A loan of $400 helped to buy fertilizers.

Ana's story

Ana is 40 years old, she is a very hard working mother, she lives in her own house with her couple and father of her 3 children, so she works tirelessly in order to turn them into men of good for society. She grows peas and potatoes, so she wakes up very early to prepare breakfast for her husband who comes back at 7am after working on the farm during the early morning hours. The 22 years she has been working as a farmer give her enough experience to know the season and weather, which is very profitable for her. In the future she expects to increase the plants she farms, although you need a lot of patience to grow plants from the beginning like the pea plants where she took the picture. This is her 5th loan with MFP, during the previous loans she showed to be a very responsible with all her payments to the community bank, she promises to keep on paying the same way. She will invest the money on buying chemical fertilizers in order to develop the pea plants, flowers and potatoes that she farms each year.
