John's story

John is 21 years old and is very easy-going and hard-working. He lives with his parents and what he wants most is to improve their quality of life. He is very eager to work and goes every day to cultivate his land. He mainly grows potatoes, peas and corn. These products sell quickly in the Tarma market due to their good quality. The thing that he likes most about this work is cultivating the land. He has been doing this for a year now and what he considers most difficult is protecting his land from insects. In the future, he hopes that his production improves since he depends on this for income.

This is his first loan with MFP. He is very happy to have obtained it and will make his payments on time. He is well-liked in his communal bank. With the 1000 nuevos soles (Peruvian currency) that he is requesting he will buy fertilizer for his farms because he wants to increase his production.
