A loan of $325 helped buy seeds and fertilizers for farming business.


Joel's story

Joel is 33 years old and the father of three children. He lives with his partner who is hugely helpful to him, above all on their farm. Joel grows maize and rice and raises livestock. He's been doing this difficult work since he was 3 years old. The thing that pleases him most is taking good care of his crops and animals since a good appearance might fetch a better price. And since his products, once in the market, are in much demand by his customers, he's right to take care. This is Joel's second MFP loan, having been responsible in repaying the first loan. He will use the funds to buy seeds and fertilizers (guano and urea) so that his products grow strongly.
