A loan of $775 helped to buy organic soil amendments.

Adela's story

Adela, 37, has lived with Jorge and her four children in her mother's house for several years.

Adela has made a living for 12 years growing potatoes, olluco, and oats. Her husband has a furniture shop where he makes the best furniture. In her free time she takes care of her farm animals.

Her jobs are very profitable and they live comfortably without any hardship whatsoever. They don't have any extra money at home either, though, so she wants to buy several head of cattle, especially cows to extract the milk and make different sizes of cheese to sell daily in the stores in her town.

This is her sixth loan with MFP and she's happy about receiving the financial support necessary to get ahead.

Adela will invest the 2000 soles [PEN] in buying organic soil amendments to nourish her fields.
