Glorio
Glorio, 25, is a young man who is a real fighter. He divorced his wife a year ago, and sees his two young children on weekends. He has done agricultural work since he was 8, having grown coffee, bananas, citrus fruits and pineapple on land that he owns. Sometimes he receives help from his relatives, but at harvest time he has to contract labor to speed up the work. He likes to harvest the coffee beans, pulp them, wash them, then select the ones to sell to the wholesalers who know the quality of his crop and who will pay considerable sums. Planting coffee is very profitable, allowing him to purchase his necessities, and to cover his expenses and those of his children. Therefore, for the future he plans to increase his production of this crop.

This is the second time he has taken a loan through MFP, and he is very proud to continue to work with his communal group, with persons he considers to be honest, hard-working and responsible. With the loan he is requesting, he will buy two thousand more coffee plants and sacks of fertilizer to revitalize his plantations.
