A loan of $900 helped to purchase fertilizer.

Paulino's story

Paulino is 42 years old. He is a very humble and hard working person. He lives in his own home together with his wife, Hilda, 37 years old, and their 3 beloved children to whom he wishes to provide with a better quality of life. Paulino has cocoa, coffee and coca leaf plantations which he harvests to sell in the city of San Francisco. He has various clients who, knowing the quality of his products, do not hesitate to wait to purchase the lot in wholesale. What he most enjoys about his work is sowing the fields and making them fertile and productive. He has 8 years in the business and the most difficult part of his work has to spray the plantations. He has to spray very carefully so that the chemicals he uses will not damage the plants. In the future he hopes to purchase or rent more land in order to increase his production. This is his sixth loan with MFP (Kiva Field Partner) and he knows that payments need to be made on time if he wishes to access another loan in the future. He is a very responsible member of his community bank, always looking out for the welfare of the group. With the requested fifteen hundred nuevos soles he will purchase more fertilizer to improve his plantations.
