A loan of $400 helped to purchase a small bull..


Saturnina's story

Saturnina is 35 years old. For 8 years she has lived with her 3 children in her mother's house.

She in the business of agriculture and livestock for a living. She has 8 years of experience in these activities. She likes to spend the majority of her time in the field, as her house is located in a rural area where she can raise livestock. She purchases animals (mostly cattle), then she feeds them for an average of 4 months, in order to then sell them at the livestock market in the city. "I very much like to negotiate, and if I don't get a good offer, I postpone the sale of the animal for a better time," she says happily. Now she wants to improve her business and put more capital into agriculture.

She belongs to the group "Los emprendedores" or "The Entrepreneurs" and this is her first loan with MFP, for which she is very grateful for the opportunity to achieve her objectives. She also promises to comply with her payment schedule. Saturnina will invest the money from this loan in the purchase of a small bull.
