Demetrio's story

Demetrio is 54 years old, married and lives alone with his wife. He has been a farmer for more than 40 years. What he likes most is to plant of pineapple since it is his favorite fruit and it's a product in considerable demand in the markets, but seasons make a product more profitable. In his area, few people are dedicated to the cultivation of pineapple. The difficult thing about this crop is harvesting because of the thorns. This is his first loan with MFP. Demetrio plans to continue investing in the production of pineapple and hopes to acquire another small plot of land.
