Lorenzo is 47 years old, is married and lives with his four children. He is a very hard-worker, and works cultivating an orange grove, an activity which he has practiced for 30 years ever since he married. He enjoys his work for the contact with nature, and also because oranges sell very well in the markets and are valued within his community. The challenge is to manage their cultivation, as during the flowering he has to care for the fruit of all the trees and for this he needs fertilizer.

Lorenzo is in his fourth loan cycle from MFP, and has not had any problems in making his repayments to date.

With the loan he is seeking he will acquire traps for the insects that threaten to destroy the fruit that he has worked so hard to cultivate. These traps will cost S/. 1000.

Es un hombre muy trabajador dedicado al cultivo de naranjales, lo cual es una actividad que practica por 30 años, desde que se casó, labor que le agrada realizar por el contacto con la naturaleza, además las naranjas son frutas muy vendidas en los mercados e infaltables dentro de su comunidad. Lo difícil es poder ocuparse de su producción, ya que durante el florecimiento tiene que cuidar los frutos de todo árbol y para ello necesita abonos. Lorenzo va en su cuarto préstamo con MFP, y hasta hoy no ha tenido problemas en realizar sus pagos correspondientes. Con el dinero que solicita adquirirá trampas para insectos que amenazan con destruir los frutos que con tanto esfuerzo logra obtener.
