A loan of $1,100 helped to buy animal manure.


Victoria's story

Victoria, originally from the city of Santa Rosa, is 54 years old. She is a cheerful and hard-working woman who lives in her own house. She lives with her two children, to whom she offers all of her support. Victoria is responsible and works with great care in order to get ahead. She cultivates cocoa, coffee and achiote. She brings these to sell at the trading centers in the cities of Santa Rosa and San Francisco, where she has various buyers who, knowing the quality of her products, do not hesitate to wait to buy from her. When it comes to her work, Victoria most enjoys planting her fields and making them fertile and productive. She has been doing this work for twenty years and considers it to be quite profitable. Thanks to her work, she has been supporting her children's education and, little by little, improving her quality of life. She will use this loan to buy animal manure to improve the quality of her crops. Going forward, Victoria hopes to continue to save her earnings, and she dreams that her children will become professionals. This will be her third loan through MFP and she knows that this support will be very useful in the progress of her work. She will use the 3,000 nuevos soles to buy animal manure to fertilize her land.
