A loan of $750 helped to buy several sacks of manure.

Juan's story

Juan, 50, has shared his life with Marina for 27 years; they have four children. He and his entire family live together in their own house located in Sanchirio Palomar, San Luis de Shuaro District, Chanchamayo.

Juan is a farmer; he’s been in this line of work for five years. He grows bananas, coffee and peppers on his nine farm parcels that he cares for with much dedication and determination since he knows how difficult it is to care for them. According to him, the peppers take two years to produce fruit once planted. But during harvest time he obtains good results. With the experience he has buyers visit his fields to buy his crops.

A year ago he leased a house in the city of Huancayo where his children are attending a well-known state university; his wife has moved there to take care of them. This new phase impelled him to start working as a bricklayer in his free time because he earns more in this occupation. He hopes thus to reach the objective of moving his children ahead.

This would be MFP loan #2 and he once again commits to make his installment payments. He enjoys being part of the “Palomar al Éxito” communal bank because all its members are responsible, mutually supportive people.

If Juan were to receive your support, he will invest the requested money in the purchase of several sacks of organic manure to spread among his banana and coffee plants which will be harvested in two months.
