Pedro
Pedro, 40, lives with Cristina. They’ve had 8 children but only two of them who are 13 and 10 years old live with them; the rest are independent. This family lives in the indigenous community of San Pablo de Shaobiato.

Pedro is a tireless man; he does a variety of things. The main and most profitable one is farming because of its variety. He grows coffee, bananas, citrus fruit (oranges, tangelos, and lemons), cocoa beans and ginger on his own land. “I sell the coffee and the cocoa beans at almost the same time; the bananas, oranges and avocadoes, too. Working like this I earn good money,” he comments happily. He also has a business selling soft-drinks, groceries and snacks that he neglected for focusing on the field work. And, if this weren’t enough, he also sells fish and meat that he brings to his community from the city of Pichanaki. For this last work he bought a car for transport. Pedro hopes to consolidate the grocery business into a store where he will sell a variety of products so he will continue with the coordinated work.

This will be his first loan thanks to MFP’s help. He is convinced that he will make his payments punctually. With respect to the communal bank, he mentions that he feels happy and hopeful. If he were to get the loan, he will use it to buy a sack of sugar, a sack of rice, oil in bottles, conserves, soft-drinks, etc. and a piece of furniture to equip his store.

Pedro de 40 años de edad, convive con Cristina. Ambos vieron nacer 8 hijos, pero solo viven con 2 de 13 y 10 años, los demás son independientes. Esta familia vive en la comunidad nativa San Pablo de Shaobiato. Pedro es un hombre incansable, se dedica a varias actividades. La principal y más rentable es la agricultura por su gran variedad. En sus terrenos propios siembra café, plátanos, cítricos (naranjas, tanyelos y limones), cacao y kión. “El café y el cacao los vendo casi al mismo tiempo; y el plátano, naranja y palta también. Trabajando así gano un buen dinero”, comenta contento. Así también, cuenta con un negocio de gaseosas, abarrotes y golosinas, que descuidó por entregarse a las labores del campo. Y como si fuera poco, comercializa carnes de pescados y pollo, los que trae de la ciudad de Pichanaki hasta su comunidad. Para esta labor, adquirió un motocarro para el traslado.
Pedro espera consolidar el negocio de abarrotes como una bodega, en la que expenderá diversos productos. Por eso continuará con el trabajo coordinado. Este sería el primer préstamo que obtendrá, gracias a su ayuda, de MFP. Se muestra convencido de que pagará puntualmente las cuotas. En cuanto a su banco comunal, menciona sentirse contento y esperanzado. De concretarse el crédito, lo invertirá en la compra de 1 saco de azúcar, 1 saco de arroz, aceite en botellas, conservas, gaseosas, etc.; y un mueble. Todo esto para equipar su tienda.
