Nelson
Nelson, 30, lives in the native community of Pumpuriani (Peruvian central jungle). He formed a family there with Jovana, 30, his wife. They have four minor children that they care for with much love and affection in his own house. Always responsible and hard working, Nelson has been farming for the last six years. He grows coffee, bananas, corn and annatto on his own lands.

What he most enjoys about his work is his wife’s company who helps him, alongside day laborers he occasionally hires, with his chores. They all work planting, caring for and harvesting the crops. In addition, he confesses with feeling that he likes farming very much because he learned it while still a little boy and he assures that it’s a profitable business because it’s allowed him to build his house, to buy some furniture and, above all, to cover his children’s education and domestic expenses with no problem. Because of this, for later on, he’s planning to work with much dedication to build the rest of his house dividing it into individual rooms and also to equip a room in which to gather crops from surrounding areas and become a fruit wholesaler; he will also continue with his nursery project.

He admits that his group members are quite united. He learns how to work together with them there seeking a better future for each one of them and for all of their community. He’s a member of the “Hormiguitas de Pumpuriani” (Pumpuriani’s Little Ants) communal bank and this is the 6th loan with MFP where he hopes to have collaboration to continue toward his goals. On the other hand, he commits once again to make his installment payments like he’s done in previous loans. He also is grateful for being part of a communal bank because all the members are responsible and very mutually supportive.

If Nelson were to receive the requested support, he will use the money to buy several sacks of organic manure to spread among his coffee plants which he recently planted and that he’s sure will produce a good harvest.

Nelson de 30 años, reside en la comunidad nativa Pumpuriani (selva central peruana). Ahí conformó su familia junto a Jovana de 30 años, su esposa. Ambos tienen 4 hijos menores de edad a los que cuida con mucho amor y cariño en su casa propia. Siempre responsable y trabajador, Nelson se dedica hace 6 años a la agricultura; donde siembra café, plátanos, maíz y achiote, en sus terrenos propios. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es la compañía de su esposa quien le ayuda junto a los peones que contrata eventualmente. Todos trabajan en el plantado, mantenimiento y cosecha de sus tierras. Además confiesa emocionado que la agricultura le gusta mucho. Porque es lo que aprendió desde pequeño, asimismo asegura que su actividad es rentable porque le ha permitido construir su casa, comprar algunos muebles pero sobretodo cubrir la educación de sus hijos y los gastos domésticos sin problema. Por eso para más adelante se proyecta a trabajar con ahínco para construir la otra parte de su casa dividiéndolos en habitaciones individuales, así como también acondicionará un cuarto para acopiar productos oriundos de la zona y convertirse en un gran mayorista de frutos, además continuará con su proyecto del vivero. Reconoce que los integrantes de su asociación son bastante unidos, ahí aprende a trabajar con ellos en busca de un futuro mejor para cada uno y para toda su comunidad. Él pertenece al banco comunal “Hormiguitas de pumpuriani” y este es el sexto 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. Nelson, de recibir su apoyo invertirá el dinero solicitado en la compra de varios sacos de abono orgánico para distribuirlos en sus cultivos de café que hace poco sembró y que está seguro podrá brindarle una buena cosecha.
