Fredy
27-year-old Fredy is single. He lives with his 48-year-old mother and his 50-year-old father in their own home, in the town of Santa Clara, in Huasahuasi district. Fredy is an exemplary son. He devotes his youth to caring for his parents and working with them. He says that, in spite of the various difficulties that he has experienced in farming, he really enjoys it. His main business activity is growing potatoes. His main problem is the weather which sometimes batters him with intense rain and cold. However, in spite of this, he works with the same effort. Fredy has been farming for 10 years, enough time to get to know the sowing seasons and make sure they coincide with the best time of year for making sales in the wholesale market in the city of Tarma. It really bothers him when buyers insist on lowering prices. In the future, Fredy will acquire his own farmland which will save him money and provide him with stability. His work is hard but, even so, he is the one who makes most income in his family.

Fredy belongs to the "Trabajemos Unidos" (Let's Work Together) community bank and this will be his 12th loan from MFP. He pledges to be punctual in making his loan repayments. He feels happy that he is able to save with his community bank. Fredy will invest his loan money in buying sacks of organic fertilizer with which to fertilize his potatoes.

Fredy de 27 años, es soltero. Vive con su madre de 48 años y de su padre de 50 años, en su casa propia ubicada en la localidad de Santa clara en el distrito de Huasahuasi. Fredy es un hijo ejemplar, dedica su juventud a cuidar a sus padres y trabajar con ellos. Fredy cuenta que a pesar de las diversas dificultades que encontró en la actividad agrícola, le gusta mucho el campo. La siembra de papa, es su principal actividad. Su principal problema es el clima, que a veces lo azota con intensas lluvias y frío intenso, pero a pesar de eso, él trabaja con el mismo esfuerzo. Hace 10 años se dedica al campo, tiempo suficiente para conocer las temporadas de sembrío y para coincidirlos con la época de mayor venta, en el mercado mayorista de la ciudad de Tarma, por ello le molesta mucho, cuando insisten en bajar los precios. Para más adelante adquirirá sus propios terrenos agrícolas, para ahorrarse en pagos y contar con una estabilidad. Su trabajo es arduo y más aún, siendo el que más ingresos económicos aporta en la familia. Él pertenece al banco comunal “Trabajemos unidos”, y este sería su crédito número 12 de MFP, y se compromete a ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas. Se siente contento de poder ahorrar con su banco comunal.
Fredy, invertirá el dinero del préstamo en la compra de bolsas de abonos orgánicos para fertilizar sus cultivos de papas.
