A loan of $325 helped purchase fertilizer for a farm.

Roberto's story

Roberto is 41 years old. He has a common law wife and six children who are his reason for living. For the past 10 years he has worked on his neighbors' farms because his parents didn't have enough money. That's why he established the goal that his children will not have to work on someone else's farm and has acquired land to cultivate. He has already sown a large part of it and that's where he employs his children. Starting at 7:00 a.m. they should be working on the farm on the weekends. His wife is starting to sell candy in a small store that he has set up in their home. The sad thing is they don't have enough money for their children's education. This is his first loan with MFP. The money requested will be used to buy fertilizer for their land.
