A loan of $750 helped to buy compost and fertilizer.

Teofila's story

Teofila is 58 years old. She lives with her husband Andrés and they have a daughter Marisol who is 16 years old and who is a school student. They live together in the town of Limonchayocc where they have their own house.

For twenty years Teofila has been dedicating her time to her coffee crops. She tries to give the best proper care to her plantations and because of this principle many of her buyers have been satisfied with the quality of her crops.

This would not have been possible without the help of her husband. All the same, in times of harvest she needs the help of laborers so that she can rapidly harvest the crop.

Thanks to her daily efforts she is making a good profit.

This is her second loan through MFP, and she is very happy to know that she can count once again on the support of the loaners and she is ready to make her payments promptly in accordance with the prescribed payment plan.

With the 2000 soles she will buy compost and fertilizer in order to maintain her crops and she is looking forward to grafting them as a way to develop them.
