Feliciano's story

Feliciano is 67 years old and is married to Eusebia, with whom he has three daughters, but he only lives with the youngest one who is 18. They live together in their own home in an agricultural district. For the last 20 years, Feliciano has worked in agriculture. Now he has his own lands in various plots, ones that he obtained thanks to his hard work over more than 40 years. He grows potatoes, peas, lima beans, lettuce, spinach, carrots and more vegetables. "The planting of vegetables is profitable, each basket of spinach sells for 120 soles," he mentioned.

At his age, although he continues working his land, even though it is very hard work, he sometimes contracts with operating personnel to accelerate the work. Moreover, he says that agriculture needs a lot of investment, especially in the purchase of fertilizers, seeds, and payment for workers. Because of this he is requesting your help to be able to buy bags of organic fertilizers, now that a month has passed since he planted potatoes and peas that need fertilizers. This is his 6th loan with MFP. He feels content with the support that it has brought him over time. He gives his word that he will be punctual with his monthly payments. WIth this money he will buy 30 sacks of organic fertilizers for his crops of potatoes and peas that he thinks he will harvest in December.
