A loan of $800 helped to buy a small bull.

Saturnina's story

36 year old Saturnina is a woman who strives hard. She lives with her 3 beautiful children who she has been caring for in her mother-in-law's house for 8 years. Her courage and efforts are reflected in her work. Her work is centered on agriculture and livestock. She has 8 years of experience in this business. She likes to spend most of her time in the fields and her house is located in a rural area where she can raise her cattle, and she spends part of her time at her mother's house as there is more land there to raise them. Her work consists of buying animals, beef cattle for the most part, which she raises and fattens for an average of 4 months and then she sells them in the cattle market in the city, from which she makes good profits. "I really like to negotiate. Well, if I don't get good offers, I postpone the sale of the animal for a better time." she comments, very cheerfully. Now she want to improve her business and invest more capital in her farming. She belongs to the loan group The Entrepreneurs and this is her second loan from MFP. She is grateful for the support, with which she will be able to achieve her goals. She also promises to make her repayments on time. She also likes being part of the group and has known everyone for a long time.
Saturnina will use the loan to buy a small bull.
