A loan of $575 helped to buy feed for her cattle.

Victoria's story

Victoria is 42, and lives with Eusebio, her husband of 22 years. They have three children, whom they look after in their own house located in the town of Santa María.

As a good parent, she works tirelessly for her children's future. From the early hours of the day, she begins looking after her crops of peas, corn and barley on the farmland she rents, as she still does not have her own. She also owns four cows and three pigs. She sells the milk that the cows produce, an average of 15 to 20 liters a day, which is collected by the milkmen (this is what they call the workers who collect the milk for the dairy products plant). Now she wishes to increase the number of cows she owns, as she hopes to increase her milk production.

This is her sixth loan with MFP, where she obtained the support she so much needed. In addition, she promises to make her installment payments on time, as her group is made up of individuals as responsible as she is. Victoria will invest the money applied for in the purchase of sufficient grass to feed her cattle for the rest of the year.
