Pablo
Pablo is 54 years old. He lives with his partner, 42 year-old Antonia. They have 6 children together but only live with 5 of them. They live in their own home which is in Sanchirio community (in the Peruvian central jungle). Every day this dynamic and hard-working man heads off to his more than 7 hectares of farmland where he has been growing coffee for 12 years. His effort, hard work and determination have made Pablo's coffee beans the best in the area and this is clear from the fact that coffee traders constantly visit his plantations to buy his entire harvests.

Many others, like Pablo, are improving their coffee production because the current market requires quality crops. Pablo is planning to open a business buying and selling coffee wholesale. This is his third loan with MFP and as a hard-working and punctual member of his community bank, he feels fulfilled and committed to their work. He is planning to invest his loan in paying the salary of the laborers who he will hire to spread fertilizer and clear the weeds from his coffee crops since sometimes he cannot manage this on his own.

Pablo, de 54 años, convive con Antonia, de 42 años. Ambos tuvieron 6 hijos, pero solo viven con 5 de ellos, en su casa propia ubicada en la comunidad de Sanchirio (selva central peruana). Este vital y trabajador hombre, todos los días se dirige a sus más de 7 hectáreas de terrenos agrícolas, donde siembra desde hace ya 12 años, “café”. Aquí el esfuerzo, trabajo y constancia, hicieron del grano de café de Pablo, el mejor de la localidad, y muestra de ello, son los acopiadores de café, que constantemente visitan sus plantaciones, para comprar sus cosechas integras. Muchos como él, ya están mejorando sus producciones, pues el mercado actual requiere de producciones de calidad. Ahora está planeando, abrir un negocio de compra y venta de café al por mayor. Este es el tercer crédito con MFP, y como socio, trabajador y cumplido, de su banco comunal, se siente desarrollado y muy comprometido con el trabajo que realizan. De adquirir el crédito solicitado tiene pensado invertir en el salario, de los peones que contratará para aplicar abono y limpiar sus cultivos de café, ya que a veces no se abastece solo.
