A loan of $650 helped purchase of fertilizers.


Valentin's story

Valentin is 40 years old, and he has been married since the age of 18 to the mother of his 6 children. In the picture, we see him in on the way to his plot of land, holding his pick, a tool which he uses to work in his field, to which he feels very grateful since every year that he has planted it has produced very good crops, making it a very profitable pursuit.

Valentin has worked in agriculture since he was a child. His father taught him how to responsibly work with each crop, and now, with the help of his wife and children, he feels a sense of dignity from his work. As a consequence, he treats each plant with affection and care until they are ready for harvest, at which point he takes them to sell in the city of Tarma. Valentin would very much like to buy a house in the city to ensure the well-being and tranquility of his children, and in this way improve his quality of life. This will be his fourth loan from MFP, and in all this time he has been very responsible with each one of his scheduled payments. The money that he is soliciting is for the purchase of chemical fertilizers for his potato patch.
