A loan of $575 helped buy cement to fix his home's facade.

Felix's story

Félix is a careful and hard-working man. He is 33 years old and lives in his own house with his wife and 3 children, for whom he wants to provide a good future and education. For the past 24 years, Félix has worked his farm preparing the land to plant cacao plants. He carries out this task with the help of some day laborers; Félix enjoys this work because it is something he learned from his parents at a very young age.

Despite the fact that he has had to face many difficulties, he always comes out ahead because of the care with which he tends to his plants. He takes the harvested crops to sell at the stockpile centers of his locality, where he obtains good earnings for each kilo that he sells.

His current priority is to be able to complete the façade of his home, where he lives with his family; they give him the strength to forge ahead. It is for this reason that he turns to the offices of MFP to request a loan to help carry out his plans. This would be his 1st loan with MFP, and he feels content to be able to count on financial support in order to meet his objectives.

He is a new member of his cooperative bank, and he is grateful for the way his companions have treated him. He will use the 1,500 soles to buy cement and other necessities for fixing his home’s façade.
