Eugenio
Eugenio, 51, is single living in his 84-year-old mother, Mariana’s, house seeing that no harm comes to her due to her advanced age. Also living with him is his 17 year old sister, Kely. Even though he does not live with his son, William, he works hard to provide him the quality of life he deserves. Because of this, for the last 35 years Eugenio has been farming. He grows potatoes, peas and lima beans in his own fields that his mother passed on to him. Eugenio can count on help from his sister and his nephews because they are a united family, always willing to help each other out.

What he most enjoys about his work is selecting which potatoes to harvest according to quality and size for sale later at markets in the city of Tarma where he already has wholesale buyers who know him.

He wants to pass on his fields to his nephews so that they can earn income and help them become independent because he was able to use his savings to buy the car he so wished for. Every day he provides transportation services on the San Juan de la Libertad-Tarma route. According to what he says, he does very well. “It’s more tranquil,” he affirms. He also wants to take potato seed to the city of Arequipa (on the coast) where he has good buyers.

He is a member of the “Unión por el Trabajo” (Unity for Work) communal bank and this is the fifth loan with MFP where he is happy because once again they are providing him with help to have the capital his work requires. Besides, he will continue to work in his association together with his fellow group members.

Eugenio will plant the “Yungay” variety of potatoes so has asked for a loan to buy 10 sacks of organic manure (yard guano) that he’ll use to insure good growth of this next planting.
