A loan of $1,000 helped buy fertilizers and sacks.

Saturnina's story

Saturnina is 44 years old and lives with her children and husband in their own house. Every day she rises early to care for her animals and her fields. Her children sometimes accompany her when they have time off from school, but the person who really works by her side is her husband, who helps her when he is on vacation since he works far from home. The physical work in the fields is hard and even more so during rainy weather. In spite of this the work continues, as does her desire to continue improving. In the future Saturnina plans to plant more areas of land to increase her production. This is her eighth loan with MFP, where she hopes to continue working because she has found friendship among the members of her communal bank. The money she requests is to buy fertilizers and sacks for packing up her future harvest.
