A loan of $550 helped to buy bags of fertilizer.

Flor's story

Flor is 46 years old. She is a widow and lives in her own house with her 3 children. For the last 17 years, she has done agricultural work with the help of her children, who were young children when they started. Now she has several heads of cattle and sheep. She also has some land where she grows vegetables, potatoes, and quinoa, which are sold to her neighbors and in the city center. For her, both activities are indispensable, and she spends almost all her time on them, making sure the animals are well-fed and ensuring insects do not damage her crops. She longs to continue becoming stronger in these activities and to improve the breed of her cows. This is her third credit with MFP, and she is very happy to know that she has financial support since she has always demonstrated responsibility with her payments. She is also happy to be part of her communal bank because all of its members are responsible and very supportive people. She thanks the people who will arrange the loan she is asking for. It will be very useful to her in the progress of her business. With the loan, she will buy bags of fertilizer for her next sowing season, and she will also buy wholesale vegetables.
