Evaristo
Evaristo, 42, is a tenacious, hard-working man with a strong drive to get ahead. He and his partner, Miriam, a merchant, have two children, 17- and 12-years old, respectively.
Evaristo grows cacao for a living. He owns a farm where he grows and harvests his crop. He stores it and when he has enough to sell, takes it to the capital where he can get the best price for it. He has operated the business for 10 years. He relies on temporary day laborers to help him plant and care for the farm. He supplements his income with construction work, work that he does in his spare time both to earn extra money and to build his skills and knowledge. The knowledge he's gained has led, he says, to ever more work and he's now planning to join a training workshop so that he can further improve his skills.

This is his second MFP loan and he says that he is grateful for your help because the loan will help him meet his goals. He adds that he likes working with the members of his community bank because its members are supportive. He hopes to go on working with them.
Evaristo will use part of this 1000 new soles loan to pay for labor and sacks of organic manure for his farming business and the rest to buy tools for his construction work.
