Emilio
Emilio is 42 years old and a cheerful hardworking father. He lives in his own home with his wife Sonia, age 41, and their five beloved children for whom he wants to provide a better education. The fields in which he works so hard to plant provide the main source of income for his family. His products are very popular at the wholesale market in Tarma, where he is known for offering high quality goods. Emilio is able to generate favorable sales and obtain a good price. What he enjoys most about his work is caring for his crops and protecting them from pests that can impact his harvest. He has been farming for 25 years and considers the most difficult part to be transporting sacks of potatoes, peas, beans, and oca that are quite heavy and exhausting to carry. Sometime later he hopes to buy additional land so that he can increase his production.


This is his sixth loan with MFP. Emilio knows that these funds will be very beneficial in developing his business. He is one of the happiest members of his Communal Bank and always tries to restore order during the meetings. The loan of 1500 PEN that he requested will be used to buy compost to make his land more fertile.
