Javier's story

Javier, age 23, is a young, very happy and hardworking family man. He lives in his own house with wife Gabriela, age 19, and his beloved 2-year-old son, Jhon. They are the primary reason behind all his efforts. Javier has managed to make progress with his crops through arduous work. Every morning he wakes up very early to water and otherwise take care of his crops of cocoa, coffee and coca leaves. He will then sell these crops in the city of San Francisco, as that is where he can get the best price for his products. The thing he likes the best about his work is the ability to work freely in his green fields. He has done this work for 6 years. He considers the most difficult thing to be the obligation to work the land every day, without having much time to do other activities. In the future, he hopes to buy new land to increase his production. This is his first loan with MFP. He knows that this loan will help him a lot in advancing and developing his business. Because of this, he is committed to making all payments on time. He will buy mO. fertilizer for his crops with the three thousand soles (Peruvian currency) he is requesting; he also wants to go into business selling clothing.
