A loan of $550 helped to buy sacks of organic manure.

Rita's story

Rita is 30 years old. She lives alone in a house she has in the countrysiD.. Throughout her life she’s learned all the basics to be a good farmer. Since childhood her parents instilled knowledge and skills in her that today serve as her means of support. She grows potatoes, corn and alfalfa which, once harvested, she sells. She accepts risks inherent in farming since on several occasions weather conditions severely affected her crops causing losses sometimes. Because of this, she also raises animals to help support herself economically.

She found out about MFP through a neighbor who invited her to form part of a group. This interested here because she was in need of cash liquidity to invest in her planting. Since then, she’s been punctual with her repayments. On this occasion, the money will be used for her corn crops; she will buy sacks of organic manure.
