Cesar's story

César is 40 years old and lives with Irma, his partner with whom he has two children who are 7 and 19 years old. This family lives in a rustic house which he built himself in an agricultural annex. César is a man who takes great pains in all the work that he does. The agriculture and livestock are his main labors. On his own land he grows several varieties of peas, also gladiolus flowers, carrots, lettuce, spinach, potatoes, broad beans, corn, etc. "This month I have planted peas and gladiolus because when I harvest them the prices will be good," he says. Within two months he will begin the season of large planting, when he has to think about planting potatoes and peas. He has many plans. The inclemency of the weather has been his worst adversary, situations that he has learned how to control with many years of experience.

Among his next goals he has planed to fertilize his potato, peas, and gladiolus crops. This is why he asks for your help. This is his third loan with MFP, an entity to which he feels grateful for it having allowed him to obtain stable finances and wishes for progress, together with his communal bank "Cochayoc Centro". He promises to be make his monthly repayments on time. He will invest the 2,000 soles in the purchasing several bags of organic fertilizer for his gladiolus flowers and pea crops.
