Edwin
Edwin, 33 years old, is a model father who fights through adversity. He has been separated from his partner for about a year, and he is raising their small three-year old son, Angel. They live together in a rented house. Edwin has worked in agriculture for 13 years, and he grows plantains, pineapples, and coffee on his own land as well as land that he rents. So every day Edwin prepares his meals and heads off to his fields, and he brings his young son with him because he has no one to leave the child with. They spend all day together caring for their land. Of all the work that he does, Edwin enjoys planting coffee and picking the beans to sell them to the commercial wholesalers, who recognize the quality of his product and pay him a good price. He hopes to plant more coffee plants because this is a very profitable product, which sells for 8 soles per kilo. He hopes to build his own house and continue to acquire land in order to grow the size of his farm. This is the second loan Edwin will receive from MFP; he is an enthusiastic person and is happy to work with the community bank. He will use the loan money to buy bags of fertilizer and hire laborers.

Edwin, de 33 años, es un ejemplar padre de familia, que lucha ante las adversidades, él está separado de su pareja alrededor de un año, y se hace cargo de su pequeño hijo Ángel de 3 años, con quien vive en una casa alquilada. La agricultura, es la actividad a la que se dedica desde hace 13 años, al cultivar plátanos, piña y café, en sus terrenos propios y arrendados. Es entonces que Edwin todos los días, prepara sus alimentos para luego dirigirse a sus chacras, en compañía de su pequeño hijo, pues no tiene con quien dejarlo, y permanecen juntos casi todo el día cuidando sus tierras. De toda la labor que realiza, le gusta cosechar los granos de café, asimismo le gusta escogerlos para luego venderlos a los comerciantes mayoristas, quienes conocen la calidad de su fruto y le pagan considerable ganancias. Tener mayor cantidad de plantas de café, le genera productividad, por lo que es bastante rentable cultivar este producto, que vende a S/. 8.00 soles el kilo, por ello planea construir una casa propia y continuar adquiriendo terrenos donde pueda continuar incrementando sus plantaciones. Esta es la segunda vez que tiene un crédito con MFP, y como persona entusiasta que es, se siente contento de continuar trabajando en su grupo comunal. Con el crédito que solicita, comprará sacos de abono y contratar operarios.
