Segundo's story

Segundo, 34, is a hard worker, diligent, supportive, and very friendly. His partner is Jesenia with whom he has two children aged 15 and 3.

His business is buying and selling cattle. He does his work on his own land of 40 acres which gives him the comfort necessary to carry out his work with good results. He bought this land 12 years ago and he currently has 22 animals including males, females, and calves. To grow the grass that he uses as food for the animals, he hires two laborers that he pays 20 PEN a day. In addition, he works as a taxi driver in his own vehicle which he obtained 5 years ago. He considers them both very profitable because they are in great demand among the people in his city. He likes his job now that he has a profitable and sustainable business. He was not able to finish his studies, but he never felt defeated. On the other hand, he has plans to establish a small store and he hopes to achieve it with this opportunity.

This is his 16th loan with MFP; once again he is grateful for the trust given to him in order to grant him the funding he needs to pursue his goals. He is very determined to meet payments as he did with his previous loans. He likes the group that he is a member of; he is one of the oldest members and he knows all of the participating members.

With the amount requested, 2000 PEN, he will invest in the construction of fence and improve some areas of his cattle farm that are in need of repairs.
