Olin's story

21 year old Olin is a good and hardworking man. He is married to 19 year old Yeny, and the result of their great love, Oliver, was born 3 months ago. The three live in a rented house in the Peruvian jungle (Comunidad Nativa Centro Punpuriani). every morning, in the first hours of the day, he goes to work his land, where he grows bananas and yucca. He planted his land two years ago with great care and effort. They will soon start harvesting and then sell the produce to buyers who come to the community all the time. What he likes most about farming is to see that his efforts have good results, and even though he has been in farming for only a short time, Olin is doing very well. He already has 3 more blocks of land ready to be planted, where he will sow coffee and very soon he will build a house for his wife and son. This is his first loan from MFP and he is happy to be part of the community bank as it gives him the opportunity to grow and invest. He will use the loan to buy fertilizer for the three blocks of land that he is planting.
