Felix
Félix is a courageous and hardworking man. He is 37 years old, and along with his wife Dina cares for his three minor children: Fresia, Frank and Denis, who live in familial harmony in their own home, located in the hamlet of Yanama Alta.

The work he has done for 15 years is farming, in which he grows various crops native to the area such as potatoes, peas and gladioli. What he enjoys most about his work is to be able to invest, since his secret is to plant crops on a staggered basis, which consists of planting a variety of products so as to counteract fluctuations in market prices. Now after his next harvest he will begin sowing beans, ahead of season, and in this way he will stabilize his finances. In addition he has five bulls with which he does plowing, making 60 Peruvian soles a day, but he does that activity in his free time so, in his own words, it is "his hobby."

Félix's plans are to acquire a car with which to offer public transportation, in addition to being able to own his own farmland since he currently rents large areas of land to do his farming. He belongs to the communal bank "Manantiales de Yanama" [Springs of Yanama] and this is his sixth loan with MFP. He is an active member and committed to the work of the other members of his bank. Thus he hopes for the support of all of you so he may keep pursuing his objectives.

Félix will harvest gladioli within a few days, and so upon receiving his support he is thinking of investing the money in the purchase of one bag of pea seeds for which he will also require six bags of natural fertilizers, and thus successfully begin his next planting.

Félix, es un hombre valiente y trabajador, tiene 37 años; que junto a su esposa Dina, cuidan de sus 3 menores hijos; Fresia, Frank, y Denis. Los que en armonía familiar viven en su casa propia, ubicada en el caserío de Yanama Alta. El trabajo que desarrolla desde hace 15 años, es la agricultura; donde siembra diversos productos oriundos como papa, arveja y flor de gladiolo. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es poder invertir, pues su secreto es la siembra escalonada, que consiste en sembrar diversos productos, para poder contrarrestar las variaciones de los precios en el mercado. Ahora después de su próxima cosecha, comenzará a sembrar habas, adelantándose a la temporada, de esa manera estabilizará su economía. Aparte de tener 5 toros con los que surca la tierra, ganando así S/. 60 soles diarios, pero esta actividad lo realiza en sus tiempos libres, por lo que, según sus propias palabras es “su pasatiempo”. Los planes de Félix, es adquirir un auto con el que pueda dedicarse al transporte público, además de poder tener sus propios terrenos agrícolas ya que trabaja alquilando grandes extensiones de tierra. Él pertenece al banco comunal “Manantiales de Yanama”, y esté es el sexto crédito con MFP, donde es un socio activo y comprometido con el trabajo que desempeñan los integrantes de su banco. Por ello espera del apoyo de todos ustedes para continuar con sus objetivos.
