Victor
Victor, 47, lives with his partner, Haydee (47) and their 3 children in their own house in a peaceful area of the Peruvian sierra. He and his wife decide very early every morning which of the fields need to be worked. They have been farming for 15 years growing grains (fodder ), potatoes, olluco and oca (Andean tubers), and they count on eventually having the help of their children. They also raise animals (rams and donkeys) and this helps them pay for the farm supplies they need to take adequate care of their crops. What they like the most is to water their plants because they know that water helps strengthen their crops, and the earnings from the farm are high enough to cover their household expenses and their children’s schooling. Since Haydee is a hard-working woman, in the future she plans to keep growing these crops that are native to Peru. This is the second time that Victor has a loan with MFP and he is happy to know that he will continue working with the members of the communal group since they agreed to take out a loan for a short time. They are responsible and supportive members in the repayment of the loan. Victor plans to invest the money in the purchase of some bags of fertilizer that he will spread over the plants this season so that the quality of the crops will be improved.

Víctor, de 47 años vive con su pareja Haydee (47) y sus 3 hijos, en su casa que es propia, en una apacible zona de la sierra peruana.Junto a su esposa, todos los días coordinan desde muy temprano, cuales son las chacras que necesitan ser trabajadas. Ya llevan 15 años en la agricultura sembrando avena (pastizal), papa, olluco y oca, ambos cuentan con la ayuda eventual de sus hijos, paralelamente crían animales (carneros y asnos), que le ayudan a trasladar los insumos agrícolas necesarios para cuidar adecuadamente sus cultivos. Lo que más le gusta es regar sus cultivos, porque sabe que con el agua se agiliza el desarrollo de sus frutos, y las ganancias son bastante rentables y cubren sus gastos domésticos y la educación de sus hijos. Como es una mujer emprendedora para más adelante tiene planeado continuar sembrando estos productos que son oriundos del Perú.Es la segunda vez que tiene un préstamo con MFP, y le agrada mucho saber que continuará trabajando con los integrantes de su grupo comunal, ahora que acordaron sacar el crédito para un corto tiempo, debido a que son personas responsables y solidarias en el pago de sus cuotas.Víctor tiene planeado invertir el dinero solicitado en la compra de varios sacos de abono que esparcirá sobre sus cultivos en esta campaña, para mejorar la calidad de sus cultivos agrícolas.
