A loan of $600 helped purchase natural fertilizers.

Jenny's story

Jenny is a 30 year old modest woman. She lives with her husband, Fredy. They have two children, Lisbeth and Frank who they take care of in their house bought 10 years ago. Every morning, she makes her way towards the farm lands located in the high zone near her community. She has diverse crops of potatoes, corn and other tubers there. This area is favorable for the development of these crops. Since she was born, she has dedicated her life to farming. She has knowledge of growing foods well like fertilizing them, caring for them and removing the weeds that grow between the plots. On Fridays, She goes to the market in the area where she can buy different foods that she will consume during the other days. In addition, she can take advantage of the opportunity to sell some products. She also sells livestock that she raises like sheep. She belongs to the “ajo pata” group and this is her third loan with MFP. She is grateful because she considers this loan to be a support that helps her improve her business. She promises to be punctual with her payments. Jenny will invest the requested money in the purchase of natural fertilizers in order to start sowing fields and if there is enough money, she will purchase some livestock.
