Andres
Andrés is a cheerful man, and he is very hard-working. He is 56 years old, and he is married to 46 year old Alejandrina. They have five children, but they only live with three of them in his own house. His children were always the impetus of his life. For them he overcame all obstacles that presented themselves along the way.

For over ten years he and his wife have been growing coffee and bananas. He likes to apply fertilizer to his coffee fields because it helps the productivity of his crop. However, with the high cost of this product, he did not earn what he had hoped to. But, a least he recovered his investment.

In time he plans to increase his planting until he comes to be the most recognized coffee producer in his area. He will become a wholesale merchant.

This is his third loan with MFP. He knows that it is thanks to the way the members of his communal bank work together, making their payments punctually, that they have a good credit history.

He will use the requested 2,500 PEN to buy several bags of fertilizer. He will also hire workers to clean his fields.

Sus hijos siempre fueron el motor de su vida, por ellos venció todos los obstáculos que se le presentaron en el camino, desde entonces lleva más de 10 años dedicándose al cultivo de café y plátano en compañía de su esposa. Dentro de su actividad, le agrada aplicar abono a sus cafetales, eso le ayuda a preveer que tan productiva será su cosecha, sin embargo el costo alto de este producto no logra ganar lo espera, pero al menso recupera la inversión. Con el tiempo espera incrementar sus plantaciones hasta llegar a ser el productor de café más reconocido de su localidad y convertirse en un comerciante mayorista. Este es su tercer crédito con MFP, y sabe que es gracias al trabajo conjunto que desempeño junto a los integrantes de su grupo comunal en donde fueron puntuales en cada pago, creando así un buen historial crediticio. Con los dos mil quinientos soles que solicita, comprará varios sacos de fertilizantes, además contratará operarios para que se encarguen de la limpieza de sus terrenos.
