A loan of $525 helped to buy fertilizers.


Aida's story

Aida, 56, is married to the father of her three children, of which, only one still lives at home with them. Her husband grows carrots, spinach and lettuces in his own farm but, because she suffers from foot pain, she is unable to get around very easily and is restricted to helping him only with the least strenuous chores. However, during harvest time, he hires 5-8 persons to work the fields for a salary of 15 soles a day each, including lunch. On those days, Aida prepares the lunch for all of them and, because she is famous for her tasty preparations, they are all very satisfied. This is her 7th loan with MFP. She is a very punctual client and she lends her house for all the communal bank meetings. The funds requested will be used to buy chemical fertilizers to use on the vegetable crops.
