A loan of $275 helped to buy fertilizers.

Isael's story

Isael is 30 years old, and lives in a house he owns with his wife and 6-year old son. He has dedicated himself to agricultural activities since he was a youth, given that he comes from a farming background. Currently, he plants potato and corn for his family’s consumption. He also grows alfalfa, which he sells in his town’s plaza. Concurrently, he leases sections of his farmlands to neighbors, which generates additional income. Isael takes advantage of the fact that there is less work to be done during his crops’ planting and growing stages by offering his services as a construction worker. In the near future, he would like to acquire more land to continue planting alfalfa and increase his sales. This is the first time he takes a loan with MFP as well as his first experience working with a cooperative bank. His promise is to work collaboratively to help his group progress. The funds that he requests will be destined for purchasing fertilizers and to make improvements to some of the structures of his home.
