A loan of $375 helped purchase compost and fertilizers for his coffee crop.


Cesar's story

César is 24 years old and is a hardworking single man who lives with his parents and five siblings. The family lives in their own house located in the native community of Nagazu in the central Peruvian jungle. About three years ago, this ambitious young man started his own business and is helping his family get ahead. With the land he inherited from his parents, he began to cultivate coffee. He fertilizes, cultivates, and cares for his crop every day. After each harvest, he brings the coffee to the agricultural association in his town, which sells it at a better price. César has other dreams that work in parallel with his crops. Since he studies agriculture at a well-known school, he wants to complete degree and advise the residents of his community and achieve the excellence that he is looking for. This is his fifth credit with MFP and he thanks all the members of his community bank because they support each other and help each other get ahead. With this loan, he wants to purchase compost and natural fertilizers for his coffee crop.
