A loan of $1,050 helped to buy vegetable seed and chemical products to protect his crops.

Feliciano's story

Feliciano, 65, is married to Eusebia, 57. They have 7 children, 5 of whom still live with them in a rented house.

He has worked the land of his birth for 40 years; something that makes him appreciate what he does very much. He grows corn, potato and all kinds of vegetables on leased lands. His youngest son helps him with the farm chores while his wife prepares the meals so that they can carry on and withstand this work beneath the intense heat of the sun.

The profits that have been obtained have allowed him to meet household expenses as well as pay for the education of his children, who are now independent.

He plans to buy farm lands in the future as well as a house in which to live comfortably.

This is his 3rd loan with MFP. During this time he has learned to value teamwork within his communal group; he enjoys taking part in all the meetings.

He will use the requested 3000 new soles to buy several cans of cauliflower, lettuce, spinach and coriander seed as well as chemical products to protect his crops.
