Jorge
Jorge is 56 years old and lives in a home he owns with his wife and youngest child. Since his childhood he has been very connected to agicultural work and especially to live-stock farming. For the past five years he has made a living by raising and selling beef cattle. He works with his wife who always looks out for the health of the animals. The health of the animals is important when it comes to pricing and selling the animals. To keep the cattle healthly Jorge takes them out early in the morning to graze where there are abundant and fresh fields and where it is sunny. These areas are very far from his house and take about an hour to walk to. After raising the cattle for various months Jorge selects the animals that he will sell at the livestock market. The money that he makes from selling the animals allow him to provide for his family. Livestock farming is very profitable for Jorge and has less risks than growing crops. He is paid a nice sum for each animal. Because of this Jorge needs to increase the number of animals that he has. This is the third time that he is requesting a loan through MFP. He says that working with his communal bank is a great support for him. With the money that he is requesting he will buy various calves to raise and to sell when they are grown.

Jorge tiene 56 años, vive con su esposa y el menor de sus hijos en su casa propia. Desde su niñez ha estado muy ligado a las tareas agrícolas y ganaderas y desde hace más de 5 años se dedica a la crianza y venta de animales de ganado vacuno, actividad que realiza en compañía de su esposa, quien es la que siempre vela por la buena salud de sus animales, pues de ello depende la cotización para una venta. Para mantener saludable a su ganado los lleva desde muy temprano a lugares donde abundan pastos frescos y un sol radiante, estas zonas son muy distantes de su casa, como a una hora caminando. Después de varios meses de crianza selecciona a aquellos animales que ha de vender en la feria ganadera, con cuya ganancia puede sostener, durante un tiempo prudencial, los gastos familiares. La ganadería es muy rentable para Jorge porque tiene menos riesgos de pérdida que en la agricultura y pagan un buen precio por cada animal que vende, por esta razón quiere aumentar la cantidad de animales que tiene. Esta es la tercera vez que tiene un préstamo con MFP y nota que trabajar con su banco comunal es un buen respaldo cuando lo necesita. Con el dinero que solista comprará varios becerros para criarlos y venderlos cuando sean grandes.
