Fidel
Fidel, age 26, lives with Yolanda, 24; together they are a close family with their 1 year old daughter Stefany. They look after and educate Stefany in their own, rented, house, located in the Yanapuquio area (sierra del Perú). Every morning they get ready to go out and cultivate their potatoes, this being the family's main source of income. From the first hours of day until nightfall they dedicate their time to the cultivation of their crops. They are at the limit of their land and cannot easily expand [production]. Sure of his skill, Fidel states that his potato crop is always the most prized in the market, his potatoes being "Yungay" - a variety that is in great demand. Because of this he travels to market 3 times a month, and he is saving part of the money to buy a house. This is his 9th loan with [field partner] MFP and he likes the communal bank as his means of saving: with it he is sure he will be able to realize his goals. With the loan he obtains, he will buy organic fertilizer that will enable him to harvest the potato crop within a month.

Fidel, de 26 años, vive junto a Yolanda, de 24; ambos constituyeron una familia muy unida, que en compañía de su hija Stefany de 1 año; a la que cuidan y educan en una casa alquilada, viven en una casa propia ubicada en la localidad de Yanapuquio (sierra del Perú). Todas las mañanas se alistan para poder cultivar papa, siendo la principal actividad de la familia; es así que empieza desde las primeras horas del día hasta el anochecer, dedicándose al cuidado de sus cultivos; ya que la extensión de terreno, no les permite avanzar con facilidad. Seguro de su gran esfuerzo, Fidel afirma que durante todo este tiempo la papa, es la más cotizada en el mercado; siendo la Yungay, una variedad de papa que tiene mucha demanda. Es así que viaja tres veces por mes al mercado central de su localidad, por ello Fidel está ahorrando parte de su dinero para adquirir una casa, de esa manera podrá trasladarse con facilidad. Es el noveno crédito con MFP y le gusta que su banco comunal, sea su poder de ahorro; con ello está seguro que podrá lograr mucho de sus objetivos. Con el crédito que obtendrá; comprará abono orgánico; para que pueda cosechar papa dentro de un mes.
