A loan of $1,175 helped to buy more meat to sell.

Evelyn's story

28 year old Evelyn is a beautiful woman. She lives with Pablo, her husband of 3 years. They have 2 children: Rosa and Josmel, who they care for in their own home.
She is a hardworking woman. Her husband works for a business as a driver, transporting different foods all around the country. She works raising guinea pigs which she sells to order every 3 months. Thanks to her efforts and sacrifice she has been able to obtain 200 animals, which increase easily, and she knows to separate them according to kinship, pregnancy, and age to get the best results in breeding. She also has 4 small bulls and she hopes to breed those to sell in the same manner. Her secret is growing alfalfa so that she can give them good food and minimize costs. In the mornings, she works selling meat from a stall that she rents in the central market of the city. Now she wants to get a well set-up farm and, with the help of her husband who makes a good wage in his work, she expects to achieve this. She belongs to the loan group The Entrepreneurs and this is her 15th loan from MFP. She is grateful for their support, with which she will reach her goals. On the other hand, she promises to complete her repayments. She also likes being part of the group and has known everyone for many years.
Evelyn will use the money she is requesting to buy more meat to sell and will buy nutritionally balanced food for her animals.
