A loan of $775 helped to buy sacks of natural fertilizers.

Pelaya's story

Pelaya is 62 years old and has been happily married to her husband for 30 years. They both live with 3 of their 6 children in the house she inherited 37 years ago. She feels very happy because she has worked as a farmer her whole life. Her years of experience in cultivating land brings her satisfaction because, for more than 32 years, she knew how to work with her husband to take advantage of farming activities. She was able to support her 6 children, who are now almost all men and women, with this important source of income. Currently, she dedicates herself entirely to growing corn, potatoes, alfalfa and wheat, which she herself sells in order to earn income.

Her great wish is to see her 2 youngest children finish their studies, which is still a few years away and the reason for her daily efforts. She belongs to the “My Bank” cooperative and this is her 17th loan with MFP. She gives thanks to all of you, as she will be able to obtain the loan she needs to meet her objectives. Likewise, she promises to make her payments on time, as the members of her association are responsible and united.

Pelaya will invest the requested funds into the purchase of various sacks of natural fertilizers for her next sowing season.
