Magaly's story

Magaly is 24 years old. Her husband is Efraín, 25 years old. They have a child who is 3 years old. This young family lives in the house that they inherited from Magaly’s parents. She is a very happy young woman. She has been working with her husband for 5 years farming the land, planting cocoa plants. During harvesting time they have the help of laborers to help them to quickly carry out the harvest. They take their product to the collection centers who recompense them with good prices for each kilogram of cocoa. This is her third loan through MFP and she promises to be punctual with her payments as with her previous loans. She is a cooperative member of her communal bank. With this loan she will buy compost and fertilizer, and she will contract laborers to help fertilize the crops.
