Hilario
Hilario is 32 years old, he is married and has two children, Jhon and Yoselin, aged respectively 7 and 3. They all live in the Quimbiri settlement, located at the edge of the Peruvian rainforest, where they own a wooden house. At first, when he started engaging in the agriculture activity of planting and selling coffee, things were not going as he had imagined; but as he likes challenges, he did not worry about the future and, insisting on it and intensifying this activity, he now produces a good quantity of coffee that he sells to his regular customers. He is very happy about his success, and his sales have increased compared to the previous months as well. His wife generally works with in team with him, but for the harvest season he contracts laborers, in order to more easily crop his final products, that are to be sold to the local collection centers. In the future, Hilario wishes to buy some land in the town of Huanta, in order to build a house for his family and to be able, in time, to rent rooms, as this would generate new incomes. This is his fifth loan with MFP, and he commits to keeping on repaying his dues, the same way he did with his previous loans; he is also satisfied with his communal bank because of its members’ commitment and good behavior. He will use the loan he is requesting to buy materials and fertilizers in order to preserve the quality of his coffee plantations.

Hilario tiene 32 años de edad, está casado y tiene dos hijos; Jhon y Yoselin, de 7 y 3 años respectivamente. Juntos residen en la localidad de Quimbiri, ubicada en la ceja de la selva peruana, donde tienen su propio techo a base de madera. En un principio, cuando se inició en la actividad agricola, cultivando y comercializando café, no lo estaba yendo, tal como él se lo había imaginado. Pero como a él le gustan los retos, no le tuvo miedo a lo que se venía, es así que insistió y se intensificó en esta labor, hoy produce cantidad de café, que son distribuidos a sus compradores asiduos. Se siente muy contento por lo que viene atravesando, incluso sus ventas aumentaron con respecto a los anteriores meses. Por lo general trabaja con su esposa y juntos laboran de manera colectiva, pero en temporada de cosecha, tiene a cargo de sus peones, con la finalidad de que les pueda facilitar la extracción de su producto final, siendo estos vendidos en los centros de acopio de su misma localidad. En el futuro, Hilario anhela comprar un lote de terreno, en la ciudad de Huanta, con la finalidad de que pueda construir su casa y con el tiempo pueda alquilar cuartos, ello lo generaría nuevos ingresos económicos. Este es su quinto crédito con MFP, por el cual se compromete a seguir cumpliendo con sus respectivos pagos, tal como lo hizo en los anteriores préstamos, además está satisfecho con su banco comunal, debido al buen comportamiento y compromiso de sus socios. Con el crédito que solicita lo piensa invertir en la compra de insumos y abono, con la finalidad de que pueda preservar la calidad de sus plantaciones de café.
