A loan of $750 helped to buy natural fertilizer.

Teofila's story

Teófila, 32, is a tenacious woman. She lives with her husband, Germán. They have two children together that they care for in their own house located in Santa Matara. As always, this successful woman heads out to her fields at first light where she plants a variety of greens and vegetables as well as potatoes. She has many years of experience in farming from which she obtains economic sustenance for her family. She very much enjoys clearing her fields and keeping them safe from infestations that are a scourge there. She also takes advantage of her time to care for her animals which she takes uphill to pasture so that they can feed on green, natural grasses. She has several head of sheep. She relates that she fattens them up to then take to sell at higher prices in a well-known market in the zone.

She belongs to the “Maraypampa” communal bank and this is her second MFP loan. She feels happy because she found the help she so needed to start toward her objectives. She is responsible in everything she does so promises to be punctual with her payments. If Teófila were to receive your support, she will use the requested money to buy natural fertilizer to spread among her corn and potato crops.
