Edwin
Edwin is 24 years old and a native of Ayacucho. He lives separately from his partner and they have a 6-year-old daughter named Yohalibet. He is a responsible parent and does not neglect his duties as a father, paying monthly support. He has his own house which is half-built in the community of Sampantuari Alta, located in the District of Quimbiri. Edwin is a farmer and his parents taught him the trade when he was very young. Since then, he has worked his own lands for the past six years where he grows the following products: cacao plants, coffee, and coca leaves. During the harvest, he has the help of workers. He knows very well that the money he earns is thanks to the good fruit production, which is why he sells them in the cities of San Francisco and Quimbiri where they pay him higher prices for the quality of his coffee beans, cacao, and coca leaves. What he likes most about his work is the harvest, as he feels as though the months of hard work pay off in the quality of his fruits. The loan requested is for the purchase of wood and corrugating roofing, as he plans to build his home using rustic materials. He considers the most difficult part to be transporting his products from the farm to the dryers, located two hours away on foot. In the future, he hopes to buy new lands to increase his production. This is his first loan with MFP and he says that the loan will help him greatly to progress with his work. He feels grateful to the lending institution for granting him the loan. With the 1,500 Peruvian Nuevos Soles (PEN) requested, he will purchase wood and corrugated roofing to build his house.
