A loan of $650 helped buy a bull.


Carlos's story

Carlos is 50, lives with his wife and two children in a house they own. For 40 years he has worked in agriculture, this long path has allowed him to overcome difficulties in previous harvest seasons caused by weather problems and the decrease in value of his products. Currently he works taking care of livestock and supervising crop land, Carlos eagerly waits for harvest season to see the results of his family’s hard work, everyone helped out. The expectations for a good harvest are more clear for Carlos, because the weather doesn't seem to be against his wish. Later on, he wants to spend more time working with Livestock and growing his own food for the cattle, which will allow him to save on costs. This is the second time that Carlos requests a loan from MFP, and he is very happy for being part of the community bank, to which he is committed once more to keep getting ahead with hard work. The money requested will be used to buy a bull and increase the amount of livestock he owns. Also, with the remainder we will fumigate to avoid pests in his crops.
