Milcerio

Milcerio is 46 years old, he is a very sensible and responsible man. He lives happily with his wife, the mother of his 5 children, three of whom are still with them and help him work the fields. He sows and harvests potatoes, daily work that he has been carrying out for the last 30 years. But even before he starts tending to his fields he must feed the his donkey and his mules. They help him transport the large sacks of harvest. By 8a.m. the animals must already be well fed so that they do not feel tired or become hundre during the trip to and from the silos. After having collected the potatoes he and his wife must go through a selection process, and only then will they transport them to the wholesale markets in the city of Tarma. Miclerio loves his work and it is thanks to this work that he obtains money to support his family. In the 30 years that he has been working he has enjoyed abundant harvests, giving him the opportunity to live through times of plenty. He has also seen harvests fall under a sheet of ice and other harvests that were completely spoiled by pests. But these times of hardship have been temporary and they have not impeded his will to keep struggling for the sake of his family. This is the fourth loan with MFP (Kiva Field Partner). In the past he has shown great responsibility in his payments and for this time around he promises to be equally responsible. The others inthe group are wonderful collaborators in the progress of their community bank. The two thousand soles he is requesting will be invested in the purchase of chemical fertilizers for this next harvest.

Milcerio tiene 46 años, es un hombre muy sensible y responsable, vive felizmente con su esposa que es la madre de sus 5 hijos, de los cuales viven con tres de ellos que lo apoyan en los trabajos agrícolas. La siembra y cosecha de papa es la actividad a la que se dedica diariamente desde hace 30 años, pero antes de acudir a su chacra alimenta a los animales que tiene como su burro y sus mulas, los cuales le son muy útiles para transportar los sacos durante la cosecha. Por ello que a las 8.00am sus animales ya deben estar bien alimentados para que no sientan cansancio ni hambre durante la jornada de ida y vuelta a su almacén. Después de haber acumulado las papas, comienza la selección con la ayuda de su esposa, y finalmente los transporta al mercado mayorista de la ciudad de Tarma. Milcerio ama la labor que realiza, puesto que sabe que gracias a ella obtendrá el dinero para sostener a su familia. En los 30 años que lleva en esta actividad ha disfrutado de la abundancia de sus cosechas que le permitieron vivir temporadas de bonaza, como también de impotencia al ver que sus siembras se quedaban bajo el hielo y otras veces los gusanos malograban la totalidad de sus cultivos, pero esas circunstancias sólo han sido pasajeras, pues no han mellado en su ánimo de seguir luchando para mantener a su familia. Este es el cuarto crédito de Milcerio con MFP, durante los anteriores ciclos demostró mucha responsabilidad en sus pagos, y para este ciclo se compromete seguir la misma dinámica, ya que los demás integrantes son muy buenos colaboradores para el progreso de su banco comunal. Los dos mil soles que solicita serán invertidos en la compra de fertilizantes químicos, para sus próximas siembras.
