Armando
Armando is 39 years old, rents a home with his partner Herlinda and children. They consider him an honest and hardworking man who is willing to improve his family’s standard of living through his efforts and perseverance. He has been farming for 25 years. As far as working on rented land he grows potatoes, peas, and gladiolas. Since he makes enough profits with this activity it helps him continue with raising cows, llamas, pigs, and donkeys. Farming is his favorite activity, however he has trouble carrying heavy sacs filled with his products. He says, “it is nice having a plentiful crop, but to transfer it to the market is very difficult.” That is why his biggest desire is to sow larger quantities and increase his productivity in order to set up a grocery store within his home. This would allow him to offer a favorable standard of living to his loved ones. The excitement he feels motivates him to continue striving everyday. This is his sixth loan with MFP and he is very enthusiastic of working with the members of his communal bank since they are very responsible and united. With the 2,500 Peruvian soles he is requesting he will buy pea seeds to sow and various sacs of manure to maintain his potato crop.

Armando tiene 39 años, vive en una casa alquilada, junto a su pareja Herlinda de 40 años y sus dos hijos. A él lo consideran como un hombre honesto y muy trabajador y está dispuesto a sacar adelante a su familia a base de esfuerzo y perseverancia. Hace más de 25 años, se dedica a la agricultura, por lo que trabaja sobre terrenos arrendados, cultivando papa, alverja y gladiolo, ya que esta actividad le genera ingresos económicos que le ayudan a continuar con la crianza de vacas, toros, carneros, cerdos y asnos. La cosecha, es lo que más le gusta de todas las actividades que desarrolla, por otro lado le incomoda cargar los pesados sacos llenos de productos, según manifiesta: “es bonito tener una buena cosecha, pero para trasladarlo al mercado es pesado y muy difícil”. Es por ello que su mayor anhelo es sembrar en mayor cantidad, para que pueda aumentar su productividad, asimismo desea instalar una tienda de venta de comestibles en su domicilio, ya que esto le permitirá brindarle una adecuada calidad de vida a sus seres queridos. La emoción que siente lo motiva a continuar luchando a diario. Este es su sexto crédito con MFP, y se muestra bastante entusiasta de laborar con los integrantes de su grupo comunal, puesto que son muy responsables y unidos. Con los dos mil quinientos nuevos soles que solicita, comprará semilla de alverja para sembrar, adicionalmente desea comprar varios sacos de bono para cuidar los cultivos de papa.
