Hugo
Hugo, 35, is a charismatic man who lives with is wife, Karina, 25 and their three children: Jelcy, 13, Nicole, 11, and Paola, 3. They live in their own, cozy house located in the Peruvian central jungle. From a very early age he has grown coffee on his lands. Coffee grows abundantly in this part of Perú. He learned how to cultivate coffee while very young and he worked hard to implement improved agricultural practices on his farmlands because he has a strong desire to do well in life. Every day he awakens with the goal in mind to provide his children with a better quality of life. As he himself tells us: "in the beginning I didn't enjoy farming much but economic necessity forced me to work happily, most of all for my children." This is how Hugo makes the most of this activity and earns good financial rewards from it. For the future, Hugo would like plant more since the coffee growing season can provide increased income thus offering the best for his family. This is his first loan with MFP and he pledges to repay punctually because he knows that trust is rewarded with trust. On the other hand, he is committed to his communal bank, which is made up of working people like him. With the requested funds he will buy coffee seedlings and natural fertilizer to improve his crop yield.

Hugo es un carismático hombre de 35 años, vive con su esposa (Karina), de 25 años, y con sus 3 menores hijos: Jelcy de 13, Nicole de 11 y Paola de 3 años. Ellos viven en su acogedora casa propia ubicada en la selva central peruana.

Desde muy joven cultiva café y plátanos en sus tierras, estos son los frutos que brinda la naturaleza en abundancia por esta parte del Perú Hugo aprendió desde muy pequeño y se esforzó por mejorar la técnica agrícola para ponerla en práctica en sus chacras, pues tiene muchos deseos de progresar en la vida.
Cada día despierta con la idea de mejorar para brindarles una buena calidad de vida a sus pequeños, como él mismo comenta: “al principio no me gustaba la agricultura, pero la necesidad económica hizo que trabaje con gusto, sobretodo por mis hijos”; es así como Hugo aprovecha al máximo esta actividad y obtiene muy buenas ganancias económicas.
Para el futuro le gustaría sembrar en mayor cantidad, ya que en la temporada de café puede aumentar sus ganancias y así ofrecer lo mejor a su familia.

Es el primer préstamo que tiene con MFP y se compromete a ser puntual con cada pago, pues sabe que la confianza se devuelve con confianza. Por otro lado, está muy comprometido con su banco comunal compuesto por personas trabajadoras como él. Con el dinero que solicita comprará abono y plantas de café para mejorar la cosecha futura.
