Virgilio
Virgilio, 42, lives with María Elena with whom he has five children who are 18, 16, 13, 10 and 7 years old. This numerous but united family lives in a house of their own in the indigenous community of Yavirironi, Río Negro District-Satipo.

Virgilio started farming 20 years ago; his specialty is cocoa bean production. His family needs pushed him to acquire more land where he now grows coffee. Two years still have to pass before his coffee produces its first beans; Virgilio is excited. “Cocoa bean sales are profitable. Each year I harvest 5 sacks of 70 kilos each,” he says. His best sales take place in the city of Satipo which is why he mostly lives there capturing customers.

Virgilio is an intelligent man. With all of his knowledge about the fields he manages to support and educate his five children. He still has many goals to reach, like seeing his children become independent people, and he will not rest until they do so. He now plans to open a small grocery store that his children can run when they are on vacation.

This would be his first loan with MFP so he commits to being punctual with his monthly installment payments. He also mentions that he feels happy to be part of the new “Inkani” communal bank. With the money he will be able to open a small grocery store at home. To do so he will buy groceries, soft-drinks and snacks.

Virgilio de 42 años convive con María Elena, con quien tiene 5 hijos de 18, 16, 13, 10 y 7 años. Esta numerosa pero unida familia vive en una casa propia ubicada en la comunidad nativa Yavirironi, distrito de Río Negro – Satipo. Hace 20 años, Virgilio inició con las actividades agrícolas. La producción de cacao era su especialidad. Las exigencias de su familia le impulsaron a adquirir otros terrenos de cultivos donde ahora cultiva café.
Aún tiene que pasar 2 años para que el café produzca sus primeros granos. Virgilio está emocionado.
“La venta de cacao es rentable, cada año cosecho 5 sacos de 70 kilos cada uno”, dice. Las mejores ventas las consuma en la ciudad de Satipo, por eso mayormente reside en ese lugar, captando clientes.
Virgilio es un hombre inteligente. Con todos sus conocimientos en el campo logra mantener y educar a sus 5 hijos. Aún le falta muchos objetivos por cumplir, como ver a sus hijos como personas independientes, para ello no descansará hasta verlos realizar. Ahora piensa abrir un pequeño negocio de comestibles, para que sus hijos lo atiendan mientras están de vacaciones. Éste sería su primer crédito con MFP, por eso se compromete a ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas mensuales. Además menciona sentirse contento por formar parte del nuevo banco comunal “Inkani”. Con el dinero podrá abrir un pequeño negocio de comestibles en su casa, para ello comprará abarrotes, gaseosas y golosinas.
