A loan of $900 helped to purchase sacks of fertilizer for planting potatoes.

Feliz's story

Félix, age 46, lives with his wife in their own house. They have 9 children who are grown and independent. All his life he has been involved with farming, an activity that has allowed him to support his family. Today, his children have their own households, and he only works for himself and his wife.

During the planting season, he works with two bulls that help him plow the land. In this way he succeeds in obtaining very satisfactory harvests. Furthermore, his planted fields are strategically located in an area where there are irrigation canals that help with the development of his crops.
From the time he first sold his harvest in the local market, Félix saw his reward in his earnings. That’s why he hopes to continue working in farming.

This is his fifteenth loan with MFP, and he promises to be very responsible with his payments. He believes this loan will be very useful for the progress of his business. With the loan he is applying for he will buy sacks of fertilizer for planting potatoes again.
