A loan of $600 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Evelin's story

Evelin is a hard-working woman. She lives with her mother and her son. She lovingly takes care of them both in her mother's house, where she has lived since she was born.

Since she was a child, Evelin has worked in agriculture, helping her parents. Being an older sister, she was always mindful of the household expenses. This is the reason she only has one son; she knows how difficult it is to raise children. She is currently earning a living from agriculture. She is a simple and hard-working woman. Evelin's experience in planting rice, potatoes, beans and other vegetables, has allowed her to have an additional business in the city of Lima. She travels to Lima every week to sell her harvests, but she must always return to her town to tend to her crops. She is currently working very hard because it is planting season.

This is her third loan with MFP. She is grateful for the economic support they provide her, because it will allow her to continue with her plans to improve her business. She also promises to make her re-payment instalments punctually because she wants to remain in good standing with the association "Yanamarca Unida".

Evelin will invest the money to buy organic fertilizer to nurture her fields.
