Lorenzo's story

Lorenzo, 62, is separated from the mother of his two children. He lives in his own house. Since he was very young he has grown oranges, coffee, and bananas. Of all of his crops, the most profitable has been coffee. There were times when the majority of the farmers did not harvest good coffee, but he did. Therefore, he was able to sell it at a very good price. These earnings served him to buy his land and build a house in the city of Lima. However, upon separating from his wife, he returned to his rural house in his village. He concentrated his efforts on his coffee crops. Even though he is, at times, not very strong, Lorenzo has a great desire to continue growing his products. He has the help of some workers. This way he is able to pay his expenses and live a peaceful life. This is his first loan with MFP. He is very grateful to all of the members of his communal bank for their support and the confidence they have in him. He repeats his promise to be punctual with his payments. The money he is asking for is to by fertilizers to fertilize his coffee crops.
