Juan
Juan is a gentleman without limitations. He is 53 years old and lives in his own home with his lifelong companion, his wife Lucia who is 54. Unfortunately, this happy couple was not able to have children.


Juan’s farmland is located five kilometers outside of the city, where he plants potatoes with the help of his wife. At the same they raise cattle, which they sell live or as meat. Of all his agricultural activities, Juan enjoys taking care of the cattle the most because he likes watching them indulge themselves in his pastures full of grass. Juan remembers that he was not any good at farming when he got married. Over time, after he bought a house, developed his farm, and started raising animals, he got to the point where he could start living comfortably. After gaining a few years of experience, he decided he wanted to plant more crops and acquire more animals.


Juan is receiving his fourth loan from MFP and, as always, promises to make his payments on time because he believes his word is more important than the documents involved. In addition, he enjoys working with his Communal Bank and is very active. With the money he requested, Juan intends to buy two heads of cattle of good breed. He will fatten and sell them for a profit, along with his crops. Each animal is valued at approximately 700 soles, but he will go ahead and request a loan of 1500 soles.

Juan es un hombre sin limitaciones, tiene 53 años, vive en su casa propia con la compañera de toda su vida – su esposa Lucía de 54 años. Está feliz pareja lamentablemente no pudo tener hijos.

A 5 kilómetros de la ciudad están ubicados los terrenos agrícolas de Juan, donde siembra papa con la ayuda de su esposa. Paralelamente se dedica a la crianza de ganado que vende vivo o su carne. Lo que más le gusta de sus actividades es cuidar a sus toros porque los ve disfrutar de los campos llenos de pasto. Él recuerda que cuando se casó no tenía ningún bien, pero poco a poco obtuvo sus chacras, su casa, los animales que cría, permitiéndose tener una vida cómoda.
Por eso con los años de experiencia que tiene, para adelante desea sembrar en mayor cantidad para obtener mejores cosechas y comprar más animales.

Este es el cuarto préstamo que tiene con MFP y, como siempre, se compromete a ser puntual en cada pago porque considera que su palabra es más importante que los documentos de por medio. Por otro lado, también le gusta trabajar en su banco comunal ya que es muy activo. Con el dinero solicitado tiene pensado comprar dos cabezas de ganado de raza, ensebarlos y revenderlos para obtener utilidades adicionales a la de sus cosechas. Cada animal está valorizado en 700 nuevos soles, por lo que necesita mil quinientos.
