Aurelio
Aurelio is 55 years old. He is married to 53 year-old Mery. They have 11 children but only live with 7 of them. They live in their own home in the town of Centro Culebrayoc.

Aurelio grows potatoes, corn, beans and peas. This has been his main business activity for 18 years. From the very first hours of each morning, he works on his land which he managed to obtain through hard work and commitment. What he most likes about his work is being able to get rid of the weeds that grow on his plantations. They are a real headache because if they are allowed to grow they can ruin his sown fields. However, without doubt, the days that Aurelio enjoys are the dates when he takes his harvest to the wholesale market in his town, where he sells his produce and sees all his hard work pay off. This hard-working man also raises cows and rams, selling the milk and wool which they produce.

This is Aurelio's tenth loan from MFP and he is certain that through the joint work of the members of his community bank, they will be able to get ahead in the development of their goals. He will use his loan to buy several sacks of organic fertilizer and also natural fertilizers which he will spread over his potato and bean crops.

Aurelio, de 55 años, está casado con Mery, de 53 años. Ambos tienen 11 hijos, pero solo viven con 7 de ellos, en su casa propia ubicada en la localidad de Centro Culebrayoc. La siembra de papa, maíz, habas y arvejas, es su principal actividad desde hace 18 años. Desde las primera horas del día, se dedica al cuidado de sus terrenos agrícolas, que con tanto esfuerzo y dedicación logró obtener. Lo que más le gusta de su labor, es poder quitar la melaza que crece en sus plantaciones, las cuales le resulta un dolor de cabeza, ya que si las permite crecer, pueden malograr el sembrío. Pero sin duda, los días que disfruta Aurelio, son las fechas que lleva su cosecha al mercado mayorista de su ciudad, donde vende su producción y ve reflejado todo su refuerzo. Esté trabajador hombre también, se dedica a la crianza de vaca y carnero, donde vende la leche y la lana que produce. Este es su décimo crédito con MFP, y está seguro que con el esfuerzo conjunto de los integrantes de su banco comunal, podrán salir adelante, en el desarrollo de sus objetivos. Con el crédito que solicita, comprará varios sacos de abono orgánico, como también fertilizantes naturales, los cuales esparcirá en sus sembríos de papa y habas.
