Heraclides
Heraclides is 54 years old, he is a simple hard-working man. He lives in his own house and what he wishes for the most is to age peacefully. Every morning Heraclides works hard to cultivate his lands and leave them very fertile especially since he knows that the quality of his pineapples, coffee, and bananas will depend on it. He will later take his harvest to the city of La Merced to sell at market.
What he likes most about his job is the freedom he has to work his lands. He has been doing it for 35 years and considers the cleaning of his coffee plantations the most difficult. With time, he wishes to purchase new land in order to increase production.
This is his third loan with MFP and he feels capable of paying back all of his quotas. He is one of the most active members of the communal bank which is why he is so respected and loved. With the 1,500 peruvian neuvo soles (550 USD) he is requesting, he will purchase more fertilizer to make his land even more fertile.
