A loan of $550 helped buy dozens of banana plants and rent a piece of land to renew his orange and tangerine plants.

Ever's story

Ever is 24, and he lives with 17 year old Guísela. They have a two year old daughter. They live together in their own house, which is made of rustic material.

For ten years he has liked working with his citrus fruit, avocado, and banana crops. With care and dedication he tries to makes sure that his harvests are productive. Given that this work requires much effort, his wife helps him.

He is employed as a worker on his days off, and he earns S/.20.00 soles a day. These earnings pay for the household expenses, and they provide savings for whatever may happen in the future.

In the future he wishes to buy more farming land, which would generate greater production. Then he would earn more in order to be able to give his daughter a good education.

This is his third loan with MFP. He wants to continue working with his communal bank group because it is made up of very good and responsible people. They share their achievements and disappointments with each other.

He will use the 1,500 soles that he has requested to buy dozens of banana plants. He will also rent a piece of land to renew his orange and tangerine plants.
