Nery's story

Nery, who is 41, is a hard-working woman. She is married to Eleazar who is 44 and they both have seven children. They live in a rented house located in Unión Leticia. Every morning, starting very early, she is dedicated to selling food in a small room in her house. And at night, she sells hamburgers. In this way, this job has become very profitable and she is able to pay the bills. But she is not only dedicated to this work. At a young age, Nery learned to farm and when she grew up and consolidated her family she was able to acquire land where she cultivates beans, peas and spinach. With time and the experience that she has, she was able to adapt to the market and rent more farmland. With this, she was able to plant in great quantities and obtain better earnings. Now, she wishes to buy her own farmland and open her own restaurant. This is her fifth loan with MFP and she is very happy to belong to her community bank where unity and solidarity reigns. With this loan, she will obtain fertilizers for her bean crops since she will harvest them very soon.
