Mery's story

Mery, 28 years old, lives with Wilder who is 32 years old. They have two children: Vigner, 9 years old and Abel, 4 years old. As a family unit they live in their own house located in Ricrican. They work in agriculture. The products that they fertilize and constantly care for are potatoes and other tubers. Their constant care has brought them good and generous harvests. This is why the wholesale merchants in the central market of their city know them and always await the fruits of their harvest. In the same way that they care for their plants, Mery also buys and sells lamb. She sells this meat weekly in the market. She has been doing this for the past eight years. She is thinking about taking a small space in the market where she can sell her products. This is their eighth loan with MFP, and as an active member in the communal bank, she has committed to the constant activities that develop in each meeting. With the loan that she is requesting, she will buy five sacks of organic fertilizer. With the rest of the money she will buy various kilos of meat the she sells each month. This is her main activity. .
