His plans for the future are to buy more land to cultivate because he needs to be able to expand his cacao plantings. This is his sixth loan with MFP. He is committted to keep making his payments. He also thanks his community group for the support that each member has. With the loan he has asked for, he will invest in buying a greater quantity of cacao from other producers with the need of incerasing his income and satisfying his potential customers.
