A loan of $1,000 helped buy fertilizers.


Serafina's story

Serafina is 63 years old and lives with her children in herr own house. Since she was a child, agriculture activities supported her home and it continues that way. Her main crop is potatoes. She arises early to check on her crops; her children always help and she feels supported by them. In spite of her age, Serafina still has a lot of energy because in the fields she feels alive and active. In the future she hopes to improve her production and leave her children with a source of income to support themselves. This is her 12th loan with MFP. Serafina is one of the members who drives her group and now she is committed to keep working so that her communal bank continues to be united. With the loan she requests, she will buy fertilizers for her next planting.
