Marcelino
Marcelino is 33 years old and is a very hardworking man. Thanks to the effort he puts in every day he was able to buy his own home, where he now lives with his wife Carmen, who is 27 years old, and their two children.
He works cultivating cacao, coffe, and coca leaf, which, after harvesting, he sells to local distribution centers who pay good prices per kilogram for his high quality goods. Keeping his land fertile is what he loves most about his job. He has been doing this for 12 years and considers fumigating his fields the toughest part because the chemical byproducts may effect his health. Marcelino is now focused on weeding and fertilizing in order to maintain his crops.
This is his twelfth loan with MFP, and he is happy to receive assistance because he knows the money will be very beneficial to the progress of his work. With the 2,000 nuevos soles he will purchase fertilizer and organic compost to ensure good yields from his crops.
