A loan of $375 helped to purchase more fertilizer.

Edwin's story

Edwin, 31 years of age, is a simple and hard-working father. He lives in a house he owns, along with his wife Carlota, and 5 children who are the reason for all the effort he puts forth. Each morning, Edwin takes great care tending to his land in order to make it very fertile. He depends on the quality of his coffee and banana crops, so he can sell everything he grows. What he enjoys most about his work is that he has a great deal of freedom to work his farmland, since he is his own boss. He has been working this way for 10 years, and considers the cleaning of his coffee plantation the most complicated part, which requires a great deal of work. Over time, he hopes to purchase additional acreage to increase his production. This is his third loan with MFP, and he feels capable of paying all his installments. He is one of the most active members of his cooperative, a reason why he is very well-liked and respected. With the thousand soles he is requesting, he will buy fertilizers so that his land is more fertile.
