Jaimer
Jaimer, 40 years old, is a happy and hardworking man who originally hails from the Santa Rosa district. He is married to Ernestina, 31 years old; they have 3 beautiful children and live together in their own home in the community of Ranramayo, a hamlet in the Santa Rosa district. Jaimer is the breadwinner for his family; he works in agriculture and has been working the land since he was 18 years old. His land contains cocoa and coffee plantations, with plants that are native to the Río Apurimac Valley woodlands. At harvest time he needs a helping hand from contracted day laborers in order to proceed with harvesting the beans. For him, the best part of his job is harvesting the beans from the plant; a time when he feels that the quality of his beans makes the months of hard work worthwhile. He believes that the hardest part of his job is transporting his produce from the farm to the warehouses located in the district of San Francisco, where he is offered better prices for his coffee and cocoa beans. In the future, he wishes to buy new lands and sow more cocoa plants using more modern methods so that he can produce organic cocoa. This is his tenth loan with MFP; he feels that this support will greatly help him to continue with his work, and he is wiling to comply punctually with his repayment schedule. He will use the 3000 Nuevo Soles to contract workers to harvest the coffee beans.
