Dionisio's story

41-year-old Dionisio is married to 39-year-old Delfina. As the fruit of their love, they have five beautiful children and they live together in Pichari district. When he was very young, Dionisio started helping his parents with their farming. He had a goal of owning his own business (a store) but needed capital to set one up. For this reason, he continued working in the family's traditional business. He grows and produces cacao and stevia which give him good financial results. However, he needs to work more in order to make more money so that he can set up a grocery store for his wife to run. In general, Dionisio works with the help of farm laborers who help him to pick his crops so that he can sell them in Pichari district.

This will be Dionisio's second loan from MFP. He pledges once more to make his repayments punctually. He will use his 1,500 soles to buy fertilizers for his cacao fields.
