Oscas's story

Oscas is 20 years old. He is a single, upbeat, and enthusiastic young man who wants to get ahead. He lives at home with his parents, who help him so that he can keep studying. He puts a lot of effort into getting ahead, but he also has to work at his parents' small farm to be able to cover his educational expenses. He has been helping his parents with their crops of cacao and coffee for 10 years now. What he likes most is going to their fields to work knowing that he is becoming very knowledgeable about the plants and that with the help of their crops he can get an education without stress. What he finds most difficult is that sometimes he has to study and work at the same time, but even so he does not lose hope of moving forward. With this loan he will be able to pay for his educational expenses and move forward with rigorous determination. This will be his first loan with MFP and he knows this money will benefit his future greatly. He is happy to belong to his communal bank's group of members. With the 1,000 nuevos soles he will be able to pay his educational expenses.
