Mirson
Mirson is a 46-year-old single father of one older son who has his own family. He lives alone in his own house where his sisters and son sometimes come to visit him or spend a weekend.

Mirson's work consists in the planting of regional crops such as yucca, plantain, tomatoes, cilantro, and more. He also has a few heads of cattle. Every day he gets up very early to do his work such as cultivating his crops, fumigating pests, and extracting fresh milk from his cattle. All of these activities take place on his small farm, located a few kilometres from his house. Mirson has spent more than 15 years doing this work so that his child could be independent. He has a few other plots of land, and sometimes he contracts workers to help him but only during planting and harvest.

He really likes his work because it is always outside and he can use his time in the way he thinks is best. What's more he says that there is nothing better than being independent. He hopes that he can maintain his business and keep working on it a few years more. This will be his 18th loan with MFP, and he is asking for your collaboration so he can realize his plans.

It's going very well with the group. Mirson is a founding member and always pays his quotas on time. He is grateful for the opportunity MFP has given him to grow with his work and hopes he can continue doing it for a long time. With the requested amount, 2500 soles, he will buy regional products from other small farms to sell wholesale in the city, and invest in some grains and fertilizers for his fields.
