Valentín's story

Valentín is 38 years of age, and is a good man who is friendly and very hard-working. He is married to Edith who is 40 years of age, and together they have two sons named Jorge and Daniel (both are 11 years of age). Valentín works a lot so that he can have a good quality of life alongside his family.

Valentín grows cassava and other regional products in the six hectares of farmland he owns. He plants his crops depending on the season and ensures good produce, as he takes great care with the fertility of his crops’ roots, which make for larger produce with better flavor. He has been working in this business for five years, and is very happy to have the help of his wife, with whom he cultivates his plots of land. He also enjoys his work because it allows him to relax in the afternoons, as he only uses the first half of the day to clean or harvest his land. Valentín has seen his business improve day by day, due to the way in which he carefully looks after his produce. He hopes to continue working a lot, as he plans to improve his production every year.

This is Valentín’s 15th loan from MFP, and he is happy to know that he can get a loan to help him meet his goals. He promises to make his payments on time and to not make a bad impression on the group he belongs to, as they are all very responsible.

He plans to use the requested loan of 3,000 soles to buy fertilizer for his land and various tools for his work.
