Johnatan's story

27-year-old Johnatan is a responsible man. Ever since he was born, he has lived with his mother Elena in a house she owns. He's a driven young man who recently completed his studies for a technical career in agronomy. Ever since then he has gotten four years' worth of experience in growing high quality corn on his own plots of land. He inherited these plots from his mother, whom he loves very much. Thanks to his knowledge he succeeded in earning good profits, and now he wishes to expand his knowledge through a college education, which is his goal. For that purpose he started a business providing carpentry and infrastructure building services for the public and private sectors. He earns very good profits in this business, and for that reason he's considering hiring professionals in order to increase his earnings and get more customers. However, he doesn't neglect what he loves most, which is agriculture. This is his third loan with MFP. This entire time he has proven to be punctual and responsible, and above all he enjoys being a member of his communal bank which is comprised of supportive people with an enterprising spirit. Johnatan will use the money he requested to purchase organic compost to spread amidst his field.
