A loan of $325 helped to increase his agricultural production.

Juan's story

Juan is 50 years old, and has lived together with his partner for more than 20 years, with whom he has three children. He cultivates plantains and coffee, an activity that he has developed for more than 30 years, and that is very gratifying for him, above all others in the area of cultivation, due to the quality of production that results from his effort. Furthermore, this activity is profitable due to the fact that many traders come to his region demanding large quantities of coffee to bring to the capital, given that it is complicated to go and look for a buyer that will pay a good price that will prove beneficial. This is his first loan with MFP. Juan is ready to increase his production and to be able to bring his products to the markets of the nearby cities. In order to do so he needs 1000 soles in order to increase the number of hectares of crops that he has.
