A loan of $400 helped to purchase sacks of manure for cultivating her crops.

Daysi's story

Daysi is 19 years old, and is married to Danny, who is 24 years old. They are presently living with her parents in their home, but she and Danny hope to build a better future for themselves, and to one day have their own house.

Both Daysi and Danny make a living as farmers, and have some land that Daysi's parents inherited, and on which they currently grow cacao and coca plants. They work every day tilling and preparing the land, weeding out harmful pests and plants, and fumigating the plants so that plagues don't damage them. They have been farming for three years on their parcel of land, and have taken very good care of that land.

This is her first loan with MFP, and Daysi is very grateful for the support of the organization, as well as for the welcome she has received as a member of the solidarity group she has joined. With the support from this loan, Daysi plans to purchase sacks of manure for spreading on her crops and helping with the growing cycle.
