A loan of $550 helped to buy sacks of organic fertilizer.

Delbor's story

Delbor is 33 years old. He is a hardworking man who lives with his wife, Cledina, who is 33 years old and with whom he has 2 children. They all live together in their own house, in the town of Patay. He has been working in agriculture for more than 13 years, planting potatoes and peas on some pieces of land he owns. Generally his wife is in charge of the domestic work and caring for their children.

What Delbor likes most is cultivating potatoes and watching them as they grow because he is very careful with his crops; he is certain that taking good care of the land is the key to having successful harvests. On the other hand, he dislikes fighting against the climatic variations. The wind and the rain are very strong and they don’t let the plants develop normally. He is steadfast and continues in his work because he finds his work profitable since it allows him to cover educating his children, the costs of his household, and to save to buy more land so he can plant more. He has also been able to open a small grocery store in his house.

This is his fourth loan with MFP, and he is happy to continue working with the members of his communal bank, who all work actively. With his loan he plans to buy several sacks of organic fertilizer for his next planting.
