Sandro
Sandro is 35 years old. He is a single, hard-working man who lives independently from his family, having bought a house next to his parents' home which is located in Unión Palomar (in the central Peruvian jungle). Sandro grows bananas and coffee on his 3 hectares of farmland. This is his main business activity.

What Sandro most enjoys about his work is being able to watch his beans mature as he looks after them very carefully. He has 20 years experience in growing and selling coffee beans. He sells his produce to traders who visit his land annually, every harvest season. He has to invest a large quantity of money in order to obtain good profits. During the other months of the year, when there is no harvest, Sandro works as a laborer on other people's crops, making a monthly income of 500 Peruvian soles that he uses to cover his personal expenses and those of his own crops.

Sandro is a member of the 'Desarrollando para el Progreso de Prisma' community bank and this is his first loan from MFP. He feels very happy to have been offered a chance to make progress. Sandro will buy 10 sacks of guano which he will spread over his coffee plantations because in April he will begin extracting his first mature beans.

Sandro, de 35 años, es un hombre soltero y trabajador que se independizó de su familia; comprando una casa al costado de la vivienda de sus padres, ubicada en Unión Palomar (selva central peruana). La siembra de plátanos y café en sus 3 hectáreas de terrenos agrícolas; es su principal actividad. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es poder ver madurar los granos que cuida con mucho esmero. Ya tiene 20 años de experiencia en la siembra y venta de sus granos de café, que vende a los mismos intermediarios que visitan sus terrenos anualmente en cada campaña agrícola. Donde tiene que invertir gran cantidad de dinero para obtener una buena ganancia. Asimismo cuenta que los demás meses del año, donde no hay cosecha, trabaja como peón en otros cultivos, obteniendo una ganancia mensual de S/. 500 nuevos soles, que le ayudan a solventar sus gastos personales y los de su cultivo propio. Él pertenece al banco comunal “desarrollando para el progreso de prisma”, y este es el primer crédito con MFP, donde se siente feliz por la oportunidad de progreso que le facilitaron. Sandro, comprará 10 sacos de guano de isla, los cuales esparcirá entre sus plantaciones de café; porque en el mes de abril comenzará la rebusca (extracción de los primeros granos maduros).
