Fidel
Fidel is a happy 26 year old father, currently living with his wife and their only son in his parents' house. He inherited some seasonal farm plots (depending on the rainy season) in his village, but they only produce potatoes and ollucos once a year. Because of this, he decided to plant more potatoes in his wife's town (2 hours away by car) since it is irrigated land and he can generate higher earnings. Right in the middle of the busy spell of his last harvest he suffered a car accident. It was not very grave, but he was still able to finish harvesting the following day. Fidel sells his products next to the city's wholesale market, where, in a span of two hours, he can sell all his produce and return home very happily with his money. Now Fidel trusts that farming his wife's land and his own will greatly improve his economic status and this encourages him to keep putting forth effort at his job as a farmer.


This is his tenth loan with MFP and now he has an even greater desire to prosper and grow through his harvests. For this reason he is turning to a loan and the support of his community bank. He plans to use the money to buy chemicals for his next potato crop.

Fidel es un alegre padre de 26 años, actualmente vive con su pareja y madre de su único hijo, en la casa de sus padres. Él heredó unas chacras temporales (según tiempo de lluvia) en su pueblo, pero sólo produce papas y ollucos una vez al año, por lo tanto decidió sembrar más papa en el pueblo de su esposa (a 2 horas en auto) por ser terrenos de regadío y puede generarse mayores ingresos. Precisamente durante los ajetreos de su última cosecha sufrió un accidente automovilístico, sin lamentables consecuencias; aun así, al día siguiente terminó de cosechar. Fidel comercializa sus productos ubicándose a un costado del mercado mayorista de la ciudad, donde en un lapso de dos horas logra vender todo su producto y se va muy contento, con su dinero, a casa. Ahora Fidel confía que sembrando en las chacras de su esposa y en las suyas, su economía va a mejorar mucho y eso lo entusiasma para seguir esforzándose en su labor como agricultor.
Este es su décimo préstamo con MFP y aun más que en los anteriores, tiene anhelos de prosperar y crecer mediante sus cultivos, por eso recurre a un crédito y al apoyo de su banco comunal. Por lo que el dinero que solicita lo piensa utilizar en la compra de insumos químicos para su próxima siembra de papas.
