Walter's story

27-year-old Walter lives with his 3-year-old son Jair. He lives in his parents' home in the community of Yapaz Bajo, in San Luis de Shuaro district, Chanchamayo. Walter is an exemplary father and protecting his son is his priority. Walter started earning a living by carrying out an activity that he was taught at a very young age (agriculture). He started sowing coffee and bananas on farmland that he inherited from his parents. He has approximately 4 hectares. What he most likes about his work is harvest season because this is when he sees the result of all his hard work. He sells his coffee beans to middlemen in the city of La Merced and makes good profits. He says that he picks his bananas every two weeks and they make him income with which to cover his daily expenses. Right now Walter would like to put together a larger amount of working capital so that he can sow a larger quantity of coffee. This will make him better profits and he will be able to provide his son with what he needs for his education.

This will be Walter's fifth loan from MFP and he hopes to receive your cooperation so that he can achieve his goals. He pledges once more to make his repayments on time. Walter enjoys belonging to his community bank "Palomar al Exito" because all the members are responsible people. With your support, Walter will invest the money he has requested in buying several sacks of organic fertilizer to spread over his coffee crops which he will harvest in April, May and June.
