Miler's story

Miler, 43, lives with Eva and they have three children who are 15, 10 and 3 years old. He owns the house they live in and it’s in Huasahuasi District in Tarma. Since he was a child his parents taught him to work the land. He liked to see how the crops crew and matured. His more than 20 years’ experience in agriculture has brought him many things: the house he now lives in, furniture, appliances as well as his children’s education. Now, he plants corn, potatoes, lima beans and peas on several parcels in his locality. That’s where he spends most of his day since he has to protect his crops from infestations that are currently attacking his plants. Miler needs capital because this month the big pea season starts. “In this season, profits from sales are large,” he comments. He’s grateful for the support in his communal bank because they taught him to continue forward despite difficulties. This is MFP loan #6. He feels good in his “Unión Huanchán” communal bank because the members are mutually supportive and responsible with their payments. Miler will invest the money he’s requesting in the purchase of four bags of pea seeds (at 550 soles each). He will use the rest of the money to buy fertilizer.
