A loan of $375 helped to buy fertilizer for her crops.

Lucila's story

Lucila is 23 years old and a simple, hardworking woman. She lives in her own home along with her 25 year old husband Leonardo, and two young children who are the motive for all her efforts. Every day from early in the morning she works growing potatoes and beans. The earnings that she receives from her crops are good as she sells them in the Tarma market where they pay her well. What she likes most about her work is harvesting as she can see the results of her hard work in the fields. She has been doing this activity for the past 6 years and considers the most difficult part is guarding her plants from the diseases that affect production. In the future, she will plant the entire space that she has in the countryside in order to increase her earnings. This is the third loan she has had with MFP and this assistance has helped her greatly in the progress of her work. In her communal group she is well loved by the rest of her companions as she is very loyal to them. With the thousand Nuevos soles that she is soliciting, she will purchase fertilizer for her crops.
