A loan of $200 helped to buy a bag of natural fertilizer.


Marina's story

Marina is 46 years old and is a friendly lady. She lives in her own house together with her 4 lovely children, for whom she wants the best quality of life. Marina is a hard-working woman and she likes the country lifestyle. Sixteen years ago she started working in the cultivation of coffee plants, which she obtained with a lot of hard work. During the harvest she usually requires the help of day-workers so that they can easily pick the fruits. For Marina, the most difficult thing is when she is unable to fight the plagues which affect her coffee production. For this reason she found out about MFP loans, and she did not hesitate in approaching a consultant. Now, thanks to the support she can carry out her planned work. This is her third credit, and she promises to make her repayments punctually. She supports her communal bank for its good organization. She will use the 500 nuevos soles to maintain her produce such as her coffee plants with the purchase of natural fertilizer.
