Belen's story

Belén is 56 years old and a humble woman. She lives with Máximo, her husband of 30 years. They both have 3 children and live with 2 of them in their own home, located in Pampas. She is a hardworking woman with various activities. Her biggest dream is to offer her children the best. Mornings she raises her 6 cows that she takes out to pasture, so they can supply good milk. She makes cheese that she herself takes to the capital to sell. This gives her addition money, as she is very well known. Besides growing corn, potatoes, peas and quinoa. She cares for the crops thanks to her husband, who helps her. Together they harvest and sell their food at the Pampas fair. Now she wants to get into buying and selling beer, where she hopes to obtain good profit, since there is a lot of demand. She belongs to "Los Pétalos" [The Petals] support group, and this is her eighth loan with MFP. She hopes for your cooperation to continue with her goals. She is also happy to belong to the association because all of the members are responsible and supportive people. If Belén receives your support, she will invest the money she has asked for in purchasing natural and chemical fertilizer to spread on her corn crops. She has 3 hectares of farmland.
