A loan of $400 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Yobana's story

Yobana is 30 years old, is married to Emiliano, aged 43, and has three children. She lives in a home built using good-quality materials, which she built with the help of her husband.

When she reached adulthood, she inherited some plots of land from her grandparents, which she now farms to support her family. She has worked for nearly 12 years, supported by her husband. She explains that she likes her work, because it allows her to play a key role in providing for her family. However, the rainy season is a big hindrance to the normal performance of her work.

Over time, she has noticed that her land requires additional help to optimize yield, which is why she wants to buy bags of organic fertilizer and grow superior crops. In the future, she plans to open a permanent business in the form of a grocery store, in order to increase her earnings in addition to her work in the countryside.

This is her first loan with MFP. She is grateful for the opportunity and promises to make her repayments on time. For this first time, she wants 1,000 soles to buy organic fertilizer and in this way, maximize the quality of her fruit.
