Demetrio
42-year-old Demetrio is a hard-working man. He lives in the company of his wife, with whom he has four children they care for in the house they acquired in their community 24 years ago. Since he was very young he has made a living in agriculture; his family have been peasants for many generations. He has farming land in Chuqui and Matará, where he was born. There he plants corn, beans, and potatoes of every variety. When the planting season begins he spends the day immersed in the field and nature, preparing the earth for the seed, caring for the growth of the food, and providing a lot of love.

He has more than 20 years of experience in the food business. Thanks to this he has a little house with his wife 25 minutes from the nearby city where he sells and makes his earnings, although he says that during times of plenty he sells his harvest in the city of Huancayo where he gets more profit. Now he wants to continue improving his plants because thanks to the organic fertilizer that he buys he can produce quality food.

This is his second loan with MFP; with this new opportunity he promises to be on time with his repayments since the financial support that he receives helps him to put new energy into his crops and keep them nourished. Demetrio will use the money to buy organic fertilizer to distribute in his next corn planting. He says that he has already prepared the land for planting.
