A loan of $325 helped to purchase fertilizers and new plants to cultivate.

Roberto's story

Roberto is 28 years old, single and lives with his mother. He is a young farmer who has dedicated himself to agriculture for the past five years, having started in order to help his mother financially. Within his work as a farmer he enjoys harvesting his products, which are for the most part citrus fruit that are in high demand in the local markets but in particular by the merchants who transport large quantities to Lima. The most difficult part for Roberto is planting and clearing his land but, most of all, fertilizing them. This is his second loan with MFP, and he has not had any problems during his repayment term. Roberto will invest the funds he is requesting into the purchase of fertilizer and new citrus plants to start cultivating new orange groves.
