Nazario
Nazario is 31 years old. He is a very straightforward and cheerful man. He lives in his own house and is willing to work very hard with the aim of getting ahead in life.

Still having a lifetime ahead of him, he knows that he has to put all of his effort into earning a steady living through his labor. He works growing potatoes, corn and peas, and when harvest time comes, he takes them to sell in the city's wholesale market. His clients (merchants) are familiar with the quality of his crops, and so they buy them up quickly.

What he likes most about his work is protecting his fields from pests. He has worked in farming for 10 years, and he thinks the hardest part is taking his products to the market where he sells them, since the sacks he carries are very heavy. For the future, he would like to buy more land in order to increase his agricultural production.

This is Nazario's eighth loan with MFP, and he knows that he needs to make his payments punctually if he wants to have access to another loan later. He is a very active participant in his communal bank. With the two thousand Peruvian new soles he is requesting, he will buy potato and pea seeds, as well as fertilizer and insecticides.

Nazario tiene 31 años, es un hombre muy sencillo y alegre. Vive en su casa propia y está dispuesto a trabajar muy duro con tal de sobre salir en la vida.

Teniendo todavía una vida por delante, sabe que tiene que poner todas sus fuerzas para lograr ganarse la vida con su labor. Él se dedica a la siembra de papa, choclo y alverja, productos que llegada la época de cosecha lleva a vender al mercado mayorista de la ciudad, donde sus clientes (comerciantes), conocedores de la calidad de sus cultivos, los compran rápidamente.
Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es cuidar sus siembras de las plagas; lleva 10 años realizando esta actividad y considera que lo más difícil es llevar sus cultivos hasta el mercado donde los vende, ya que los sacos que lleva son muy pesados. Para más adelante, desea comprar más tierras con las cuales pueda aumentar su producción agrícola.

Este es el octavo préstamo de Nazario con MFP, sabe que tiene que pagar sus cuotas puntualmente si desea acceder a otro crédito posteriormente. Asimismo, en su banco comunal es un socio muy participativo. Con los dos mil nuevos soles solicitados comprará semillas de papa y alverja, también abono e insecticidas.
