A loan of $725 helped purchase fertilizers & citrus fruit plants.

Yeni's story

Yeni is 30 years old and lives in her own home with her husband Fidel (age 37), who is a farmer, and their two small children.

At a very young age, Yeni learned how to grow different fruits. She currently grows citrus fruits and bananas. Even though her work is complicated because of the patience and dedication that is required, she knows that she will be rewarded with a fruitful harvest. Her products are sold to the wholesale merchants who offer good prices for her merchandise. This allows her to help her husband with the household expenses. At the same time, Yeni sells beauty products of a well-known brand and also earns good income from this work. She is very satisfied with both of her businesses because they allow her to work peacefully without having to neglect her children. Being an enterprising woman, Yeni has plans to produce fruit in greater quantity and also start up another business, but she hasn’t decided what type it will be.

This is her second loan with MFP. Yeni is extremely grateful to everyone who made this loan possible so that she can continue working. She plans to invest the money she requested in the purchase of fertilizers and citrus fruit plants for the next crop season.
