Juan
Juan is 25 years old, single, and lives in his parents' home. His parents are 50 year-old Pablo and 49 year-old Nieves. They live together in the town of Alto Yapaz (in the central Peruvian jungle). Juan's main job is to properly care for his plantations. He has been in this business for 12 years and he enjoys watching his plantations of bananas, coffee, citrus fruit and other native products grow. It is difficult having to weed his plantations often. He doesn't like cutting or pulling weeds because he says that his arms ache from carrying out this work every day. For this reason, he prefers planting, fertilizing and harvesting. He puts into practice the techniques that his father taught him.

In the future, Juan would like to continue planting more coffee and bananas as these are products that are very much in demand in the market. He would also like to build his own home and set up a grocery store where his future wife can work.

Juan is a member of the "Los Progresistas" community bank and this is his third loan from MFP. He says that he has worked as an active member of his group since he joined. Juan will use his loan to buy coffee plants and several sacks of fertilizer to fertilize his crops.

Juan, tiene 25 años, es soltero, vive en casa de sus padres, Pablo de 50 años y Nieves de 49 años. Junto viven en la localidad de Alto Yapaz (selva central peruana). Cuidar adecuadamente sus chacras es su principal función, desde hace 12 años le gusta ver como se desarrollan las plantaciones de plátanos, café, frutas cítricas, entre otros productos oriundos de esta zona. Aunque le incomoda tener que limpiarlos a menudo pues no le gusta machetear ni retirar la maleza, ya que asegura que estando a diario con esta actividad sus brazos le duelen, por eso prefiere plantar, fertilizar y cosechar. Por otro lado, pone en práctica las técnicas agrícolas que le enseñó su padre. En adelante desea continuar plantando más café y plátano, productos muy solicitados por los mercados, además de construir su propia casa, para instalar un negocio de venta de comestibles, donde pueda atender su futura esposa. Él pertenece al banco comunal “Los progresistas”, y este es el tercer crédito con MFP, donde comenta que desde un principio trabaja de manera activa en su banco comunal, junto a los integrantes. Juan, con el crédito, podrá comprar plantas de café y varios sacos de abono para fertilizar sus cultivos.
