A loan of $1,125 helped to hire labourers.

Mariano's story

Mariano is 60 years old and he is a widower. He has 6 children, of whom only 2 live with him in their own house located in the district of Pichari. Mariano is a farmer. He has grown crops such as cocoa and coffee for the last 40 years in his agricultural plot. After his wife passed away he had to be strong and recover, committing himself to his job. Presently he lives happily, cultivating through hired labourers who aid in the extraction of the products.

In the future he hopes to open a shop so that he can leave his agricultural work as he isn't getting any younger. This way he can leave his children to continue with this work. This will be his second loan with MFP and he is committed to paying his quotas punctually. With the 3,000 PEN he will hire labourers to farm his agricultural land.
