Pedro's story

Pedro is 46 years and is known for being a hard worker. He lives in his own house in Huachac with his wife and their 2 children. Two years ago he began to intensify his agricultural efforts, selling cows and bulls at the local markets. He also sells the milk from his dairy cows as well as grows potatoes, corn and other crops which he sells after each harvest at the wholesale market in his city. His wife helps him in all of his efforts, which help support their home. Pedro is planting food for the animals he wants to acquire in the future, once his business is more established. This is his second loan with MFP, and he likes being a part of the communal bank because all its members are very responsible people and work closely together. He commits to making punctual payments. With this loan Pedro will purchase natural fertilizers for his alfafa crops.
