Edwin is a remarkable man. He is 35 years old and is a single parent. He lives with Ángel, his five year old son in a rented room in the district of Perené – Chanchamayo. Due to incompatibility issues, Edwin separated from the mother of his son, but lives happily by the side of the most precious thing that he has. Ángel is his fortitude and inspiration to seek progress. For that reason he does the hard work in the fields for a living. He has his own parcels of land, on which he cultivate coffee, whose production has been known to negotiate intelligently. Additionally, he will plant pineapples which are starting the seasonal crops.
Also he does the household chores: cooking, cleaning, and caring for his son.
As if that weren’t enough, Edwin works as a security guard for different companies and in the summer he has planned to travel to the city of Lima to guard resort homes of Asia (South of Lima), thanks to his brother who recommended it. One of Edwin’s realizable dreams is to have his own house, and in this way he will give refuge and secure shelter to Ángel. For that he will continue working hard or harder. This would be the 5th loan from MFP that he would obtain thanks to your support. For that he gives his word to be punctual with his monthly payments. With respect to his communal bank, “Alto Yapaz” he feels supported and secure thanks to the joint work that they do. He will invest the money from the loan into the purchase of land of 6 by 10 meters in his community, in order to begin the construction of his own house, which will not cost him more than 1500 soles.
