Walter de 58 años, reside en la comunidad nativa de Alto Yapas (selva central peruana). Ahí formó su familia junto a Esperanza, su esposa desde hace 30 años. Ambos tienen 2 hijos a los que cuidan en su casa propia. Según cuenta la agricultura es su principal actividad económica, le sirvió para poder sacar adelante a sus 2 hijos, de los cuales se refiere con mucho orgullo; pues heredaron su oficio. En sus 15 años de experiencia en el cultivo de café y plátanos, aprendió a invertir y distribuir de buena manera su dinero. Ahora con mucho orgullo, resume que es uno de los mejores agricultores de la zona. En cada cosecha de café vende sus granos maduros a una empresa de producción de café muy reconocida de la zona, donde obtiene muy buenas ganancias, las que le ayudaron a poner una tienda de comestibles en un pequeño espacio de su casa, donde también vende productos de primera necesidad. Y es que el trabajo arduo, es el lema de Walter, quien además posee un pequeño taller de carpintería donde fabrica muebles y demás productos a base de madera. Ahora él quiere invertir en mejorar su negocio, para poder descansar en su vejez.

Walter, de recibir su apoyo invertirá el dinero solicitado en la compra un motor nuevo para renovar su máquina de carpintería.
