A loan of $500 helped to purchase traps for the insects which threaten his crop.

Lorenzo's story

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.
