Tomas
Tomás is 23 years old, lives with his mother and his siblings in his parents' house. Two years ago, he independently decided to start farming quinua (a grain) and peas. He knew how to farm because had learned from his parents. His work is much harder during planting and harvesting seasons, but since he was very young he has been cultivating the land - fertilizing his plants and ridding them of possible pests. Previously, he has had to wait patiently for the harvest. In the future, however, Tomás wants to expand his farmland in order to increase production.

This is his fourth loan from MFP. He has a long history as a member of his communal bank and has demonstrated that he is a consistent and responsible worker. The money he is seeking now will be used to purchase sacks of fertilizer for the next time he plants his fields.

Tomás tiene 23 años, vive con su madre y sus hermanos en la casa de sus padres. Desde hace 2 años empezó a dedicarse independientemente a las tareas agrícolas, siembra quinua y arveja. Las habilidades que ahora tiene son debido a que desde niño las aprendió de sus padres. Su trabajo es más intenso durante la época de la siembra y/o cosecha, pues desde muy temprano prepara sus tierras de cultivo, abonando y fertilizando sus plantaciones, además de cuidarlas de posibles plagas. Posteriormente, debe esperar pacientemente el momento de la
Cosecha. Para el futuro, Tomás quiere extender sus terrenos de cultivo para aumentar su producción.

Esta es la cuarta oportunidad en que tiene un crédito con MFP, él es un socio con larga trayectoria en su banco comunal, pues ha demostrado un trabajo constante y responsable. El dinero que ahora solicita lo invertirá en la compra de sacos de abono para su próxima siembra.
