Bisel's story

Bisel for 41 years old, lives with Betty, with whom he has 6 children. They live in a rustic home located in a native community in the central jungle.

Bisel makes a living from agriculture; produces coffee, annatto, oranges, and bananas in 3 lots of land that their locality gave them.

"Thanks to the banana, we can cover the daily expenses. We reap 70 kilos a week, which we sell at 80 cents each," says, affirming the profitability of this product. The coffee and the annatto are the fruits that give him more satisfaction. This is why strives much in their care and harvest them once a year.

When he has taken care of his crops, he works as a laborer on other plots. Thanks to this coordinated work, he can maintain his large family by providing the basic services. Because he likes the work of the field, now, he wants to acquire land for other crops to multiply his production but before he plans to fertilize his crops for next year's harvest.

This is his first loan with MFP. He gives his word that he will pay punctually all his payments. He belongs to the communal bank "Los Productores Inchatingari", and he likes to work with serious and responsible people.

With the money will buy organic fertilizer for his crops of annatto and coffee.
