Melesio
Melesio, 56, is a single father. His wife recently abandoned him, and she left him with their two youngest children.

He has a motor boat. Together with his brother-in-law he fishes in the Ucayali River. They sell their fish at the port, to resellers, or sometimes they have business orders that need large quantities to fill. He has been doing this for 30 years, and he does well.

Melesio also works cutting down wood-yielding trees. Through both activities he is able to get together enough money to sustain his family.

This is his first loan with MFP. He has observed that working with his community bank is beneficial because all of the members support each other. The loan is to buy fishing materials.

Melesio tiene 56 años, es padre soltero, reciente su esposa lo abandonó y le dejó con sus dos menores hijos. Él tiene un bote motor donde, junto a su cuñado, se dedican a la pesca en el río Ucayali, y venden sus pescados en el puerto, a los revendedores, o a veces tienen pedidos de una empresa que requiere mayores cantidades para procesarlos. En esta actividad ya lleva 30 años y le va muy bien; adicionalmente, Melesio trabaja también en la tala de árboles madereros, y con ambas actividades reúne el dinero necesario para el sostenimiento de su familia. Este es su primer préstamo con MFP y ha notado que trabajar con su banco comunal es muy provechoso, porque entre todos los integrantes se apoyan mutuamente. El dinero que solicita lo invertirá en la compra de materiales para la pesca.
