A loan of $875 helped to buy fertilizers.

Fabiana's story

Fabiana, 33, is married to Luis, 40. They have 4 beautiful sons: Jerson, 16, Keny, 13, Marlon, 10, and Joel, 7. She is a farmer. Her crops are potato, peas, and corn. Fabiana is an enterprising woman for she also raises guinea pigs that she sells in the various adjacent areas. From a very early age she watched how her parents planted and harvested; that's how she learned the skills. A year ago, a social service agency lent her a breeding pair of guinea pigs so that she could raise the progeny. She did so and ever since has been breeding them for sale. The profits are very good in this business and, added to her income from farming, allows her to live comfortably and to get her children ahead in life. For the future, Fabiana would like to enlarge her guinea pig farm and sell in more comfort or even export the meat from these little animals. She has a lot of plans and is about to fulfill them because people who make the effort to reach their dreams, do so. However, she knows the road in not easy. This is her fifth loan with MFP and she is very excited about how she is going to use the funds: she will buy natural and chemical fertilizers for her farmland and also some guinea pigs to start enlarging her farm.
