A loan of $675 helped for the purchase of a bull.

Aydee's story

Aydee is 43 years old, and lives in a house she owns with her husband and the youngest of her children who is 14 years old. For 22 years, she has dedicated herself to farming and raising livestock. She plants mostly potatoes and shares the daily tasks of this endeavor with her husband. When there is a harvest on a weekend, she is also helped by her older children who travel from another city. All the long years of experience have taught her how to manage difficult situations that she now can handle well. Aydee has customers that always buy from her directly at her home, or on her farmlands while she works her crops. Her future plans include continuing to dedicate herself to farming and raising livestock, as it is a great satisfaction for her to be able to remain on the land of her birth. This is the 12th opportunity for Aydee to receive a loan with MFP. She is one of the oldest members of her cooperative bank, and she considers her involvement in this group to have been a great experience because she learned the value of saving and of friendship. The funds she is requesting will be invested into the purchase of a bull to add to her livestock activities, while she waits for her next harvest.
