A loan of $1,100 helped to buy sacks of fertilizer.

Guillermina's story

Guillermina is 56, a widow, and has four adult sons who all work and are independent. She lives in the town of Santa Rosa in her own house. After losing her husband, she saw that it was necessary to get ahead on her own. Thus, she did not neglect her cacao and coffee plants and her citrus trees, but rather continued with the work her husband had been doing for a long time.

Guillermina’s plants are cultivated under an agricultural technical system based on training workshops in pruning and insect control that she constantly takes, and that ensures better quality production. Her sons help her with the work, but there are times when she must necessarily contract day laborer to help with the harvest and secure a more rapid selection and harvesting of the crops.

This will be her fourteenth loan with MFP and to date she has been very punctual with her payments. Therefore she hopes she can rely on you again. She will buy sacks of fertilizer with the 3,000 soles she is requesting and use it to improve the quality of her fields
