Toribio
Toribio is 58 and divorced but he has two beautiful daughters. He lives in his own house located in Nueva Alianza community, in Pichari. He is a farmer, who learned from his parents at a very young age. They taught him how to fertilize and care for the land. However, at his current age, he can not put forth the same physical effort as before and for that reason he opted to start a business and sell groceries: thus he could continue to make a profit without jeopardizing his health. His decision to start a business of this kind is because the few existing stores are too far from his township and in this way he can make it easier for his neighbors to meet their needs.

Even so, Toribio wants to continue working simultaneously as a farmer. Consequently he wants to expand his planting of cacao, because it is a product that is in higher demand and generates strong returns. He enjoys the work because he feels attracted to nature.

This will be his first loan with MFP and he is committed to making his payments on time. With the 3,000 soles he is requesting he will contract laborers to help him trim and weed between his cacao plants.
