A loan of $550 helped to buy natural fertilizer and perhaps some tools.

Dany's story

Dany, 21, lives in a house in his native village of Santa Maria and has been married to his wife, Lorena, for one year. Barely 3 years ago he began to earn his own money. Since he was a child his parents taught him to produce from the earth and to live with her. His main crop is coffee that he started planting on his own fields. Currently he has one small parcel but he would like to buy more in the future.

He says enthusiastically, “With hard work and savings, I will succeed“. He has begun to work with his communal bank and he hopes to save and have the capital to buy more fields and to be able to start planting other native products of the jungle. He also wants to have economic stability for his future children that he hopes to have with his wife. He belongs to the “Los Amigos Cafetaleros” communal bank and this is his second loan from MFP where he appreciates the support of all of you.
He also promises to be punctual with his payments. Dany will use the requested money to buy natural fertilizers to plant his coffee seedlings and if he has enough money, he will buy tools to prepare his fields.
