A loan of $800 helped to purchase sand and sawdust in large quantities for the making of bricks and tiles.

Dominga's story

Dominga is 46 years old and is a simple woman. She lives with her husband and children in the house that she inherited from her parents. She confronts problems in a wise manner. She does not own a machine for making bricks and tiles. But that was not an impediment. She rented one and in that way began to make bricks herself and with her husband's help, she makes bricks and tiles by the thousands over the course of a month. She hopes to increase productivity over time and with experience and above all with capital. She knows that she will be successful because she has success selling the thousands to businessmen that visit constantly. In addition, she notes that she has agricultural fields where she plants alfalfa and that are also rented to ranchers that need feed for their animals. Now she wants to buy the land where she makes the bricks and thus not have to rent it.

She belongs to the communal bank "Western neighborhood" and is with her 20th loan with MFP. For this reason she is grateful for your support, by which she will reach her goals. She also promises to repay her loan in a timely fashion. She is happy to be part of the Association, since she has known the group for many years.

Dominga will invest money in the purchase of sand and sawdust in large quantities for the making of bricks and tiles.
