Haydee's story

Haydee is 31 years old and she lives with her husband Hernan, 34, and they have 2 beautiful little children. They live in their own home located in a quiet village called Patay. Since she was 11 years old she has been a dedicated agriculturer, sowing potatoes, peas, gladiola flowers and fava beans. They have their own fields. In addition they have a stable where they grow horses that help them transport their tools and products to the fields. They also have cows that give them various litres of milk every day with which they make cheeses destined for sale in stores and to their neighbours.

Haydee's favorite thing to do is to sow peas and flowers because they are the products that are most sought out in the markets and the sales are very profitable. She is able to reinvest in her plantations while managing to cover the family's expenses. She plans on expanding her plantation so that she will be able to provide her children with better opportunities for her children. This is the fourth loan she seeks with MFP (Kiva Field Partner) and she is committed this process. A loan is the means to have an opportunity to advance and She enjoys working in a group. With the loan she is requesting she would like to purchase several sacks of organice fertilizer and two sacks of pea seeds, as she usually purchases every year.
