A loan of $975 helped to buy fertilizers.

Flor's story

Flor is 42 years of age, and for the last 26 years has lived with the father of their 6 children, 3 of whom still live at home. She works farming potatoes and peas. At the beginning she was not accustomed to the work, but as the years go by she has come to love her job. Now she is very devoted to her crops, to the size and quality, as these things are important to get a good price at the market. For her next crops she will change to seeds of better quality. Flor is a very shy group member, but she is the first to attend every one of the meetings. This is her eighth loan with MFP and in all this time she has never defaulted. The money she requests will be used to buy chemical fertilizers and bags of seeds of a different quality.
