Benjamin
Benjamín, 62, is an enthusiastic man, married to Rosalía, 65. They have 4 children, of whom only one still lives with them, in their own home, which is made of rudimentary materials.

He has been a farmer for the last 18 years growing corn, potatoes and all kinds of vegetables that grow in this area with occasional help from his wife who, for the most part, is in charge of her household.

He does not complain about the hard work but he is bothered by having to lug the heavy sacks full of his products to market in the city even more so when prices of fertilizer, which he needs to improve crop yields, rise

As always, Benjamín is concerned with his family’s wellbeing as is shown in the photo where he is digging a drainage ditch for his house thereby improving his quality of life.

I time, he’d like to become good at raising guinea pigs and cattle because they are in high demand in the market.

This is his 9th loan with MFP and he hopes to meet his goals; he also wants to continue to work with his communal group because it’s composed of responsible persons.

He will use the 2500 new soles requested to buy several sacks of organic manure and fertilizers as well as a sack of pea seed.

Benjamin tiene 62 años, es un hombre muy entusiasta, casado con Rosalía de 65 años, y juntos tienen 4 hijos, de los cuales solo vive con uno de ellos, en su casa propia, hecho de material rustico. Desde hace 18 años que se dedica a la agricultura, cultivando maíz, papa y todas clase de verduras que producen es esta zona y con la ayuda eventual de su esposa, quien se encarga la mayor parte del tiempo a su hogar. Él manifiesta no quejarse de lo sacrificado que es su labor, pero si le molesta tener que trasladar sus pesados sacos, llenos de productos hacia el mercado de su ciudad, y aún más cuando se eleva el precio de fertilizantes, elementos que le ayuda para mejorar la producción de sus siembras. Como siempre, Benjamin piensa en el bienestar de su familia, como se muestra en la foto, en donde esta cavando la instalación de desagüe para su casa y de esa manera mejorar su calidad de vida, asimismo con el tiempo, busca convertirse en criador de cuyes y en el cebado de toros, por la demanda que tiene en el mercado. Este es su noveno crédito con MFP, por lo que espera cumplir con sus propósitos, asimismo desea continuar trabajando con su grupo comunal, por estar integrado por personas responsables. Con los dos mil quinientos nuevos soles que solicita, comprará varios sacos de abono orgánico y fertilizantes, además de una bolsa de semilla de alverja.
