Heraclio
Heraclio is 43, and a very hard-working man. He tries hard to give the best to his two dear children, who are the reason why he continues working. They live together in their own house. He farms on three hectares of land, where he grows cacao, coffee, achiote (annatto seeds) and peanuts.

His parents taught him to till the soil from the time he was a child, and at the age of 25, he bought his own parcel of land. Since then, he has been working in this business. However, during harvest season and weeding he needs the help of day laborers in order to get the work done more quickly.

He feels very committed to his work, because thanks to his daily efforts, he has the enjoyment of seeing his plants give good crops. He also says that the winter season isn't to his liking, because those are the times when the greatest amount of rain falls, spoiling the shoots of his crops.

This will be his 14th loan with MFP. He expects to be very punctual with his payments, since he doesn't want to cause problems for the institution, and is grateful for their previous assistance. With the 3,000 soles he is applying for, he will buy bags of fertilizer and seeds for trees such as mahogany, tornillo, cedar, and chuncho pine.

Heraclio tiene 43 años, es un hombre muy trabajador y se esmera por dar lo mejor a sus 02 queridos hijos quienes son el motivo para continuar trabajando. Juntos habitan en su propia casa. La labor que realiza es labrar la tierra, pues cuenta con 3 hectáreas de terreno en donde siemnbra cacao, café, achiote y maní. Sus padres le enseñaron a remover la tierra desde muy niño y a la edad de 25 años compró su propia parcela; desde entonces viene trabajando en esta actividad. Sin embargo durante la temporada de cosecha y deshierbo de maleza necesita el apoyo de jornaleros para así acelerar sus trabajo. Se siente muy comprometido con su trabajo, porque gracias a su esfuerzo cotidiano hoy disfruta al ver que sus plantas den buenos frutos. Cuenta asimismo que durante el invierno no es de su agrado porque son épocas donde abunda mayor cantidad de precipitaciones de lluvia, estropeando los brotes de los frutos. Este será su 14avo crédito con MFP, espera ser muy puntual en sus cuotas, ya que no quiere causar problemas a la entidad financiera y agradece su anterior ayuda. Con los 3,000 soles que solicita, comprará sacos de abono y semillas de árboles como: caoba, tornillo, cedro y Pino chuncho.
