Eusebio
Eusebio is 46 years old and lives in his own home with his wife Celia (40 years old) and his three young sons. They are working together to get ahead.
Since he was very young, Eusebio has worked in agriculture, planting peas, potatoes and corn on the land that he bought thanks to many years of constant effort in his job. He says that he works alongside his family and that he likes this work because it is peaceful. Although it is a sacrifice to get up at dawn every day to care for his crops, the reward for his effort is a productive harvest that he sells at the largest market in his city for good prices.

What he doesn't like about his job is that he must transport all his products to the city in order to sell them, because it is very tiring. Since he wants to continue his progress for the future, he is planning to plant greater quantities of crops and also to buy a few head of cattle to raise and then sell them at a higher price. This is his 7th loan with MFP and he is very grateful to all the people that made this credit possible because it allowed him to continue working. He also says that the work with his community group is very organized, because the members of the group are responsible people, and punctual in their loan repayments. With the loan he has requested, he will buy the manure and fertilizer that he needs to improve his soil and hopes to continue his progress this way.

Eusebio, de 46 años, vive en su casa que es propia en compañía de su esposa Celia (40) y sus 3 jóvenes hijos, juntos trabajan para salir adelante. Desde muy joven se dedica a la agricultura; siembra arveja, papa y maíz en sus tierras que compró gracias a varios años de constante esfuerzo en su trabajo. Dice que trabaja a lado de toda su familia, y que le gusta esta labor porque es tranquila y aunque es algo sacrificado madrugar todos los días para vigilar sus cultivos, la recompensa a su esfuerzo, es recoger una productiva cosecha, que vende en el mercado mayorista de su ciudad a buenos precios. Lo que no le gusta de su trabajo es que debe trasladar todos sus productos para venderlos, hasta la ciudad, porque es bastante cansado. Como quiere continuar progresando para el futuro tiene planeado sembrar en mayor cantidad, además de comprar algunas cabezas de reses para criarlas y luego venderlas a mayor precio. Es el séptimo crédito con MFP, y esta muy agradecido con todas las personas que hicieron posible el crédito que le permitirá continuar trabajando, también dice que el trabajo con su grupo comunal es bastante organizado, porque los miembros de su grupo son personas responsables y puntuales en el pago de sus cuotas. Con el crédito solicitado, comprará abono y fertilizantes que necesita para mejorar sus tierras, de esta manera espera continuar progresando.
