A loan of $350 helped to buy fertilizers.

Marcos's story

Marcos is 55 years old, married and has 3 children who live at home. Since he was very young, he has worked the land and removed the weeds from his farms of beans, bananas and coffee. He takes care of each one of his plants with lots of love; due to the fact that the harvests depend on his careful attention in order for them to be successful.

In all this time his crops have never failed, therefore he is glad to dedicate himself to the plants. For him, the support of his wife with the farm work is fundamental; because of this he loves her very much.

In order to sell the products, both of them travel to the city and try to sell them to the highest bidder so that their earnings will increase so that he can provide for his children’s food and education, he adores them and they are the reason for his efforts.

This is his first loan with MFP and he is very happy because he has been invited to be a part of a communal bank. He has promised to not abuse the confidence and to be punctual with all the payments. He is requesting funds in order to purchase chemical fertilizers for his crops.
