A loan of $375 helped to buy sacks of organic manure.

Suci's story

Suci is a young woman of 20. She lives with her parents and is a farmer. She has worked her whole life in the fields, helping her parents in their work and gaining basic knowledge about farming so that she is able to work the land.

Suci is the youngest of her siblings and her parents are elderly. For this reason, she decided to take care of all the household tasks as well as the harvesting and sowing that take place on the farmland that the family owns. Suci takes the products that she harvests to sell in the town market herself.

This is the first time that Suci has requested a loan. She learned about MFP through her neighbors who told her about the advantages of working as part of a community bank. She pledges to be punctual in making her repayments. Suci will invest this money in buying sacks of organic manure and will start sowing beans and peas.
