A loan of $400 helped to buy cheese and meat.

Dominga's story

Dominga, 59, is a cheerful woman. She lives in company of her husband, Felipe, with whom she has five children but only two of them still live with them: Janet and Ruth who she cares for in a house she’s rented for two years.

Her economic activity is raising cows. She owns 15 plus some good quality sheep. Thanks to the milk production she gets she can make cheese in quantity so she started to work in the business of selling cheese and meat in the nation’s capital where she travels to once a week because she has many customers and demand is constantly on the rise. “I do very well in my work because there are days when my own production is insufficient and I have to buy from other cattlemen,” she affirms.

This is her fourth MFP loan. She’s been punctual and responsible all this time and she enjoys being a member of the “Virgen de Fátima” communal bank composed of supportive people with enterprising spirits. Dominga will use the loan to buy cheese and meat in quantity to stock her business.
