Luis
Luis is a Young entrepreneur of 24. He is also the father of a four year old son and lives in a rented house. He hopes to succeed in agriculture and regularly increases his crops of coffee, squash, hot peppers, and plantains. This is why he gets up at four in the morning to work his squash fields so he can harvest them in three months time. In the meantime, he collects plantains on Thursdays since he has to send them to the fruit market in Lima. There he sells them for 10 or 11 soles a box which earns him a good income. Luis enjoys his agricultural work because it’s work he has done all his life, although lately he has been leaning toward business. His dream is to be a great vender.

This is his third loan with MFP and he has proved himself an excellent president of his communal bank. He is well regarded by his fellow bank members. Luis plans to buy fungicides for his squash fields and wooden boxes to transport his plantains in.

Con las miras de triunfar mediante sus cultivos agrícolas, viene incrementado cada vez más sus siembras de café, cayhua, rocoto y plátanos. Por tal motivo se levanta a las 4 de la mañana para trabajar las cayhuas, para que pueda cosecharlas en tres meses. Mientras que los jueves, es el día de la recolección de plátanos, debido a que el viernes los envía al mercado de frutas de la ciudad de Lima, donde los vende por caja a 10 ú 11 soles, permitiéndole así acumular muy buenas ganancias. A Luis le gustan sus labores agrícolas, por ser la actividad que realizó desde su infancia; aunque últimamente se siente inclinado por el comercio, pues su anhelo es convertirse en un próspero comerciante.
Este es su tercer préstamo con MFP y durante estos periodos ha demostrado ser un excelente presidente de su banco comunal, contando con el aprecio de todos sus compañeros. Con el dinero que ahora solicita comprará funguicidas para su chacra de cayhuas, asimismo adquirirá javas (cajas de madera) vacías para el transporte de sus plátanos.
