A loan of $375 helped buy sacks of manure.

Gans's story

Gans, who is 18 years old, lives with Elitza, who is 17 years old. They live in their own home that's built on a foundation of rustic wood and has a corrugated iron roof. The crop fields that Gans has obtained with a lot of effort are the main sustenance that the whole family has. His products are in high demand in the city of San Francisco. This is because his cocoa, coffee, and peanut crops are well-known for being of very good quality, and his products are sold at very good prices. What he likes the most about his work is caring for his crops from the pests that can afflict them, since this can affect his income. He has been doing this activity for 10 years, and he thinks that the most difficult thing is transporting the heavy sacks of his products from the small farm to the drying areas. Later, he will buy more plots of land, because he has thoughts of planting more coffee plants. This is his first credit with MFP. He feels very happy to know that he will have financial support, since this way he will feel sure about buying what he asks for. He is ready to pay the scheduled payments punctually. With the 1,000 nuevos soles, he will buy sacks of manure to fertilize his lands.
