Edgar
Edgar is 29 years old. He is a humble man who 6 years ago started a family with Erika, his wife. They have 2 children whom they are raising in their own home located in the community of San Juan. This hardworking farmer spends his time growing potatoes, peas and beans on his own land and on rented land. He rents more productive land sometimes for more production. What he likes the most about his job is being able to care for his crops trimming, fertilizer, and improving the quality of the food in the ripening process. He has 18 years experience in the farming profession and he feels very good about that. He also started a business buying and selling seeds. He takes them to the city of Arequipa, where he makes good profit because that type of seed isn't produced in that area of the Peruvian coast. Now he is planning on improving the quality of his crops and growing his business, since that is what he likes the most. This is his eighth loan with MFP, where he hopes to have your cooperation to continue with his goals. He also promises to once more make his payments on time. Two years ago, Edgar bought his own house. That is why, if he receives your support, he will invest the money he has asked for in repairing the windows, putting in a floor, changing the doors and improving the roof.

Edgar, de 29 años es un hombre muy sencillo; hace 6 años que formó su familia junto a Erika, su esposa. Ambos tienen 2 hijos a los que cuidan en su casa propia ubicada en el caserío de San Juan. Este laborioso hombre “agricultor”, dedica su tiempo en la siembra de papa, alverja y habas en sus terrenos propios y otros arrendados; ya que existen momentos en los que arrienda más terrenos productivos para poder tener mayor producción. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo, es poder cuidar de sus cultivos; podando, fertilizando y mejorando la calidad de los alimentos en su proceso de maduración. Ya tiene 18 años de experiencia en el oficio de agricultor y se siente muy bien por ello. Además que comenzó con el negocio de compra y venta de semilla, los cuales lleva a la ciudad de Arequipa, donde obtiene buenas ganancias gracias a que no se produce semilla en esa parte de la costa peruana. Ahora está planeando mejorar la calidad de sus cultivos y expandir su negocio, ya que es lo que más le gusta. Este es el octavo crédito con MFP, donde espera de su colaboración, para continuar con sus objetivos. Además promete cumplir una vez más con el pago de sus cuotas. Edgar hace 2 años que compró su casa propia, por ello de recibir su apoyo; invertirá el dinero solicitado en el arreglo de las ventanas, entablado del piso, cambio de puertas y en el mejoramiento del techado.
