Armando
Armando is 36 years old and has lived with his common law wife for the past 13 years. They have 5 children together. Since he was young he has worked in agriculture, working on rented land that is located 35-40 minutes driving distance from his home. On days that cars cannot pass through, he walks 90 or 100 minutes to get to his fields. For Armando, raising both bananas and coffee are both profitable, because the production of the bananas generates income every 15 days, while coffee gives a profit once a year. His coffee crop provides enough earnings that when he divides it out over 12 months, it ends up giving the same profit as his bananas. Because of this, these two crops are indispensable for his fields and he works hard to fertilize them and protect them from harm. Armando is very motivated because he has a wife who is also very hardworking, who supports him in his work. His plans for the future are to alternate planting different crops and to eventually become landowners, so his children can count on having what they need, and to improve their quality of life. Armando is a restless person and likes to joke around with the other members of his community bank. This is his 2nd loan with MFP and he has been responsible with all of his commitments. The loan money will be used to clean his fields, because for each block he is charged 350-400 soles.

Armando tiene 36 años de edad, por más de 13 años vive con la madre de sus 5 hijos. Desde muy joven se dedica a las labores agrícolas en terrenos alquilados ubicados de 35 a 40 minutos de su casa en carro, pero los días que no ingresan los autos, camina de 90 a 100 minutos hasta llegar a su chacra. Para Armando, tanto la siembra de plátanos, como de café, son igual de rentables, porque la producción del primero le genera ingresos cada 15 días, mientras que el otro es una vez al año, pero acumula muy buenas ganancias que al dividirlas entre 12 meses resulta igual de ingresos que los plátanos. Por ello, estos dos cultivos son indispensables en sus chacras y se dedica a abonarlos y quitar las malezas las veces que requiera. Armando se siente muy motivado porque tiene una esposa muy trabajadora que lo apoya en cada uno de sus labores; y sus planes a futuro son de sembrar alternadamente diversos productos, hasta convertirse en latifundistas, para que sus hijos puedan tener y contar con todos los bienes necesarios, en aras de mejorar su calidad de vida. Armando es una persona muy inquieta y bromista con los demás integrantes de su banco comunal, este es su 2do préstamo con MFP donde viene trabajando responsablemente con cada uno de sus obligaciones. El dinero que solicita es para mandar a limpiar cada uno de sus cultivos, que por cada cuadra, cobran entre 350 a 400 soles.
