A loan of $375 helped purchase compost & fertilizers.


Eliseo's story

Eliseo, age 21, is a simple and friendly young man who lives at the home of his parents. What he desires most in life is to work hard so that he can create a better future. As soon as the first rays of sunlight reach the town of Punray (located in the province of Tarma), Eliseo and his loving parents leave their home to go work on their land, which requires an hour-long walk. Their land is quite fertile, which helps them grow potatoes, peas, and corn of good quality. What he enjoys most about his work is planting the land with great care. Eliseo has been farming for two years and considers the most difficult part to be fumigating his land. Going forward, he hopes to buy additional land so that he can increase his crop yield.

This is his first loan with MFP. Eliseo does not want to fall behind on his payments due to a lack of funds, so he saves what he needs to meet his obligations. In his Communal Bank, he is a responsible member who is respected by the others in his group. The loan of 1000 PEN that he requested will be used to buy compost and fertilizers for his crops.
