Juan
Juan is 41 years old he is married and with Yolanda, his wife, they have 2 children of 17 and 10 years of age. They all live in rented rooms in the city of Tarma. To give a better education to his children, Juan left his native community for the city of Tarma, where he learned new jobs.

In Juan’s community, Ricrican, he has his own land and cultivates potatoes. His parents and brothers take care of the crops, but Juan travels frequently to make sure of his crops' growth and necessities.

In the city of Tarma Juan started his own stall in the market; his wife sells the potatoes and other varieties that he buys in the wholesaler market. Juan works transporting products to the same market, he uses his three wheeled vehicle to do so, and both of his jobs complement each other. It is through his work that he is able to pay his debts and educate his children the best way possible. “I would like to see my children get a higher education or be professionals, that would be my greatest reward,” Juan remarks. It is for this reason that he will continue to grow potatoes in greater quantities. This will be his fifteenth loan with MFP and is committed to paying his quotas punctually. Juan notes that he enjoys the work in his communal bank since they share the same interests.

Juan will use the loan to buy 5 bags of manure and with what’s left he will buy more potatoes.
