Nazario
Nazario is 33 years old, and he lives with his mother. He takes care of her with great affection because she is elderly. They live together in their own house in the Villa Visca settlement in the Huasahuasi – Tarma district.

For over 15 years Nazario has been growing potatoes and peas on his own agricultural land. “During the planting seasons I rent land, and that way I am assured of a good harvest,” he says. He likes working in the field because it relaxes him every time he visits his fields.

Working on the land is tiring, and it absorbs all of Nazario’s time. That is why he hires day workers to accelerate the work. When he is done tending to his crops he works as a day worker on different fields. They pay him 25 soles a day, and that is how he earns extra money.

He is now working for a construction company in his district. His salary is fixed so he does not worry about paying his debts. His main worry is the lack of more agricultural land. Renting uses up more money. Therefore, he is saving what he needs in order to be able to buy more land and increase his production.

This will be his 11th loan, thanks to the help from MFP. He pledges to be punctual with his monthly payments. He belongs to the Villa Visca communal bank. He feels good working with supportive and perseverant people. Nazario will be able to buy four bags of pea seeds for an average of 2,400 soles. He will use the rest of the loan to buy organic fertilizers.

Nazario de 33 años, vive en compañía de su madre, a la que cuida con mucha cariño por su avanzada edad. Ambos viven en su casa propia, ubicada en el caserío de Villa Visca, distrito de Huasahuasi – Tarma. Desde hace más de 15 años, Nazario se dedica a sembrar papas y arvejas, en sus propios terrenos agrícolas, “en temporadas de siembra grande alquilo terrenos, así aseguro una buena cosecha”, dice. Le gusta el trabajo del campo porque se relaja cada vez visita sus parcelas. Las faenas son cansadas y absorben todo el tiempo de Nazario, por eso contrata personal operario para apresurar las actividades.
Cuando termina de atender sus cultivos, trabaja como peón en diferentes sembríos. Le pagan 25 soles por día. Así gana un dinero extra.
Ahora está trabajando en una empresa constructora de su distrito. Su sueldo es fijo, por eso no se preocupa en el pago de sus deudas.
Su principal preocupación es la falta de más terrenos agrícolas, ya que alquilando gasta más dinero, por ello está ahorrando lo necesario para poder comprar una y aumentar su producción. Éste sería su crédito número 11 que recibiría, gracias a su ayuda, de MFP, por eso se compromete en ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas mensuales. Pertenece al banco comunal “Villa Visca”, se siente bien trabajando con personas solidarias y perseverantes. Nazario podrá comprar 4 bolsas de semillas de arvejas con 2400 soles en promedio; lo restante lo destinará para la compra de abonos orgánicos.
