Victor
Victor is 44 years old and a cheerful hardworking father. He lives in his own home with his wife Flaviana, age 45, and their five beloved children for whom he wants to provide the best education. As a boy, his parents taught him everything about farming and as time passed he was given the responsibility to take charge of their land when his older brother decided to pursue other activities. Victor now has vast plots of farmland where he grows peas and potatoes, which are later sold at the wholesale market in Tarma. What he enjoys most about his job is cultivating the land since the work helps to feed his family. Victor has been in business for 20 years and considers the most difficult part to be protecting his crops from plagues of insects that impact his production. His greatest wish is to buy a vehicle so that he can easily transport his harvest into the city.


This is his sixth loan with MFP. Victor has always been punctual with his payments and hopes to continue to do the same with this loan. In his Communal Bank, he is one of the members who gets along well with the rest of the group. With the loan of 2000 PEN that he requested, Victor will buy seeds for planting peas since it is the crop that currently sells the best.

Víctor, de 44 años, es un padre de familia muy alegre y trabajador, vive en su casa propia junto a su esposa Flaviana de 45 años y sus 5 queridos hijos, a quienes desea brindarles una mejor educación. Cuando era niño, le enseñaron todo lo que debía saber de la chacra y poco a poco a medida que pasaba el tiempo, se fue encargando él solo de las tierras de sus padres, ya que su hermano mayor decidió dedicarse a otras actividades. Ahora tiene extensos campos de cultivo, en las cuales cosecha alverja y papa, para luego venderlos en el mercado mayorista de Tarma. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo, es cultivar sus tierras, ya que es la actividad que le da de comer a su familia, lleva 20 años realizando esta actividad y considera que lo más difícil, es cuidar sus productos de las plagas de insectos que afectan su producción. Su mayor anhelo es comprarse un carro, para que pueda facilitar el transporte de su cosecha a la ciudad. Este es su sexto crédito con MFP, siempre ha sido muy puntual en el pago de sus cuotas y espera serlo ahora también. En su grupo comunal es un socio muy solidario con el resto de sus compañeras. Con los dos mil nuevos soles que solicita, comprará semillas de alverja, ya que actualmente es lo que mejor se esta vendiendo.
