Fidencio
Fidencio, a noble and hard working man, is 49. He is separated, and he has three children who live with their mother. He takes care of his mother in his own house. His childhood is marked by working the land. His parents were people of the fields, and as a boy he liked growing potatoes.

God blessed him in his crops, but his marital life is incomprehensible. But, he did not renounce his responsibility as a father.

Fidencio put more effort into his crops, increasing his fields until he had four hectares of potatoes, three of peas, and a smaller amount of corn. During the harvests he had difficulty preparing refreshments for his workers, but now he has decided to pay them more and avoid that worry. Fidencio really loves his farm; he loves it more when the crops bear fruit. Thanks to his fields and his work, he sells his products at the wholesale market in the city of Tarma. With his earnings, he can cover the educational costs of his children. Even though they are far away, he does not want them to do without.

This is his fourth loan with MFP. He is very responsible. When he has the money, he pays ahead of time. He says, “Money is unpleasant, and it is better to kill your debts quickly”. Fidencio is very at home with his colleagues in his community bank. Therefore, he would not like it if someone were to withdraw.

He will use the money he is asking for to buy 30 bags of fertilizers, which he believes will cost approximately 2,900 PEN. With the rest of the money he will buy fungicides for the leaves of his potato and pea plants.

Fidencio tiene 49 años, es un hombre noble y trabajador, está separado y tiene 3 hijos que viven con su ex pareja; él vive al cuidado de su madre en su casa propia. Su infancia está marcada por el labrado de la tierra, ya que sus padres fueron personas del campo y de niño le gustaba cultivar la papa. En sus siembras Dios le bendijo, menciona, pero en su vida conyugal primó la incomprensión, pero no renunció a su responsabilidad como padre. Fidencio se esforzó más en sus cultivos, incrementado sus sembríos hasta llegar a 4 hectáreas de papas, otras 3 de arvejas y en menor cantidad de maíz. Durante las cosechas tenía dificultad para preparar el refrigerio de sus peones, pero ahora ha optado por pagarles más y evitar esa preocupación. Fidencio ama mucho sus chacras, más cuando fructifican, porque gracias a sus tierras y a su trabajo él comercializa sus productos en el mercado de mayoristas de la ciudad de Tarma. Con estas ganancias puede cubrir la educación de sus hijos, aunque estén lejos no quiere que pasen necesidades. Este es su cuarto crédito con MFP, es muy responsable y cuando tiene el dinero paga por adelantado, mencionando “el dinero es ingrato y es mejor matar las deudas pronto”. Fidencio se ha acostumbrado mucho a sus compañeros de banco comunal, por lo que no le gustaría que alguno se vaya a retirar. El dinero que solicita lo piensa invertir en la compra de 30 sacos de fertilizantes, cree que le costará un aproximado de 2900 soles, con el resto comprará fungicidas para las hojas de sus cultivos de papas y arvejas.
