Nancy's story

Nancy, forty-three, is a hardworking woman. She lives with her husband, Félix, and her son, Jovani, whom she takes care of in the house she inherited when she was sixteen. She's a very hardworking woman; from the time the sun comes up she works at raising her animals; she has high-quality milk cows that she looks after with great dedication because they are very delicate. "They are forever dying of colic," she says. She says she sells liters of milk that her animals produce on a daily basis, and that's how she earns her living.

In addition, like a good farm woman, Nancy grows food and sells it in her eatery, another of her financial activities. Thirteen years ago she opened up a store stocked up with foods that are basic necessities in her neighborhood because there aren't any other stores like hers, so she's able to make a stable income and have steady customers that buy food at her store year after year.

This will be Nancy's eighth loan with MFP. She is grateful for the support she has received because she feels comfortable investing in her business. She promises to make her payments on time because in her group she has learned to be responsible. She'll invest her loan in sacks of rice and sugar, as well as boxes of milk, oil and other items, and a milk cow to expand her herd.
