Fredy
Fredy, 40 years old, is a happy and responsible man. For some 10 years he has lived with Jessica, his wife, whom he loves very much and with whom he has 2 children, cared for in his own house, located in the settlement of Santo Domingo.

Since Fredy was very young, he has dedicated himself to agricultural activity. This has been the principal economic activity in his family for some 23 years. His main crops are potatoes, peas, and corn, which he plants on his own farmland, acquired over many years with much effort.

What Fredy likes most about his work is eliminating weeds that grow among his plantings. But what really bothers him are the cold spells that follow the rains, since he loses many plantings, generating loses. For this reason, and because Fredy is a very inteligent person, he also raises livestock, especially sheep, hogs, and guinea pigs, which he cares for and sells at a good price, covering his family's costs of living. His business is doing very well, and for the future, he is thinking of acquiring a ranch on which he can better care for his livestock.

Fredy belongs to the “Santo Domingo de Tapo” Communal Bnak, and this is his 6th loan through MFP. He feels very grateful for this opportunity to progress. Fredy is preparing for the pea season. With this loan, he will buy a sack of seeds to begin sowing on agricultural land that has been lying fallow.

Fredy, de 40 años, es un hombre feliz y responsable. Hace 10 años que convive con Jessica, su esposa, a la que quiere mucho y con la que tiene 2 hijos; a los que cuida en su casa propia, ubicada en el caserío de Santo Domingo. Desde muy joven comenzó a dedicarse a la actividad agrícola, el principal ingreso económico de su familia, de eso hace 23 años promedio. Sus principales cultivos constan de papa, arveja y maíz, los cuales siembra en sus propios terrenos agrícolas, que con mucho esfuerzo y con el pasar de los años adquirió. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es poder limpiar la maleza de entre sus sembríos; pero lo que le disgusta son las temporadas de helada que existen producto de las lluvias, ya que pierde muchos sembríos, generándole pérdidas. Por esa razón y porque Fredy es una persona muy inteligente, se dedica también a la ganadería; criando carneros, cerdos, y cuyes, los cuales enseba y revende a un buen precio, logrando así solventar las necesidades de su familia. Le va muy bien en su negocio, por ello más adelante está pensando adquirir una estancia, donde pueda cuidar mejor a sus animales. Él pertenece al banco comunal “Santo domingo de tapo”, y este es el sexto crédito con MFP, donde se siente agradecido por la oportunidad de progreso que obtiene. Fredy, se preparará para la temporada de arveja, por ello con el crédito comprará 1 bolsa de semilla para empezar a sembrar en su terreno agrícola que descansó.
