A loan of $375 helped to buy sacks of coffee.

Hever's story

Hever is 34 years old and lives with Maribel, who is 28. The couple have four children. They live together in their own home which is located in Nueva Fortaleza community, in Pichari. Hever stands out as an entrepreneurial and talented man. He has always been interested in business, since he was very young. He started working in agriculture, growing and selling coffee and cacao. He made profits and, with this capital, he managed to buy and stockpile more cacao, coffee, turmeric and corn to sell on a larger scale (coffee and cacao being the crops in most demand). The most productive months are April to August. For this reason, he will only stockpile coffee, in small quantities.

Hever is requesting a loan in order to increase his capital so that he doesn't have to stop selling. One thing that proves detrimental to his business is delays in receiving payment as his crops are mainly sold abroad.

This will be Hever's first loan from MFP and he pledges to make his repayments on time. He will use the 1,000 soles that he is requesting to buy more coffee.
