Feliciano's story

65-year-old Feliciano is a very good and cheerful man. He is married to Eusebia. They have 7 children and live in their own home in the town of Jacahuasi. He happily affirms that all of his children are responsible and that three of them are professionals, “that’s why I couldn’t buy my land” he mentioned. However, he is gathering capital to buy land and to be able to cultivate a greater quantity of vegetables, and in this way make a bigger profit. He has worked in agriculture for 40 years already and is grateful to God, because in all those years the harvests were good. He sells the spinach and the carrots that he grows in the city market and also in the capital. Being able to travel is what he likes most about his work. It is his first loan with MFP and he is happy to be able to belong to the most-respected entity in his town. With the loan that he is seeking, he will buy organic fertilizer for his vegetable plantations and will also hire agricultural workers to help him plow the fields before sowing them.
