Jorge
Jorge is a 32-year-old man who is married to Elizabeth, age 28, with whom he has 3 young children. They live in a rented house in the town of La Sierra Central.


He wakes up at 5 in the morning daily because he has to walk for about an-hour-and-a-half to be able to get to his crops. However, this does not bother him. To the contrary, he considers this to be normal due to the location of his fields, and because he keeps his family's well-being in mind every time he puts in a lot of effort. He has been in agriculture for 5 years, and what he likes most is harvesting because he then sells his produce and pays for both the household expenses and his children's education. However, since he is a non-conformist, he would like to share more activities with his family, so he wants to find a steady job that is as lucrative as agriculture is.


This is his fourth loan with MFP, and he admits that he has been saving up money so that he will not default on his loans and let his communal bank members down because they all work hard to help the group get ahead. With the 1,500.00 PEN that he is now requesting, he will purchase 5 sacks of fertilizer in order to adequately care for his potato crops.

Jorge tiene 32 años, está casado con Elizabeth de 28 años, con quien tiene 3 pequeños hijos. Ellos viven en una casa alquilada en una comunidad de la sierra central.

A diario se despierta a las 5 de la mañana porque tiene que caminar alrededor de una hora y media para poder trabajar en sus cultivos. Esto no le molesta, al contrario considera que es normal debido a la ubicación de sus terrenos y porque cada esfuerzo que realiza lo hace pensando en el bienestar de su familia. Hace 5 años que se dedica a esto y lo que más le gusta es cosechar porque luego comercializa sus productos para cubrir los gastos domésticos y la educación de sus hijos. Pero como no es una persona conformista y quiere compartir más actividades con los miembros de su familia, desea encontrar un trabajo estable y seguro, pero también rentable como la agricultura.

Este es el cuarto préstamo que tiene con MFP y confiesa que ya viene ahorrando para no fallar a los integrantes de su banco comunal con los pagos, pues todos se esfuerzan para sacar adelante su grupo. Con los mil quinientos soles que ahora solicita comprará cinco sacos de fertilizantes para cuidar adecuadamente sus cultivos de papa.
