A loan of $1,050 helped to buy sacks of natural fertilizer for her next crops.


Rosalina's story

Rosalina, 27, lives with her husband and children in a leased home. For the last 9 years she has farmed potatoes, an activity she does on her father's land. She travels to sell her crops in the main markets in her area. Her income increases when she sells on the weekend because the rest of the week she takes care of her small son; he parents and sisters help her with her work. To date, her work has been profitable so she is planning to increase potato production in the future so as to sell at wholesale. This is her 3rd loan with MFP and she is enthusiastic about continuing with her work. Besides, she is very happy to be a member of her communal bank. The funds requested will be used to buy sacks of natural fertilizer for her next planting.
