A loan of $725 helped purchase plantain plants and fertiliser.


Eliana's story

Eliana is 50 yeras old and lives with her beloved husband Rosalindo, 55. They have 4 children: Franklin, 16, Linger, 15, Madelin, 13 and Gisela, 9.

Every morning Eliana works on her agricultural plots with her work tools in hand because she loves to always see her farm clean. She has been doing this activity together with her husband for 10 years. The products that she sews are maize, plantains, yuca and coffee. Thanks to the good administration of her earnings, her family doesn't lack for necessities, in fact they live comfortably.

In the future Eliana wishes to plant greater quantities of plaintains and maize, for which reason she is buying more land with the hope of becoming a major wholesaler of jungle fruits.

This is the fourth loan she has had with MFP. Eliana is very content because her communal bank makes her strong every day, because it is made up of hard-working and responsible people. WIth the money she is seeking she will buy 150 plantain plants and various sacks of fertiliser.
