Luis
Luis, 30, lives in Palomar (Peruvian Central Jungle). He formed his family there with Orfelia, his wife of two years. They have a daughter, María, who they care for with much love and affection since she’s still a little girl.

Luis’s life has been the fields, an activity that is necessary to live. Since he was a little boy his parents always taught him how to work the land, to make it productive and to live off it. Because of this he decided to continue the family activity and now he has his own fields planted with coffee and bananas. He has two hectares of farmland. When the harvests are collected he sells them in the market in the city of La Merced. What he most enjoys about his work is planting because he knows that profits depend on the good care he provides his plants. He’s been in this line of work for 10 years and considers the brusque weather changes that affect crop yields quite a bit to be the most difficult part of it.

In the future he’d like to continue to work hard improving his crops because he knows that he will reach his objectives since he works tirelessly. On his spare time he helps out other farmers who pay him a bit of extra money.

He belongs to the “Aroma de Café” (Aroma of Coffee) communal bank and this is the fourth loan with MFP where he hopes to receive financial support to reach his goals. On the other hand, he commits once again to pay his installments like he did with the previous loans he got. Also, he enjoys being part of his communal bank because all the members are responsible and very mutually supportive people.

If Luis were to get the requested loan he will invest the money in the purchase of several sacks of organic manure to spread among his coffee and banana crops which haven’t ripened yet.

Luis, de 30 años, reside en la localidad del Palomar (selva central peruana), ahí formó su familia junto a Orfelia, su esposa desde hace 2 años. Ambos tienen una hija, María a la que cuidan con mucho amor y cariño, ya que es todavía una niña. Los campos de cultivo han sido en la vida de Luis, una actividad necesaria para vivir, ya que desde muy pequeño sus padres siempre le enseñaron a trabajar la tierra, producirla y vivir de ella, es por eso que decidió continuar con esta labor familiar y ahora tiene sus propios cultivos, donde tiene sembrados café y plátano, en las 2 hectáreas de terrenos agrícolas que posee; los cuales una vez cosechados llevará a vender al mercado de la ciudad de La Merced. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es sembrar, ya que sabe que depende del buen cuidado que brinde a sus sembríos, las ganancias que obtenga. Lleva 10 años realizando esta actividad y considera que lo más difícil es cuidar sus cultivos de los cambios bruscos del clima, ya que eso afecta mucho su productividad. En adelante, desea seguir trabajando duro y mejorando sus cultivos, pues sabe que logrará sus objetivos ya que trabaja sin descanso. En sus tiempos libres sigue apoyando en las labores agrícolas a diferentes agricultores, que le pagan un dinero extra. Él pertenece al banco comunal “Aroma de Café” y este es el cuarto crédito con MFP, donde espera de su apoyo financiero para lograr sus objetivos. Por otro lado se compromete una vez más a cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas, como en anteriores créditos que tuvo. Además le agrada ser parte de su banco comunal porque todos sus integrantes son personas responsables y muy solidarias. Luis, de obtener su apoyo invertirá el dinero solicitado en la compra de varios sacos de abono orgánico para esparcirlos en sus cultivos da café y plátanos que todavía no maduran.
