Nicanor's story

Nicanor is 54 years old, he is married and has 10 children, 5 of whom are still living at home. Since the moment that he married he has been an agriculturer, and his wife has been in charge of shepherding the cows and the bulls that they use to plow the fields. Every Friday, he travels to the city of Tarma where he sells his products. In the photo, Nicanor is demonstrating a toold that is called an "arijo" that is used in the plowing process. He uses it not only for his cultivation but he also is contracted to plow other fields. Thanks his earnings through his products (potatoes and peas) and through his plow he has been able to support and educate his numerous children. He wants to invest in a business or a workshop for each of them so that they will not be farmers like him because he says it's very hard work. Nicanor has always been very attent to providing services to others in the Community Bank. This is his eighth loan with MFP (Kiva Field Partner) and he has been on time with all of his payments. The money requested is to purchase insectides to spray his pea plantation because it is being ruined by mosquitoes.
