A loan of $575 helped to buy organic fertilizer for his plants.


Sergio's story

Sergio is 23 years old, and his partner, Gimena, is 21 years old. They have a child of three years and currently live together in the house of one of Sergio's aunt and uncle. Sergio grows coffee, cacao, and fruits. He has been doing this work for over two years, on his own farming land. Normally Sergio works alone, but during the harvest season he relies on the help of day laborer friends who assist in quickly picking the fruits for each harvest. For him, the work is easy because--thanks to the great care with which he tends his crop--he is able to obtain a high level of quality. He does not like to use a lot of chemicals, however, because he then runs the risk of contamination. For this reason he prefers to use natural fertilizer. This is Sergio's second loan with MFP. Once again he is grateful for the help that has been provided so that he can continue achieving his work goal. This loan of 1,500 nuevos soles will help him to buy organic fertilizer for his plants.
