A loan of $3,025 helped a member to purchase input items for planting potatoes.


Flor De Papa Group's story

Teofilo is 30 years old and single, and has completed four years of primary schooling. He makes a living as a potato farmer, and started his farming business with support from his parents. He now has 12 years of experience in the field.

The group pictured above has come together and organized themselves well. They are presently requesting a loan which they plan to put towards the purchase of input products for planting their potato crops. With this investment, they plan to buy seeds, manure, insecticides, and other items, which they hope will help them to increase their potato production, sales and overall income. All of the group members make a living farming potatoes.

In this group: Teofilo, Cirilo Humberto, Elfido, Andres Guillermo, Maria Angela, Felipa, Mauricio, Marina, Artemio Alvaro, Israel Jeremias, Santos Toribio, Maria Gregorio
