A loan of $725 helped to buy several sacks of pea seeds.

Wilker's story

Wilker is 21 years old. He is a hard-working, single man who lives with his parents in the town of San Juan. With a young man's vitality, Wilker doesn't stop working and, in spite of his young age, he has been farming for four years. His main crops are potatoes, peas and beans. After each harvest he sells his produce in the wholesale market in the city of Terma. He also has a business buying and selling potatoes wholesale. Every 15 days he transports them to the country's capital. However, as he would like to energize his sales and improve his profits, Wilker is thinking of acquiring a truck so that he can transport his merchandise more easily.

This is Wilker's second loan from MFP and, as a new member of his community bank, he is grateful for the support he is being offered. He will invest his loan money in buying several sacks of pea seeds and merchandise for his business.
