Roberto's story

Roberto is 47 years old. He is a hard-working and very honest man. He lives together with his partner, Mildre, who has three children, and he raises them as his own children. He lives together with them in his own house, and he wants to give them all the best and a good education, so that they will be prepared for the future. Roberto's work is growing local crops. He takes charge of planting and harvesting on his farm, where he goes out every day to look at his plantings, to care for them, cultivate them and water them. He believes that to have a good harvest, one must put a lot of care into the crops. Recently he also started a business of his own. He works alone, and on some occasions he will contract other people to help him with the planting and harvesting, so that he can have all of his products and his orders on time. He has been doing this work for more than 20 years.

He loves everything he does, and in this case where he is getting started, it is no exception, because he enjoys being out in nature, and he doesn't get tired of taking the yuca, plantains, hot peppers, bell peppers and the other products he grows on his farm to sell at the market. In the future, he wants to plant another kind of pepper to vary his production and have more customers. This will be loan number 13 for him with the MFP institution, and thus he is asking for your support so that he can make his plans a reality. At the same time, he is committed once more to fulfilling his payment schedule, as with his previous loans. He also likes being part of his communal bank, since all of its members are very responsible people with a sense of solidarity.

With the amount he is requesting, 2000 soles, he will stock the little store he has in his home, so he will buy products and grains, as well as seeds to plant on his farm.
