Ugarte
Ugarte is 25-years-old. He's a modest, hardworking young father. He lives in his own house with his wife Nirce, 26, and his beloved daughter Joyita, who's 2-years-old. They are the principle motivation for all his hard work. The long days of work that Ugarte puts in at his small farm have made him realize that he has to work very hard to achieve a good quality crop. Every morning at dawn he walks approximately one hour to his fields where he grows coffee, bananas, cacao, and avocado.

During the past 8 years of agricultural work he's realized that he greatly enjoys farming and does it with much care, but part of the job is being very careful to avoid plagues which attack and damage the crop. In the future he hopes to buy new land to expand his crops. This is his third loan with MFP and he knows that he has to make his payments on time if he wants to gain access to other loans in the future. He's very active in his community. With the 2,000 PEN ($725) he's asking for he will buy more fertilizer for his crops.

Ugarte, de 25 años, es un joven padre de familia, muy sencillo y trabajador, vive en su casa propia junto a su esposa Nirce de 26 años y su querida hija Joyita de 2 años, quienes son el principal motivo de todos sus esfuerzos. Los largos días de trabajo que Ugarte tiene en sus chacras, le han hecho ver que tiene que trabajar muy duro para lograr una buena calidad en sus cultivos. Todas las mañanas, junto a los primeros rayos de sol, camina hasta sus campos donde están cultivados café, plátano, cacao y palta, las cuales están a una hora aproximadamente. Durante estos 8 años de trabajo agrícola, considera que disfruta mucho del cultivo y lo hace con mucho esmero, pero parte de este trabajo tiene que tener mucho cuidado para que la plaga no ataquen y dañen sus cultivos. En lo sucesivo espera comprar nuevas tierras para ampliar sus cultivos. Este es su tercer crédito con MFP, sabe que tiene que pagar sus cuotas puntualmente si desea acceder a otro crédito posteriormente. En su grupo comunal, es un compañero muy participativo. Con los dos mil nuevos soles que solicita, comprará más abono para aplicar y cuidar sus cultivos.
