Prudencio's story

Prudencio, 68, is a responsible and hardworking man. He lives with his spouse in his own home which he was able to build with a lot of effort a number of years ago.

His business is agriculture; specifically he has made his living in the production of cassava for 6 years. He has a 30 acre plot of land that he works on with help from his four workers that he hires depending on the amount of land that needs to be harvested or worked on. Previously, he would plant vegetables and other products, but they did not make good profits so he decided to make a change and now he does very well. He has a location in the market where he sells the cassava that he harvests. He feels happy with his job as he sees it as a very profitable business for now and it is what he has always done and the experience in the field has helped him a lot. In seeing the progress that he has made, he has chosen to expand his business by increasing the amount he currently sows.

This is his first loan with MFP, he is grateful for all of the people that trust in him to have his loan that will help him increase his earnings at work. He knows that he must be very responsible and above all, punctual. With the amount requested, 1,000 PEN, he will buy cassava cuttings and fertilizers to increase the size of his crop and improve production.
