A loan of $1,100 helped to buy natural fertilizers..


Marta's story

Marta is 25 years old and married to Julio, age 30. They have two children and live in their own home in the community of Nueva Fortaleza de Mantaro in the District of Pichari. Marta is aware of her limitations since the only courses she completed were in high school, but she did not graduate. However, she does not allow this to be an excuse that prevents her from pursuing her dream of having a business. Following the advice of her family, Marta started producing cacao. Thanks to her perseverance and enthusiasm, she was able to achieve one of her goals which was to improve her quality of life. Today she produces two outstanding products, coffee and cacao. Through her good results, she has achieved personal and financial satisfaction. None of this would have been possible if not for the support her partner provides, both in planting and harvesting. However, the latter requires the help of workers who can easily gather the fruit. Her harvest is carried to the collection center in her community and sold at a good price.

This is her first loan with MFP and she promises to submit her payments on time. This loan of 3000 PEN will be used to buy natural fertilizers.
