A loan of $400 helped to buy bags of organic fertilizer.

Alicia's story

Alicia, 60 years old, is a hardworking woman. She lives with the company of her husband, now that her children are independent. They live in a house that they built 40 years ago. The land that they own is located in the highlands of the valley, where everyday from the early hours, they go out to cultivate, fertilize, and clean, as the success of their harvest depends greatly on their efforts.

Alicia has 38 years of experience in agriculture. Thanks to her constant work she was able to take care of her children and help them move forward. "That is my pride," she affirms. These days you will find her sowing fields on a small scale, because she desires to continue working in the field, her greatest passion.

She belongs to the communal bank "Manantiales de Ullusca" [Springs of Ullusca] and this is the eighth loan with MFP. She is thankful for the financial support offered, as it helps her to improve her business. For this reason, she promises to be punctual with the payment of her quotas. Alicia will invest the money in the purchase of organic fertilizer to spread among her crops.
