A loan of $600 helped to buy ten sacks of fertilizer.

Loida's story

Loida, 32, is married to Pedro and they have four children who are 12, 9, 7 and 4 years old. They all live in their own house located in a native community in the central jungle. Loida is a responsible woman. She works in agriculture on her own land.

She works every day alongside her husband, Pedro, because she knows that if she works with more constancy, her product will look better and be sold easily. “Coffee beans in this community are healthier because the manure we use is natural,” she comments proudly.

Her main crops are coffee and bananas but sometimes there are seasons when she also grows corn and manioc but this isn’t too frequently. She does well in her businesses but the process isn’t simple, it requires time and dedication.

She has many plans for the future. The most immediate one is to continue with her crops. This month she will start to weed and fertilize the soil and needs your help to do so.

This is MFP loan #2 so she assumes the responsibility of being punctual with her monthly installment payments. She enjoys working with her fellow members because they attained good savings during the first cycle. Loida will be able to buy ten sacks of fertilizer to spread among her coffee and banana plants with the 1,500 soles.
