A loan of $1,100 helped to buy bags of fertilizer to increase crop yield.

Maria's story

María is 53 and lives in her own home in Machente, Santa Rosa, with her husband Mauro and three children, who are her inspiration. María lives in the green plains far from the pollution of urban centers. She tends crops such as coffee and citrus fruits, which require much care. María has worked her fields for 20 years and has gained much farming knowledge as a result. During harvest and to bring products to market, she hires farm laborers. Maria recently also bought two pigs to raise, which greatly increased her revenues. Maria now seeks this credit from MFP to buy fertiziler to increase her crop yield. This is her 16th loan, and she is committed to prompt repayment. The 3,000 nuevos soles will go directly to cover costs of fertilizer for her crops.
