Emergildo's story

Emergildo is a very dedicated, responsible man. He is 41 years old and lives with his wife Deysi. Together, they are raising their son Nelvis with lots of love and affection. They live in harmony in their own home in the settlement of Patay. He has been going every morning, very early, for the past 10 years to his plot of farmland to plant various products such as peas, potatoes and gladiolus flowers. Being the good husband that he is, a short time ago, he opened a grocery store so that his wife Deysi could have her own business and feel a sense of accomplishment. However, he says, she helps transport every harvest of potatoes, peas and flowers to the wholesale market in Tarma, where they sell their crops. This lovely family's plans are to make improvements to their business and production and support their son's higher education. He works constantly and untiringly for his communal bank "Los Picaflores de Patay" [The Hummingbirds of Patay]. This is his fifth loan with MFP. Emergildo will harvest potatoes very soon and is requesting a loan to purchase several sacks of organic fertilizer and 2 bags of pea seeds.
