A loan of $775 helped to buy manure and fertilizer.

Yessica's story

Yessica is a 25-year old mother who lives with her 27-year old husband Gabriel. They live in their own house. Their little baby daughter is their pride and joy, and they wish to provide her with a good future.

Yessica works in agriculture growing cocoa. She and her husband leave the house very early to work in the fields: tilling the ground, spreading fertilizer, weeding etc. They’ve been doing this for the last six years, and Yessica says that the harvests have been good. She’s sold the crop for a good price because of the high quality. In the future she wishes to obtain more land so she can increase production.

This will be her fourth loan with MFP, and she is very grateful to everyone who helps her continue farming. She also appreciates being a member of her community bank as all the members are responsible people.

With the S/. 2,000 loan, she will buy manure and fertilizer to spread on her land.
