Jhonatan
The responsibility of having to look after his parents pushed him to get into agriculture, which he did not like because of the strenuous work involved. However, he had not realize how gratifying it was. He now loves the crop fields that his parents handed over to him. He cultivates potatoes and peas, the crops that yield the biggest profits from wholesalers in the area.


He has been working his crop fields along with laborers whom he hires seasonally, be it for sowing, pruning, or harvesting. Because he has been prosperous in agriculture and has enough money saved up, he is planning to build his own house so that he can start a family in the future. At the same time, he also wants to revitalize his parents' farms to make them productive.


This is his second loan with MFP, and he feels very happy to be able to make his monthly payments on time, which is why the other communal bank members admire him. He will invest the money that he is requesting in purchasing two sacks of pea seed, two sacks of organic fertilizer, and two bottles of insecticide to spray his potato crops.

Jhonatan es un joven de 19 años, vive con sus padres Mario de 69 y Gabriela de 59 años.
La responsabilidad de hacerse cargo de sus padres lo impulsaron a incursione en la agricultura, actividad que no le gustaba por lo sacrificado que es, pero desconocía lo gratificante.
Ahora ama los terrenos que le cedieron sus padres donde cultiva papa y arveja, productos que le generan mayores ingresos económicos al comercializarlos a los comerciantes mayoristas del mercado de su ciudad.
Desde hace 4 años labra sus tierras sólo con operarios, a quienes contrata por campañas agrícolas, ya sea para sembrar, limpiar o cosechar sus frutos.
Como le va muy bien en la siembra y tiene ahorros está planeando construir su casa propia para más adelante formar su hogar, a la vez quiere recuperar todas las chacras de sus padres para hacerlas producir.

Este es el segundo préstamo que tiene con MFP y se siente muy contento de poder responder puntualmente al pago mensual de sus cuotas, por lo que es admirado por la gente de su banco comunal. El dinero que solicita lo invertirá en la compra de dos bolsas de semilla de arveja, dos bolsas de abono orgánico y dos botellas de insecticidas para fumigar sus cultivos de papa.
