Adolfo
Adolfo is 45 years old and separated from his wife. They have a 12-year old daughter called Fabiola who lives with Adolfo's mother Eluisa aged 70. Adolfo makes sure she doesn't lack for anything.

Adolfo is a farmer. Since he was a little boy, he has looked up to his father as an example of a person who overcomes difficulties and perseveres, virtues that are important if you want to get ahead.

Harvest time, especially the harvest of potatoes and olluco (Peruvian tuber), is very hard work which requires a lot of effort. However, the reward is the money he earns which pays for his own expenses and those of his mother.

As well as farming, Adolfo raises animals such as cows which bring in additional income. However, it is hard to manage by himself as he doesn't have any family members to help him. He has to contract out the work.

In the future he would like to get more fields and increase both production and quality. His daughter is his motivation--he wants to provide her with the best he can.

This is his fourth loan with Kiva partner MFP and he is clearly keen to improve his life. His community group is his second family and he enjoys working with them because they share the same goals. With the S/.2500 he plans to buy two bags of fertilizer and a sack of pea seeds.

Adolfo tiene 45 años, está separado de su esposa, pero de aquel compromiso tienen una hija, Fabiola de 12 años. En la actualidad vive en casa de su madre, Eluisa de 70 años, de quien cuida que no le falte nada, además es una persona que se dedica a las labores agrícolas. Desde muy pequeño vio a su padre como un ejemplo, en donde la superación y perseverancia, son virtudes importantes para salir adelante, de esa manera la temporada de cosecha, sobre todo de tubérculos como la papa y el olluco, son trabajos rigurosos, que requieren de mucha dedicación, siendo la recompensa las ganancias que obtienen y que le ayudan a cubrir sus gastos y los de su madre. Paralelamente a la agricultura, se dedica a la ganadería, en donde la crianza de vacas, le aporta otro ingreso adicional, ya que extrae diariamente leche para la fabricación de quesos, vendiéndolos luego en las tiendas de su localidad. Sin embargo, le es muy difícil desempeñarse sólo pues no cuenta con la ayuda de ningún familiar, por el contrario contrata operarios. Según refiere, en el futuro desea adquirir un mayor número de terrenos para cultivar y aumentar su producción y que sea de calidad, pues como motor de vida tiene a su hija, a quien le quiere brindar lo mejor que puede. Este es su cuarto crédito con MFP, y se muestra con mucha disposición para mejorar, asimismo su grupo comunal es su segunda familia, con quienes le agrada trabajar, porque comparten sus mismos objetivos. Con los dos mil quinientos soles que solicita, comprará dos sacos de abono y una bolsa de semilla de arveja.
