Roly's story

Roly is 21 and from the district of Samugari. He is a hard-working young man who does not have his own house yet but is working hard toward that end. Roly's main characteristics are "creativity and persistence" and despite his young age he has goals he wants to reach on his own and has decided on agriculture as a means of earning a living. Thanks to a small plot of land his parents gave him he can go grow cocoa and beans to cover his personal expenses. He has been involved in this activity for three years and to date his crops have been good quality. However he does not have the money to hire help for the harvest. This is his second loan through MFP and he is committed to paying it back on time. Roly is requesting 2,000 PEN to hire workers to pull the weeds from among the crops. They will also help at harvest time. He wants to be able to save enough to increase his plantation and improve his income.
