A loan of $650 helped buy fertilizer.


Lorenzo's story

Lorenzo, 42, lives with his wife and 4 children in his own home.

For more than 15 years he has been working in agriculture and with livestock. He got started in this work because he inherited some land from his parents and from his wife’s parents. From then on they have been working the land tirelessly year after year as they follow the schedule for planting and harvesting.

Along with this, Lorenzo has livestock. He has 4 cows in his stable. He milks them for his family’s use, and he sells the rest of the milk. The agricultural work is the only source of income for Lorenzo and his family. This work not only generates economic resources, but it also provides them with basic foods for their home.

This is the second time that Lorenza has asked for a loan with MFP. It is his pleasure to work with his neighbors who form part of his community bank. He will use the loan to buy bags of fertilizer for his crops.
