Teobaldo
Teobaldo is 42 years old and lives with Baseliza, who is 40 years old. They have five young children who they feed and educated in their own home, located in the Peruvian jungle in the native community center Pumpuriani.

Like a good farmer, he constantly travels to the Sankivironi community from Pumpuriani, where he has coffee fields. His coffee is called "Theobaldo's flagship product", and his 17 years of experience supports its success. He has eight hectares of coffee fields and his crops are very good. The main coffee growers recognize his quality, and because of this, he is contracted as the principle distributor to the the natural coffee factory in his area, "Montaña" [Mountain].

Teobaldo always has the necessary quantities for his buyers, however, he has problems moving to the different communities where he has to care for his crops. He is thinking about buying a house in the community of Sankivironi, where he will have more resources to care for his fields.

This is is fifth loan with MFP, and he is grateful to his community bank because they support him and have groups to subsidize some shortages in agriculture. With this loan, he will buy more coffee seeds and clear 2 hectares of arable land (by burning the fields to plant new crops) where he will plant bananas and corn.

Teobaldo, de 42 años, es un hombre luchador; convive con Baseliza de 40 años, con la que tiene 5 hijos menores, a quienes alimenta y educa en su casa propia ubicada en la Selva Peruana (comunidad nativa centro Pumpuriani). Pero como buen agricultor, él se traslada constantemente de la comunidad Sankivironi hacia Pumpuriani; donde tienen sembríos de café; “producto bandera de Teobaldo”; ya que sus 17 años de experiencia respaldan su éxito; él tiene 8 hectáreas de terrenos de café y sus sembríos son muy buenos; tanto así que los principales cafetaleros del lugar reconocen su calidad; por ello la fábrica de café natural de la localidad, “Montaña”, lo contrató como su principal distribuidor. Teobaldo siempre tiene la cantidad necesaria, para sus compradores; sin embargo, tiene problemas al trasladarse a las diferentes comunidades donde tiene que cuidar de sus cultivos; por ello está pensando adquirir una casa en la comunidad de Sankivironi, con ello podrá tener mayores facilidades para cuidar sus plantaciones. Este es el quinto crédito con MFP, y está agradecido con su banco comunal ya que se apoyan y agrupan para poder subsidiar algunas carencias en la agricultura. Con el crédito que solicita, comprará más semillas de café, de la misma manera rozará 2 hectáreas de terrenos de cultivo (quemado de las plantaciones para sembrar una nueva), donde sembrará plátano y maíz.
