Ruben
Ruben is 32 years old, single and lives in his own house. He wants to succeed. Since he was a young child, his parents have taught him to work on the farm. Now he is a farmworker and he has been working on his own land for the past fifteen years. On his land he grows a variety of crops, such as cacao. During the harvest her needs the support of contract workers in order to pick the fruit and the coca leaves. What he likes the most about his work is the harvest. This is how he is rewarded for the good quality of his fruit. The most difficult part of his work is transporting his fruit from the farm to the gathering centers, which are located in his area. This is the place that offers the best price for his products. In the future he would like to buy more land in order to increase his plantings and also grow coffee plants. This is his second loan with MFP. He feels that this money helps him greatly with his work. He is grateful to the Prisma Institution for offering him this loan. With the 2,000 new soles, he will hire workers to help him with cutting down the weeds and he will buy seeds to plant on his land.
