Carmen's story

Carmen is a 25 year old happy lady who lives with 29 year old Candel. They live in a home of their own, together with their only son, five year old Luis, to whom they want to provide a better future. With lots of effort, Carmen has been able to work her land and make it productive. She raises coffee, a product that she later sells for greater prices to buyers in her area. They wait for her products because of its good quality. What she likes most about her work is caring for her crops, and she does it with great enthusiasm. She’s been doing this for six years and she considers the most difficult part to be transporting the products from her farm to her location, because the sacks are heavy and they tire her out very much. In the future she wants to buy fertilizer to maintain her crop and continue to produce good coffee products.

This will be second loan thorough MFP and she is happy about the financial support she is getting. It will allow her to complete her work. She will use the 1,500 PEN ($575) from this loan to buy fertilizer, maintain her crop, and continue to obtain good coffee products.
