Artemio
Artemio is 58 years old and he lives in Palcamayo. He is a man who has always struggled to get ahead in life. He lives alone in his own house, and what he desires the most is to have a peaceful retirement. Through the years, Artemio has learnt that he needs to work very hard if he wants his crops to be the best of his village; and so, with great effort he has succeeded in becoming a leader in the production of potatoes, peas, spinach and carrots. Every one of his crops is highly requested in the markets of the town of Tarma, which is where he gets the best incomes. He has been engaged in this activity for 45 years. What he likes the most about his job is harvesting his products, and he thinks the most difficult part is keeping his lands free form the weeds that constantly grow in his crops. He also says that in his free time he works as a farmhand in other farm lands, as well as by transporting products from the countryside to the city using donkeys, which is known as "aseminas". He is now getting ready to harvest his next “Andina” potato crop, which will be ripen by next week. He is a member of the Banco Comunal “Vigen María” (Virgin Mary Communal Bank), this is the ninth loan he has requested to MFP, and he hopes for its cooperation to keep on working towards his goals. On the other hand, he once more commits to complying with the repayments of his dues, as he has done with the previous loans he has requested. On top of this, he likes being a part of his communal bank because all of its members are very responsible and caring people.
Upon receiving the loan, Artemio will invest the money he has requested to buy a bag of pea seeds and 25 kilos of spinach seeds, and he will use them to start his next crop.

Artemio de 58 años, reside en la localidad de Palcamayo. Se caracteriza por ser un hombre que siempre ha luchado por sobresalir en la vida; vive solo en su casa propia y lo que más desea es tener una vejez tranquila. Los años le han enseñado a Artemio que tiene que trabajar muy duro si quiere que sus cultivos sean los mejores de su poblado. Es así que con mucho esfuerzo ha logrado liderar la producción de papa, arveja, espinaca y zanahoria. En cada cosecha que tiene es muy solicitado en los mercados de la ciudad de Tarma, donde obtiene mejores ganancias. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es cosechar sus productos, lleva 45 años realizando esta actividad y considera que lo más difícil es mantener sus terrenos limpios, ya que crece constantemente maleza entre sus sembríos. Además comenta que en sus tiempos libres trabaja como peón en otros terrenos de cultivo, donde recibe un dinero extra; como también en el trasporte de carga del campo a la ciudad mediante burros; lo cual lo denominan “aseminas”. Ahora él se está preparando para su cosecha de papa de la variedad “andina” que dentro de la próxima semana terminará de madurar. Él pertenece al banco comunal “Virgen María” y este es el noveno crédito con MFP, donde espera de su colaboración, para continuar con 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.
Artemio de recibir su apoyo, invertirá el dinero solicitado en la compra de una bolsa de semilla de arveja y 25 kilos de semilla de espinaca; con lo que podrá comenzar su próximo sembrío.
