Feliciano
Feliciano, 65, is married to Eusebia, 57. They have 7 children, 5 of whom still live with them in a rented house.

He has worked the land of his birth for 40 years; something that makes him appreciate what he does very much. He grows corn, potato and all kinds of vegetables on leased lands. His youngest son helps him with the farm chores while his wife prepares the meals so that they can carry on and withstand this work beneath the intense heat of the sun.

The profits that have been obtained have allowed him to meet household expenses as well as pay for the education of his children, who are now independent.

He plans to buy farm lands in the future as well as a house in which to live comfortably.

This is his 3rd loan with MFP. During this time he has learned to value teamwork within his communal group; he enjoys taking part in all the meetings.

He will use the requested 3000 new soles to buy several cans of cauliflower, lettuce, spinach and coriander seed as well as chemical products to protect his crops.

Feliciano tiene 65 años, casado con Eusebia de 57 años, y ambos tienen 7 hijos, de los cuales viven con 5 de ellos en una casa alquilada. Desde hace 40 años que trabaja en las tierras que lo vieron crecer, por lo que aprecia mucho la actividad que realiza, sembrando siempre maíz, papa y todas clase de hortalizas, y que son cultivados en terrenos arrendados, que junto a su hijo menor, lo ayuda en la labor agrícola, mientras su esposa se esmera en preparar los alimentos, para que de esa manera puedan continuar y resistir este trabajo, bajo el calor intenso del sol. Con las ganancias que ha obtenido ha podido solventar los gastos de su hogar así como la educación de sus hijos, quienes ya son independientes. Para su futuro, piensa comprar terrenos agrícolas, además de una casa para que pueda vivir cómodamente. Este es su tercer crédito con MFP, y en este tiempo ha aprendido a valorar el trabajo en equipo, dentro de su grupo comunal, por eso le gusta participar de cada reunión que tiene. Con los tres mil nuevos soles que solicita, comprará varias latas de semilla de coliflor, lechuga, espinaca y culantro, así también comprará productos químicos para proteger sus cultivos.
