A loan of $775 helped to buy natural fertilizer.


Amalfi's story

Amalfi is 60 years old. She is a hardworking woman. She lives with her husband and children, whom she cares for in a house they own. Her dedication to farming is impressive. Every morning, very early, she cares for her corn, potato and artichoke crops. Her work is going very well for her, especially in her artichoke crops, which are in demand in the market. It is one of the foods that is exported to othr countries, and this causes her crops to be bought long before they are planted and harvested. This helps her have the financial stability she needs. She also cares for animals such as sheep and guinea pigs, which she raises to sell to butchers that visit her house frequently. Now she wants to get some money together to get more farmland and thus plant a larger quantity with more profit. She belongs to the “Hacienda” communal bank and this is her fifth loan with MFP. She is grateful for all of your support, because this makes it possible for her to continue her work. In addition, she promises to make her payments on time, since she likes working with responsible and supportive people. Amalfi will invest the money she has asked for in buying natural fertilizer to feed her crops.
