A loan of $375 helped to purchase pea seeds and manure.


Norma's story

Norma is 30 years old and lives with her husband and four children is her own house located in the town of Llanco. She has been renting a small piece of land in the town of Shiusha for eight years where she grows potatoes and peas. However, her greatest wish is to buy her own land to be able to have more capital and invest in the purchase of more seeds. She has been saving over the past few years to be able to achieve her goal and she is almost there. Norma is planting a greater quantity of peas and hopes that she can obtain a higher income because there is a lot of demand in these months.

This is Norma’s first loan with MFP and she is happy to work in a communal bank. With the loan requested, she will purchase seeds and manure for the peas that she is growing.
