of $950 helped to buy sheep.


Teva's story

Teva, 47, lives with her husband and three children in her own house located in Concepción. She’s dedicated her entire life to selling milk she gets from the cows in her stable. She taught her three children to help her milk the cows in the morning to then sell the milk to a firm that makes dairy products which makes it possible for her to earn daily income. She considers milk sales to be very profitable because she earns money and the investment isn’t too costly because she has sufficient feed for her cows since she grows alfalfa herself in her own fields. For later on she’d like to have more cows in her stable as well as other animals because she wants to go into sheep and pig sales. She knows she’ll accomplish this because she’s very dedicated and focused.

This is the third MFP loan and she’s very happy to know that she will have financial support. Besides, she enjoys being part of a communal bank because all its members are people she knows and they are responsible and very mutually supportive. She thanks those people who will fund the loan she’s requesting which will be very useful for her business’ progress. If Teva were to get your support, she will invest the requested money in the purchase of sheep to increase her herd of livestock.
