A loan of $375 helped to buy compost, fertilizer and fungicide.

Alejandro's story

Alejandro is 39 years old and is a very hardworking man. He lives with his wife and five children in the house that they bought 15 years ago when they got married.

Since that time, he has been cultivating coffee plants. He does this work with the help of his wife and children, who endeavor to obtain a good harvest. Thanks to these harvests, they are able to meet all of their family expenses. His wholesale customers pay good prices for every kilogram of his coffee, since it is of very good quality. Thus he has been able to invest in more coffee plants and also has been able to invest in the education of his children.

This is his third loan with MFP, and he is grateful for this support that allows him to continue with his plans for his work. He is glad to be a member of his communal bank and participates in the meetings and activities. With the 1,000 nuevos soles from this loan, he will buy compost, fertilizer and fungicide for the maintenance of his coffee plants.
