A loan of $1,150 helped to buy a quality cow to add to her stock.


Aquilina's story

Aquilina, 36, is married to Nazario, with whom she has three children; only two live with them: Julisa and Etson. They care for their children in the house they inherited from her parents 19 years ago. The area where Aquilina lives specializes in cattle raising. Therefore, she began her business buying and selling cattle. She buys and raises good quality cattle, hoping they will yield good milk so that she can make high profits when they are ready for market. She works with her husband and another rancher. She also grows potatoes, corn, and beans on her own land.

This is Aquilina's sixth loan cycle with MFP, and she feels comfortable with the support she receives and grateful for the institution's confidence in her. She promises to make her payments on time so that she doesn't disappoint her group members, who are caring and responsible. Aquilina will use the loan to buy a quality cow to add to her stock.
