Carlos
Carlos is 58, and married to Juana. With her, he had his eight children. Now he only lives with Beto, 12, who is the youngest of all. Martin has his own house in the native community of Villa Maria Alto Yurinaki, in Chinchamayo province.

Carlos is an exemplary man. With his dedicated work as a farmer, he has been able to raise his family, and provide a decent education for his children, whom he loves very much, and for whom he works.

He learned to work the land as a child, and sell the products that nature grants him. In the hills near his community, he has three parcels of cropland, where he produces coffee.

Carlos is happy about his results. From the three parcels, he gets around 15 sacks of coffee of approximately 60 kilos each.

At the same time, he buys and sells Brown Swiss cattle. "I buy calves at 1200 soles, and when I have fattened them, I sell them for 2000 soles, so yes, it is profitable," he says.

Carlos wants to expand his livestock business, but without neglecting his crops. This would be the first loan that Carlos that has obtained from MFP. He is excited about this. Now he is part of the "Los Productores Yaneshas" communal bank, which he has high hopes for.

On receiving the money, he will buy bags of fertilizer for his coffee plantings. With what's left over, he will have the money he needs to finish building his house.

Carlos de 58 años está casado con Juana, con ella tuvo a sus 8 hijos. Ahora solo vive con Beto de 12 años, que es el menor de todos. Martín tiene una casa propia en la comunidad nativa Villa María Alto Yurinaki, en la provincia de Chanchamayo. Carlos es un hombre ejemplar. Con su trabajo dedicado en la agricultura ha podido sacar adelante a su familia, y brindarles una educación digna a sus hijos, a quienes quiere mucho y por quienes trabaja. Desde niño aprendió a labrar la tierra y negociar los productos que le otorga la naturaleza. En los montes de su comunidad cuenta con 3 parcelas de terrenos de cultivos, en los que produce café.
Alfonso está contento con sus resultados, de las 3 parcelas obtiene como 15 sacos de café de 60 kilos cada uno aproximadamente.
A la vez, se dedica a la compra y venta de ganados Brown Swiis. “Compro terneras a 1200 soles y cuando las engordó las vendo a 2000 soles. Si es rentable.” Comenta.
Carlos quiere ampliar su negocio de ganados pero sin descuidar sus cultivos. Éste sería el primer préstamo que Carlos obtendría de MFP. Se siente emocionado por eso. Ahora forma parte del banco comunal “Los Productores Yaneshas”, del que se muestra esperanzado. De recibir el dinero, comprará bolsas de abonos para sus sembríos de café. Y con lo restante completará el dinero necesario para terminar de construir su casa.
