A loan of $375 helped buying fertilizer and compost.


Edwin's story

Edwin is 27 years old. He and his wife live in a rented house. Edwin has been farming potatoes, corn, broccoli and celery for more than eight years. Since then, he has always gotten up early in the morning to tend his crops, and his wife helps him with the harvest. After that, Edwin sells his produce at local markets. He hopes to one day own his own farmland, so that he no longer has to lease space for planting. This is his first loan with MFP. Since he’s a responsible person, he has also been invited to join a community banking group. Edwin will use his loan to buy bags of compost and fertilizer for his next planting.
