Ignacio
Ignacio is 56 years old and lives in the small village of Antabamba. He is noted for being a very simple and hard-working father. He lives in his own home together with his wife, 57 year-old Julia, and his three dependent children who he looks after with a lot of dedication.

Ignacio's arduous workdays on his farm have helped him to improve his family's economic situation. He and his wife are responsible for looking after their children's well-being and so they work as hard as they can, growing potatoes, peas, beans, corn and other vegetables. They then take their produce to sell in the wholesale market in the city of Tarma.

What Ignacio most enjoys about his work is caring for his crops since he knows that healthy produce fetches a better price. He has been in this business for 12 years and he considers the hardest part of his work to be having to climb the steep hills of Antabamba which is where he has his farmland.

Ignacio has support from his wife who buys and sells cattle. She fattens them up and then sells them on for a higher price. In the future, Ignacio hopes to improve his farm and sow all of his land.

Ignacio is a member of the "Los Pinos de Antabamba" (The Pine Trees of Antabamba) community bank and this is his sixth loan from MFP. He hopes for a small loan which will enable him to reach his goals. For his part, he pledges once more to make his repayments on time, as he has done with his previous loans. Ignacio enjoys being a member of his community bank because all the members are responsible and very supportive people.

Ignacio will invest the money he has requested in buying a bag of pea seeds, 20 sacks of Yungay potatoes, organic manure and natural fertilizers.
