A loan of $125 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Jilmer's story

Jilmer is 35 years old. He lives in the community Yanapuquio. There with his wife Rosmery, 24, he has 2 children. Danny is 6 and Junior is 9 months old. Agriculture is his main activity. He already has 15 years of experience doing this. The main products that he plants are potatoes and oca (a Peruvian tuber). After caring for them, he harvests them and sells them at the central market in town as well as in the different communities in his area. Now he is thinking about acquiring his own cropland and he is sure that he will have more profit in the future. This is his tenth loan with MFP and he is grateful for all of the support he has had so far. He has been able to obtain many things thanks to his communal bank, which gave him the confidence he needed. With the loan he is asking for, he will buy organic fertilizer since he will be harvesting soon and he wants to see his potatoes strong and nutritious.
