A loan of $400 helped to buy more animals and clothing to sell.


Liz's story

Liz, 33, has lived for three years in her father's house in the town of Ataura, with her daughter, Jenifer. Her main source of income is animal sales. She buys bulls, cows, sheep and other animals and takes very good care of them, since her goal is to fatten them to sell to butchers who visit the area. Work is going well for her and she hopes to be able to increase her capital soon to buy more livestock. For two months she has also been buying and selling clothing, to earn an extra daily income to help cover household expenses. She is a member of the communal bank "Nuevo amanecer" and this is her first loan through MFP. She is committed to paying back the loan on time. Liz will use the money to buy more livestock, as well as different clothing to continue with her sales.
