A loan of $1,100 helped to hire laborers.

Eduardo's story

Eduardo is 31 years old and lives with his partner Janeth. The couple have two children: 13 year-old Rossi and 10 year-old Franklin. They live together in their own home where understanding reigns.

Even as a teenager, Eduardo worked on his parents' land. He has owned his own 4-hectare plot of land for seven years now. His land is planted with cacao and coffee. The key to his success lies in his creativity and his desire to work. His plants are grown using modern technology because he periodically receives training from agronomy engineers. The product that has greatest demand is his cacao because of the quality of the product that he sells. As a result, he makes good money. He normally works alone but during harvest seasons he hires laborers so that he can pick and select his products more quickly.

Eduardo will use the loan he has requested to hire laborers to support him in his harvest and in weeding his plants. His future plan is to continue expanding his production so that he can continue satisfying his customers and thereby improve his living conditions.

This is Eduardo's 11th loan from MFP and he hopes to be able to count on your support once more so that he can carry out his plans. He is prepared to make his repayments punctually as he did with his previous loans. He will use these 3,000 Peruvian soles to hire laborers to support him in his harvests and in weeding his land.
