A loan of $725 helped fertilizer and farm tools.

Ivanez's story

Ivanez is 32 years old and lives in his own home along with his 32 year old wife, Lucy, and four young children. He’s been raising bananas and coffee for the past 12 years. He does this along with his wife, who also cares for the home and the children. What he likes most is that he is able to restore the land in search of better harvests. At the same time, he does not like having to pay high prices every time he needs to transport his products to the city, so now he collects all of the products from his sector, so that he can share the cost of transport and save money.

His hard work has allowed him to obtain many things, such as his home and his own farmland. This is why his future plans include improving his quality of life. He also wants to buy more farmland.

This will be his second loan through MFP and he is motivated to continue working with his communal bank because all of its members are responsible and hard working.

Ivanez will use the money from this loan to buy bags of fertilizer and farm tools that he needs to be able to carry out his labor.
