Lorenzo
Lorenzo, 42, lives with his wife and 4 children in his own home.

For more than 15 years he has been working in agriculture and with livestock. He got started in this work because he inherited some land from his parents and from his wife’s parents. From then on they have been working the land tirelessly year after year as they follow the schedule for planting and harvesting.

Along with this, Lorenzo has livestock. He has 4 cows in his stable. He milks them for his family’s use, and he sells the rest of the milk. The agricultural work is the only source of income for Lorenzo and his family. This work not only generates economic resources, but it also provides them with basic foods for their home.

This is the second time that Lorenza has asked for a loan with MFP. It is his pleasure to work with his neighbors who form part of his community bank. He will use the loan to buy bags of fertilizer for his crops.

Lorenzo tiene 42 años, vive con su esposa y sus 4 hijos en su propia casa. Desde hace más de 15 años se dedica a las actividades agrícolas y ganaderas, empezó a dedicarse a esta actividad por medio de haber obtenido en herencia los terrenos de sus padres y por de los padres de su esposa. Desde ese entonces, labran la tierra incansablemente año tras año, de acuerdo al calendario de la siembra y la cosecha. Paralelamente a esto, Lorenzo se dedica a la ganadería, ya que tiene 4 vacas en su establo, de ellas extrae la leche para su consumo propio y para venta. Para Lorenzo y su familia dedicarse a las tareas agrícolas es la única fuente de ingresos que poseen porque no solo les genera recursos económicos, sino que también les provee de alimentos básicos para su hogar. Es la segunda vez que Lorenzo está solicitando un préstamo con MFP, y es de su agrado trabajar con sus propios vecinos, los cuales forman parte de su banco comunal. El dinero que ahora requiere lo invertirá en la compra de sacos de abono y fertilizante para sus cultivos.
