A loan of $1,100 helped to buy cocoa plants.

Moisés's story

Moisés is 39 years old. He lives with his wife Victoria, which whom he has two school-age children. The live in their own house, which is located in the city of Santa Rosa. He emphasizes that he is a good man who is dedicated to his work. He works his fields every day; he has 4 hectares where he grows cocoa, coffee, and mullein roots.

He has 15 years of experience which has made him an expert, but during harvest times he looks for workers to help him pick the crops and transport them to the gathering center. The cocoa and mullein roots have earned him the best profits.

The problem in his work lies in the fact that he can't combat the insects which harm the plants. But now his biggest priority is to buy new fields and grow his planting so as to increase his yield.

This will be his sixth loan with MFP, and he vouches that he will be reliable with his repayments. He is also grateful for the support on the previous occasions, as thanks to that he has been able to further develop as a farmer.

With the 3,000 Soles that he is requesting, he will buy more cocoa plants that he will then graft, to make good use of the fruit in a short time-frame.
