Luis
Luis is 30 years old. He lives with Orfelia, with whom he has a 2 year-old daughter, María Esther. They all live in their own house in the town of Santa Rosa de Palomar, in the district of San Luis de Shuaro, in the provinceof Chanchamayo (in the central jungle). Luis is an exemplary father. He works in agriculture on 2 parcels of land that he has planted in coffee and plantains. He obtains sufficient money from these products to give his family a decent life that covers the basic necessities. He is now planning to plant coffe seedlings on half of a parcel. Work in the countryside is hard and constant and his training is fruitful. This is how Luis learned to differentiate the diseases that threaten his coffee plants. For example, the “cricket eye,” which looks like a burn on the leaves of the coffee, making small dark spots, and “spider-ing,” which affects the leaves and dries out the coffee berries. These are Luis’ enemies, which he has successfully fought during his years as a farmer. In his free time he works as a laborer on lands for his neighbors. So, he is never short of money. His greatest desire is to increase his production of coffee, which he is beginning to make reality with the planting of his coffee seedling nursery. Eventually he will increase his amount of land. This will be the 5th loan he will obtain from Microfinanzas Prisma. He pledges to be punctual in the payment of his monthly repayments. He feels happy and satisfied with his communal bank, “Aroma de Café.” With the money he will buy 7 bags of organic compost and he will also pay workers to weed and care for his coffee plants.

Luis de 30 años, convive con Orfelia, con quien tiene una hija de 2 años, María Esther. Todos ellos viven en una casa propia en la localidad de Santa Rosa de Palomar, distrito de San Luis de Shuaro, provincia de Chanchamayo (selva central). Luis es un padre ejemplar. Se dedica a la agricultura, en 2 parcelas de terrenos tiene sembrado café y plátanos. De estos productos obtiene el dinero suficiente para darle a su familia una vida decente que cubra sus necesidades básicas. Ahora tiene planeado sembrar en media parcela, plantitas de café. El trabajo es duro y constante en el campo, y sus enseñanzas son fructíferas. Es así que Luis aprendió a diferenciar las enfermedades que amenazan a su café. Por ejemplo el “ojo de grillo”, que consiste en la quemadura de las hojas de café, formándose como círculos oscuros y la “arañera”, cuando afecta a las hojas secando los granos. Para Luis éstos fueron sus enemigos, a los que combatió con éxito en todos sus años como agricultor. En sus tiempos libres trabaja como jornalero en otras tierras para sus vecinos. Así no le falta el dinero. Su anhelo más cercano es ampliar su producción de café, lo que está empezando a concretizar con la nueva siembra de sus viveros. Más adelante aumentará sus extensiones de terrenos. Éste sería su préstamo número 5, que obtendrá de MFP. Se compromete a ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas mensuales. Se siente contento y satisfecho con su banco comunal “Aroma de café”. Con el dinero, él podrá adquirir 7 bolsas de abonos orgánicos, también pagará a personal para la limpieza y cuidado de sus plantaciones de café.
