Marcial's story

Marcial is 49 years old, he is married with Olga and they have six children. They live in the house his wife inherited from her parents 10 years ago.
He is a farmer and an animal breeder. He grows potatoes and alfalfa in his own lands, and he says: “I plant alfalfa because there are many animal breeders where I live, and I can sell them food for their animals”. He has already 12 years of experience and he sells his products to retailers of his town. He also breeds animals, a good breed of bulls he sells during the fairs of his community. He now hopes to plant a bigger quantity of alfalfa, as in the summer he receives more requests and can therefore earn more money.

He has entered the “Estrellitas” (Little Stars) Group and this is his first loan with MFP. He is sure that thanks to this economic support he will improve his production. He also commits to being punctual with the repayment of his dues, as he is a responsible person.
Marcial will invest the loan he is requesting in the purchase one bag of alfalfa seeds and in manure for his crops.
