A loan of $375 helped to buy pesticides.


Amer's story

Amer is a 31-year-old rsponsible, hardworking man. He lives in his own home with Haydee, his wife of 30 years, and their two beloved children, 11-year-old Aldair and 7-year-old Mayely. Amer's work requires a lot of determination and effort. For the past 8 years, most of his time has been spent in the fields overseeing his plantings. At harvest time, he has help from other laborers so that he can complete it quickly. After harvesting, he takes his products to sell to the warehouses where he receives very good prices per kilogram. Over time he wants to purchase more land so that he can raise more cacao and barbasco plants. Now his priority is to fumigate the crops. A better harvest will provide more income. This will be his 5th loan cycle with MFP, and he is happy to have the financial support. He also promises to make his payments on time. He gets along with all the members of his communal bank and is grateful that his companions are responsible. With the loan he is requesting, he will be able to purchase pesticides to keep his fields fertile.
