Edgar's story

Edgar is 35 years old. He lives with his spouse with whom he has two children who are 10 and 8 years old. Edgar and his united family live in their own house. Edgar is a persistent and able man. These characteristics make him an ideal person for country work. His main activity is farming. Currently, he is in charge of the production of potatoes, ollucos (similar to potato) and ocas (Andean tuber) which upon harvesting he sells satisfactorily in the largest market in his district and on various occasions transports them to the city of Tarma.

He also has approximately two hundred sheep whose meat sales generate considerable income. "With this activity, I'm doing well because I could buy a van and transport my products," he mentions.

This month he pans to plant potatoes. For this, he needs the support of you to continue with his goal of entrepreneurship. This would be his 14th loan with MFP. He is very thankful for all the support during these cycles. He promises to make his payments punctually. He belongs to the "Mirando un futuro mejor" (looking at a better future) community bank. The 2000 soles will be destined for the purchase of bags of potato seed and bags of fertilizer for his next planting.
