A loan of $925 helped to invest in cleaning the weeds from his plot of pineapple.


Luis's story

Luis is 48 years old. He is a widower who has 3 children. They live in a rented house located in the district of Pichari. Luis is the most sacrificing father in his neighborhood; every day he does his very best in the fields to be able to give his beloved children a good education. He produces pineapples in Tarancato, where he has a plot of land that is suitable for this fruit, which is so sought after now. Luis is happy with this work, since it generates good earnings for him. In the future, he wants to buy a truck so that he can transport his products to other provinces and sell them at a better price. In his work, he always relies on the support of the people who facilitate the cleaning of the land and the harvesting of his fruits. This is his second loan with MFP, and he has once more made his promise to make his payments very punctually. Luis is happy with the members of his communal bank because they are respectful. With the 2500 PEN, Luis will invest in cleaning the weeds from his plot of pineapple.
