Fredy's story

Fredy is 23 years old, has a partner and 2 year old daughter, and lives in the home of his parents. 5 years ago he used to work in Lima – he came to Pichanaki for a visit, fell in love, and stayed. One year ago he began to plant a banana farm, he still needs one year, more or less, until he can begin to harvest. Meanwhile he is building his home with the goal of opening a grocery store and of course continue with agriculture, because when he begins harvesting things will go well for him as bananas are harvested every 15 days. Today he doesn’t yet have any difficulties on the farm, but he has many dreams of growing his business. This is his first loan with MFP. The money will be invested in his crops in addition he will buy merchandise for his store, which he is still in the process of constructing.
