Freddy's story

Freddy is 34 years old and lives with Yovana, age 30. They have 2 children together. They own their home which is located in the Llochegua district. When you are doing something that satisfies you and that you like, it is good to pursue it as a career, and that is what Freddy is doing. He tells us that he used to be a driver out of economic necessity. However, he didn't feel very satisfied, so he left that job to cultivate cacao and coffee. He has been doing this work for 7 years and earns good money thanks to his tireless efforts and continuous dedication. He usually works with the support of his dear wife, but during the harvest and maintenance periods he needs laborers who help speed up the work. Freddy is happy with this job as it has allowed him to buy a home. This is his second loan with MFP. He promises to make his payments on time. With the 3000 new soles he will contract laborers to help him fertilize and clean up his fields.
