A loan of $750 helped to buy pea seeds and fertilizer.

Benedicto's story

Benedicto, 41, lives in his own house with his son Elio,12, whom he educates and takes care of at home in the hamlet of Cumutay. 'Brave single parent', is how we define Benedicto, who has been working in farming since a young age. Through the passing of the years he learned all the techniques needed for good production. That is why now he is planting peas and potatoes. What he likes most is to carefully take care of his crops, and after some time to gather all the quality production, and bring it to the wholesale market of his city. What he does not enjoy is that he often works alone, because his son is in school, but he helps as he can.

As an entrepreneur, Benedicto has big plans for the future, and one of them is to plant more to improve his profits. He knows that he will succeed. He already began the business of buying and selling potatoes, which are producing good profits that allow him to invest more in his crops. This is his sixth loan with MFP, and he is very grateful to everyone who made the loan. He is also very satisfied with the performance of his group, which is composed of responsible and caring people. With your support, Benedicto will invest the requested loan to buy bags of pea seeds and natural fertilizers, as he needs to improve his production next season.
