Gregorio's story

Gregorio is 49 years old, he is a simple hard-working man. He lives in his own home alongside his wife Fidelia who is 50 years old and his youngest son Rogelio who is 24 years old whom he wants to provide a better quality of life to. When he was a kid, Gregorio's parents taught him everything he needed to know about farming. Little by little as time passed on, he became in charge of his parent's land. He now has extensive land to cultivate where he grows coffee and bananas to later sell at market in the city of Pichanaki. The part he likes most about his job is cultivating the land since this activity is what feeds his family. He has been farming for 12 years and considers protection against plagues to be the most difficult. He very much wishes to purchase an automobile so that he can transport his products with it. This is his 8th loan with MFP; he was always been punctual with his payments and hopes to do the same now. He is a very supportive member with his communal bank and his fellow members. With the 2,500 Nuevos Soles he requested, he will purchase more fertilizer to improve his crop.
