A loan of $550 helped to purchase bags of organic fertilizer.

Julian's story

Julián, 48, is a happy and hard-working man. He lives in his own house with his wife Mauricia, 40, and their 4 beloved children to whom he wants to offer a better quality of life. The farm lands that Julian has put so much effort into getting are the principal means of support for his whole family.

His products are very highly sought after in the city of San Francisco, since it is well-known that his harvests of cacao, pineapple and citrus fruit are of good quality. What he likes best about his work is harvesting the fruit because he feels that the quality of his fruit makes up for the months of hard work. He has done this work for 22 years and says the hardest part is transporting the bags full of his harvest because they are very heavy. In the future he hopes to add more pineapple plants since he has enough space to grow them.

This is his fifth loan with MFP, and he knows that it will be very helpful for the development of his work. He is a very good-natured and jovial member of his communal bank. With the requested loan he will purchase bags of manure to fertilize his lands and make them very productive.
